                2. Oskar von Hutier



                Hutier had noticed that in many previous battles, the conventional method of launching an attack, with a lengthy artillery barrage all along the line followed by an assault from massed infantry, was leading to disastrous losses. He suggested an alternative approach, now called either Hutier Tactics or infiltration tactics. LINK
