yeah, this was in art of seduction, it would be between rake and coquette.
I would say it is relative to the persons implementation of the power dynamic. Offense without defense is weaker when the flanks are not covered, or someone who is of equal ability. Making sure to stay adaptable and observe whatever works.
historical wall of text.
Not to get into a historical context, but “Flanking the Maginot Line” is a good example here. The tanks were lightweight, smaller, fuel efficient, compared to the heavier/ heavy/firepower (more defensive). Simply going around was the offensive solution, to avoid conventional attrition warfare.
The two surviving/successful strategies during the whole period were “Superior firepower” and “Human Wave/Defense in Depth (Mechanical Wave/tactical retreat)”. At the end, the strategy of highly mobile force was combined with superior firepower (Mechanical infantry).
A pure offensive strategy is highly predictable, as well devastating loss during failure. Moving around and played with like a ping pong ball. Not being able to defend infrastructure.
