Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Update to the question:
Is there a particular event during the war that "the blitzkrieg" brings to mind?
Regards,
-scott
Welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson.
New "The blitzkrieg" = Poland ... "The blitz" = London

New Maybe the earliest events that qualified: Spain
Guernica--for those who adsorb 'politics' via artistic depiction aka pics not words.

Thus depicted Picasso: the joint-German/Italian bombing of a village in 1937--proving ground for events following Sept. 1939.

But generally I share--as icon--the 'motorized cavalry' sturm und drang as cited by others.
ie ground action not unlike a day at a NASCAR event/with guns?

Vroom Vroom ... Aieeeeee! ... [bleed] [suffer] ... [die] [make movie] [get rich, so:Make more, glorifying this shit]
New Not for me.
I just associate it with Nazi Germany at war: aerial bombardments from them on London and from the Brits over Germany.
