Well, I guess that clinches who was in the box. I'm still not ENTIRELY ruling out Para, but...yeah.

It just occurred to me that this is probably a diversion, and the main attack will come from another angle.

Freeflier, that one's from D-day, world war 2. Wikipedia suggests Gerd von Rundstedt as a likely candidate :D

I've seen references to it being used during WWI, and I doubt it was new then. Probably one of Sargon's sergeants said it to a dithering junior officer!

Oh, von Rundstedt probably said it, or something similar (not least because that was reportedly one of the few ways of getting through to Hitler at the end), but I doubt he was the originator.
