German tactical doctrine ascribed attack as superior to defence. Even when outgunned, German commanders were trained to seek ways to use speed and surprise to attack and destroy the enemy and junior officers were empowered to react to a local situation without the need to seek higher approval. By 1944, however, millions of casualties had drained the German Heer of much of its quality and the strategic situation meant that it was mostly operating on the defensive. Despite this, the Allied invaders of Normandy quickly learned to fear and respect the weapons, determination and tactical ability of the German Grenadiers.
