ISIS copying 19th century German tactics to wage war on the West: Operatives given a deadline to strike targets… then left to it so ‘lone wolves’ cannot be tied to commanders

Lone wolf jihadis operating in Europe are following a doctrine of 19th century warfare in which they are given a deadline and a target – then sent to attack it by any means necessary.

Invoking the Germany Army’s historical strategy of Auftragstaktik, the policy helps ISIS carry out attacks abroad when its chain of command is restricted by Western intelligence agencies.

This allows operatives hiding in Europe to inflict terror with a large degree of autonomy, while also inhibiting authorities from tracing their chain of command.

The bloodthirsty militant group admitted to following the technique in a recent issue of Dar al-Islam, its French-language propaganda magazine.

It was this strategy of warfare that led to the November 13 Paris attacks, in which 130 people died, and the Brussels bombings two weeks ago that killed another 32.

The doctrine was first developed in the early 19th century in Prussia in response to the state’s crushing defeat against Napoleon.
