The principle of attacking on the enemy's flank has been employed in warfare for as long as war has been fought. Vast armies attack in formation from the flank, as main artillery engages frontal. The predatory behaviour depicted by a pair of muggers in the street will often employ the pincer approach where one subject will distract frontal as the other suckers the unsuspecting target from the flank. The tactic of "In-Quartata" from fencing employs flanking from an offensively-defensive perspective, where one combatant will move out of line from an oncoming assault whilst simultaneously attacking on the flank.
The "Turtle" trading program started by Richard Dennis is, by any measure, one of the greatest success stories in the entire history of trading. Here's a brief background: Richard Dennis was a successful (he turned a $400 family loan into $200 million!) Chicago trader and money manager who firmly believed that successful trading methods could be taught. His partner disagreed. Dennis then went out and recruited 14 people - some of whom had NO trading experience - and taught them his trading methods. He called them his "Turtles" and, after a brief training period, they went on to become masters of the markets.
