Just after this article was published I read a fascinating (and I think related) paragraph in The Age of the Unthinkable: Why the New World Disorder Constantly Surprises Us And What We Can Do About It by Joshua Cooper Ramo.

At one point the book is discussing indirect effects and warfare and the surprising result that ignoring an actual advancing army and instead firing on their support columns resulted in the fastest stopping of an invasion.

They had a sentence that reminded me of my article “Such an approach took a bit of stomach. It meant directing limited military resources, at a moment of intense peril, away from the big mass target.”
