An ambush is a military tactic in modern warfare where one force uses concealment to attack a second force that moves into the area. Ambushers strike from concealed positions such as among dense underbrush, behind hilltops and from camouflaged dugouts. This tactic is generally used by units below and up to platoon size, to attack units up to company size.
