Thanks for that John! I recently read The Defence of Duffer’s Drift and I think one of the points made was the need to dig parapet foxholes!

I contacted Col. McBreen and asked what he based his article on, and he very kindly passed on two references:

http://usacac.army.mil/cac2/cgsc/carl/download/csipubs/SelectedPapersofGeneralWilliamDepuy.pdf

http://usacac.army.mil/cac2/csi/docs/Gorman/06_Retired/02_Retired_1991_99/06_92_SecretFutureVictories_Feb.pdf

In Gen. DePuy’s papers, he refers to the assault/suppression balance being a lucky find from the PARFOX results (p300).

The Secret Future document is more specific and contains tables of results concerning the PARFOX results (p170-173).

Now I need to study them in detail!
