An ambush is a long-established military tactic, in which the aggressors (the ambushing force) take advantage of concealment and the element of surprise to attack an unsuspecting enemy from concealed positions, such as among dense underbrush or behind hilltops. Ambushes have been used consistently throughout history, from ancient to modern warfare.

Famous quotes containing the word ambush:

    Some fell by laudanum, and some by steel,
    And death in ambush lay in every pill.
    Samuel, Sir Garth (1661–1719)

    Remember then our only shape is death
    When mask and face are nailed apart at last.
    Range-finding laughter, and ambush of tears,
    Machine-gun practice on the heart’s desires....
    Philip Larkin (1922–1986)

    War is not a life: it is a situation,
    One which may neither be ignored nor accepted,
    A problem to be met with ambush and stratagem,
    Enveloped or scattered.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
