English term or phrase: the benefit of high ground to the rear
In many areas German front-line positions also had the benefit of high ground to the rear. This meant that machine-gunners and also artillery observers could see both no man's land and the area likely to be occupied if an Allied attack was initially successful.

Cela semble simple mais ma première tentative de traduction n'est en fait pas très limpide.
