To many it would later seem as if the rule book of war had been torn up and thrown away. The First World War is usually characterised as a static war of attrition, but by its end a new doctrine of fire and movement emerged with the squad as the key tactical unit, marking a fundamental shift in methods of warfare. As late as March 1918, assault detachments... more...
