The effect they seek to achieve is not simply attritional, but the shattering of an enemys cohesion. Many of the great captains of war have achieved these effects, but their lessons for deep maneuver have been lost amidst the other details of their campaigns. A study is therefore needed across history if one is to identify the enduring lessons, solely relating to deep maneuver: that is the aim of this thesis. Four classic deep maneuver periods are therefore used to identify these lessons: Napoleon in 1805 and 1806 and 1812, the Werhmacht.
