Do you have a month in mind?1931 is as far back as I would like to go. Before then it's more like WW1 than WW2
September 18, 1931Do you have a month in mind?
I don't believe "low intensity" (to use a modern term) conflicts prior to "1931" preclude WW2 like troops...EX P.A. type MMC versus Philippine Partisans... US forces in Cuba vs. Spanish Forces same... Whether this is of interest to any given ASLer is another point...that it is WW1 is not so. Nor for that matter are Rommel's "attacks" in Slovenia during WW1 itself.
The German experience with the Stosstruppen in the latter half of WW1 formed the basis for infantry doctrine and with further interwar development became the standard for Germany in WW2. The combination of infiltration (and avoidance of resistance where possible), decentralised command and mobile firepower remained the same, just decent numbers of tanks added. Armour just followed the same principals, get in behind the easiest way possible and wreak havoc behind the enemy lines.Actually ready Rommel’s book it sounded like the new stosstruppe tactics was more squad based than platoon movement.
