Strategical Defensive Operations book
Strategical defensive operations aim chiefly at avoiding decision at the commencement of the operations, so as to seek it under more favourable circumstances, such as the exhaustion of the enemy, the occupation of some especially advantageous position, or the arrival of reinforcements which were not available at the outset. The most instructive campaign for the study of such operations is that, repeatedly mentioned, of Napoleon in 1813, after the armistice.
