Military Tactics
While many use the terms Tactics and Strategy interchangeably, and often incorrectly, it is defined quite simply and clearly by Prussian theorist Carl von Clausewitz.
"Tactics teaches the use of armed forces in the engagement; strategy, the use of engagements for the object of the war."
Military Tactics
Military tactics entail the management and maneuvering of forces to capture objectives and/or defeat the enemy. Tactics must be adapted to the current conditions, and are chosen with regard to the size and type of forces available; taking into account the size and strength of enemy forces. Other important factors in determining tactics are logistics, terrain, reconnaissance, and the likely tactics of the enemy.
Operational Tactics
Operational tactics are any tactics which are coordinated with your allies, and often play into the long term strategy for the entire battle. Operational tactics achieve results on a grand scale, and the strongest allies are those that can work together in unison.
"After that, comes tactical maneuvering, than which there is nothing more difficult. The difficulty of tactical maneuvering consists in turning the devious into the direct, and misfortune into gain."
Sun Tzu, the Art of War
No ground can be gained, and no wars can be won, without advancing your forces to attack enemy territory
Increase troop morale, combat effectiveness, and most importantly give your wounded a chance to heal by retreating
Flanking Maneuver
Cutting off the path of retreat for the advancing enemy will usually halt their offensive, and possibly even offer a chance to get some "kills".

Pincer Movement
The ultimate counter tactic against an overly agressive enemy, the Pincer Movement has been used for over 2000 years; to encircle invading forces. If your flanks are strong and mobile, the pincer movement is a very good counter to the breakthru or blitzkrieg.
Basically any use diversionary maneuvers, attacks, and tactics to confuse the enemy; most commonly used to concentrate enemy forces in a desired area, and then to attack with your main force in another (weakened) area.
Rotating your Forces (cycling)
Keep the enemy constantly engaged by rotating multiple divisions of troops; one attacks as another retreats to heal.. Deny your opponents a chance to resupply and reinforce, while keeping your own forces fresh and combat effective.
Concentrate a large, mobile attack force at one point in the enemy lines, to accomplish a breakthru and continue a "lightning attack" forward. Often a syncronized, coordinated attack, utilizing land and air forces simultaneously.
Similar to blitzkrieg, but intead of continuing forward the flanks turn outward to cutoff the enemy flanks. If your flanks are strong enough, the breakthru is a very good counter to the pincer movement.

Born mostly as an infantry tactic, where two or more groups make a slow advance forward; with each taking taking turns advancing and securing a defensive position, before the other advances.
Divide & Conquer
At times enemy forces may be stronger as a whole, force them to split up by dividing your forces and attacking on mulitple fronts.
Center Peel
Also born as an infantry tactic, where troops perform a staggered retreat, leaving some forces engaged as others "peel" off the formation one-by-one; usually in a diagonal direction of the front lines
Infiltration comes in may forms, and is best described as any method of getting fast, lightly equipted troops behind enemy lines to disrupt supply lines, capture cities, perform sabotage, or attack critical enemy bases/structures.
Obtaining encirclement against an enemy force is one of the most advantageous positions possible, forcing your adversary to attempt a risky breakout maneuver; or be faced with the possiblity of fighting a battle of annihilation.
The breakout is an emergency retreat to avoid or escape from an enemy encirclement; keeping in mind that circumstances may dictate the necessity to sacrifice some of your forces, to save the majority.
Bait and Bleed
In conflicts with three or more combatants, the "bait and bleed" is a tactic of non-involvement, allowing you to maintain or increase your military and economic strength, while the other parties do battle and become weaker.
Fabian Strategy
The Fabian strategy is a tactic of avoiding decisive battles, instead taking a defensive position, and looking for small skirmishes to wear down your opponent; buying time to build military and economic strength

Uses in History
In most cases, we'll take a look at some famous examples regarding the usage of each of these military tactics. Many have been used throughout the centuries, and remain viable to this day. Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it!
Counter Tactics
To every action there is always an opposed and equal reaction.. The wise commander will be able to counter the tactics being employed by their enemy(s); and it's often the counter tactics which end up dealing the most punishing blows. We'll touch on some basic ideas for countering each tactic.
