A Hunnish Meaning of SS

SS is also short for Stosstruppen, German WWI assault infantry. They basically took all the developments in offensive infantry tactics everyone was developing and brought them together in a coherent whole. BTW, the first major, modern combined arms attack was also in WWI but the BEF.
