Re: How about more annoying the French!

"He had to order it twice because the first time Guderian asked for permission to send reconnaissance patrols and then proceeded to send all his troops to "reconnaissance"."

Guderian's problem was that he just wanted to win the war, whereas Hitler wanted to kill anybody he disapproved of in the largest possible numbers, allow his toadies to loot the world, and demonstrate that he was the greatest military geenius of the 20th century. It's slightly amusing that Hitler kept complaining about his generals, because in the end he became their biggest obstacle to doing the job properly.
