  Round and Round We Go: The Classic Battle of Encirclement in TOAW
Encirclement is one of the surest methods to thoroughly annihilate an enemy force and is considered by many to be the “holy grail” of operational maneuver and strategic warfare.
Encirclement as a goal is rarely achievable against a competent opponent who is able to maintain himself in the field, however, the long term benefits of encirclement should not be overlooked.
Encirclement should be the preferred aim in many cases as it immediately puts a large number of enemy forces at reduced effectiveness and a risk of annihilation.

  Encirclement - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Encirclement is a military term for the situation when one side's force or target is isolated and surrounded by other side's forces.
This situation is considered to be highly dangerous for the encircled force, at the strategic level, because the force cannot recieve supplies or reinforcements, and on the tactical level, because the units in the force can be subject to an attack from several sides.
A third and more rare type of encirclement can ensue from a breakthrough in the centre of the enemy front, and exploiting that with mobile forces, diverging in two directions behind the enemy line.
