No. The typical blitzkrieg is a fast-paced invasion using waves of attack and throws everything the army has to use in the invasion at the opposition. It involved aircraft, tanks, artillery fire and other sorts of weaponry and was only really used by the Germans. It was characterized by the speed at which the attack was carried out.

"Germany successfully used the Blitzkrieg tactic against Poland (attacked in September 1939), Denmark (April 1940), Norway (April 1940), Belgium (May 1940), the Netherlands (May 1940), Luxembourg (May 1940), France (May 1940), Yugoslavia (April 1941), and Greece (April 1941)."
