The enemy had decided to attack, but canceled or delayed the D-Day at the last minute for reasons such as bad weather, unsuitable political conditions, dissatisfaction with the plan of attack or the military doctrine, or a high level of alert on the defender’s side. The best-known example of this sequence of a planned attack, followed by a countermobilization and then the deferring of the attack, is Hitler’s series of decisions to launch an offensive in the west: attacks were planned and then cancelled in November 1939 and January 1940, while the attack was finally carried out in May 1940.
