Sure, ops are delayed all the time (on the bus, off the bus) but probably what they referred to was "delaying" ops, selling land (slowly) for time iot allow your main force to get organised from a position of strength etc, the ultimate aim being to be able to get on the offence...

Or delayed ops could be the result of the closure of military hospitals!! Pardon the satire!

You could also include Operation SEALION, which has been delayed for almost 70 years now.

These traditionally occur as a result of the YO - map interface and have been a factor in war fighting/leadership (Columbus springs to mind) since the beginning of time.

Clauswitz does not specifically mention this when he refers to ‘friction’ presumably to save the young Junkers blushes as I refuse to believe they were immune to this.
