what are "delayed ops"

#1
propper crow question , i overheard some boot neck talking about "delayed ops" it was in relation to trip flare's. just curious as to the details and came on here to ask to avoid the shame and embarrasment of asking any one face to face :D

p.s not a "wah"

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...

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.
