Attack in detail

From The Great War 1914-1918

Attack in detail: In order to accomplish warlike operations it is first necessary to break through the enemy's front. One of the portions thus separated may then be contained by a detachment of the attacking army, while the main force overwhelms the other part. The whole army is then available for crushing the part of the enemy's force that has been contained. This strategic operation was highly developed and successfully employed by Napoleon. [1]
