Good edits, Noel. Thanks.
I am thankful that CZ is not as compulsive as WP about having lots of graphics. Noel or anyone, do you think it would be useful to have a sequence of 3 or so block diagrams showing how a double envelopment works?
There are more complex modern examples where air strikes on the enemy rear are coordinated with the land movements, but that may be getting too specific -- or is the sort of thing that might be appropriate to an "advanced" tab. For that matter, this isn't so recent -- I can think of some twentieth-century, or possibly earlier, where either air/artillery or a covert force would do things like take out a key bridge that further isolated the enemy rear.
Is it too silly an analogy to draw a tactical analogy to attacking a road convoy by taking out the lead and trail vehicles, so the convoy can't maneuver? Howard C. Berkowitz 14:14, 17 May 2008 (CDT)
