Offensive Strategy: Weak Points versus Strong Points

“True, Kruger’s plan was daring. He and Steyn had chosen attack as the best form of defence. But none of their pre-emptive blows was planned, as real offensive strategy demanded, to fall where the enemy was weakest. On the contrary, the aim was to find the strongest points in the enemy’s attacking force and then smash them. (Pakenham, 2004, p.168-169).
