"Lightning warfare suggests initiative and spirit of the offensive; it carries with it the element of surprise, not so much in the happening as in the speed and force with which the attack is launched and delivered. It is not founded on new weapons but on the coordinated team employment of available weapons. It envisages all-out war and is the antithesis of stabilized warfare. It is the very embodiment of the two fundamentals of attack - fire and movement."
