ATTACK BY F. O. MIKSCHE
Introduction by TOM WINTRINGHAM
ONE OF the most bitter lessons recently learned by the peoples of the United Nations is that they cannot possibly win the war by defensive tactics. A tremendous shift of opinion in favor of hold offensives on all fronts is beginning to have its influence, and now the demand is spreading everywhere for a determined advance against the enemy instead of a succession of retreats to "previously prepared positions." This book uncompromisingly champions e doctrine of attack. It is a realistic study f modern warfare, with special emphasis on the technique of the lightning offensive as developed and used by the Germa-With a wealth of detail, it describes the organization essential for this type of warfare. The elements of surprise and speed in attack are discussed in terms of the tactics employed by combat units, or teams, as well as entire divisions and armies. Even in the realm of defense, the principle of attack is the only effective means of countering the Blitzkrieg, because "from a system of well defense," made up of islands of resistance, a combat team or an army can hold long enough to start its own counter-offensive. The emphasis is always on attack!
Major Miksche, after many years in the Czechoslovakian Regular Army, fought in Spain as an artillery and staff officer at the Headquarters of the Spanish Republican Army. He is now serving with a detachment of Czechoslovakian volunteers somewhere in England. His book, Attack, is the first in English to present the tactical details of warfare of offense.
