Quote from B. H. Liddell Hart,

"In strategy the longest way round is often the shortest way there;
a direct approach to the object exhausts the attacker and hardens the resistance by compression,
whereas an indirect approach loosens the defender's hold by upsetting his balance."


B. H. Liddell Hart (more quotes by B. H. Liddell Hart or books by/about B. H. Liddell Hart)

(1895-1970) British military historian and strategist
