The indirect approach was a strategy described and chronicled by B. H. Liddell Hart after World War I. The strategy calls for armies to advance along the line of least expectation against the least resistance. His theory was the opposite of the tactics used during World War I. While he originally developed the theory for infantry, contact with J. F. C. Fuller helped change his theory more towards tanks. The indirect approach would become a major factor in the development of blitzkrieg.
