Front line


The Forward Line of Enemy Troops (FLET) is the FEBA from the enemy's perspective. ==Etymology== Although the term "front line" first appeared in the 1520s, it was only in 1842 that it was recorded used in the military sense.


Its first use as an adjective was from 1915. The word "front" gained the military sense of "foremost part of an army" in the mid-14th century, which, in turn, led the word to take on the meaning "field of operations in contact with the enemy" in the 1660s.


That sense led to the phrase [front], which first appeared in 1919.
