Can someone clarify which unit is the "hammer" and which is the "anvil"? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:12, 20 March 2013 (UTC)

The infantry or pinning force is the anvil and the cavalry or maneuvering force is the hammer. (talk) 10:20, 3 October 2015 (UTC)


There is an unpleasantly conversational tone here: "You wouldn't just let your cavalry.." User:Pedant (talk) 22:19, 12 February 2010 (UTC)

Agreed. I tried to re-write that part to be more neutral.
I still find the part about the "hopping" technique to be slightly confusing. I don't understand how it's significantly different from a normal flanking maneuver. Buddy23Lee (talk) 22:48, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
