Stay on Target!

“Unfortunately, a few forts and strong points continued to hold out all night, and our attacking force foolishly allowed itself to be drawn into a fight for these points before pushing on with its main attack.

It is a great mistake to allow oneself to be diverted from the main line of one’s plan by relative trivialities.” (Rommel, 1953, p132).

Field-Marshal Erwin Rommel (the Desert Fox), World War I junior officer and World War II General, considered a brilliant military commander; adored by his troops and feared by his enemies.
