English term or phrase: right uppercut
"Let us imagine, then, that Moltke had not only managed to restrain himself after Morhange but, at the last moment had decided not to send the two corps eastward. What might have happened next? Kluck's reinforced progress continues. The forts of Verdun are surrounded - that nearly did happen at the beginning of September - and neutralized. Rheims falls - it actually was occupied briefly. And now the German center armies turn to meet Kluck's right uppercut. Moltke gets his Cannae after all. The chances are that the truly decisive battle of the war might have been fought in the Seine Valley, southeast of Paris, perhaps in the gently wooded region around Fontainebleau, so favored by generations of French artists. The scenic oils this time would have been painted by Germans."

Upercutul de dreapta al lui Kluck??
Upercut = (la box) Lovitură executată, mai ales sub bărbie, prin mişcarea mâinii de jos în sus. /
