Delay

1. An operation usually conducted when the commander needs time to concentrate or withdraw forces, to establish defenses in greater depth, to economize in an area, or to complete offensive action elsewhere. In the delay, the destruction of the enemy force is secondary to slowing his advance to gain time. (PAM 3-071) 2.
