Title:
Storm troopers and trench raiders: Innovation and perception of German and Canadian specialized assault units in the First World War
Authors:
Zimmermann, Simon
Abstract:
The initial approach of the German Army on infantry tactics before 1914 was antiquated at best. There are three distinctive attributes which can be applied to the German infantry of 1914 during the outbreak of First World War and the first engagements in Belgium and France: order, discipline and cohesion. The Canadian militia and its contribution to the war in Europe, the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF), on the other hand were completely different in almost every regard in comparison to the Imperial German Army.
