Blitzkrieg

 

a theory of the conduct of war, developed by German militarists, to win complete victory over the enemy in as short a time as possible, measurable in days or months. The expectations of the German General Staff for the success of a blitzkrieg in World War I (1914–18) and World War II (1939–45) were not realized.
