* The Polish WW2 series ''Czterej pancerni i pies'' had this as a recurring plot device. The titular tank crew would find themselves behind enemy lines either because an enemy counterattack managed to cut off their position or because their mission was to move around the enemy and attack them from behind.

* Parodied in ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''. The "Ypres 14" sketch had a group of WorldWarOne British soldiers trapped behind German lines. Since there were five of them and only rations for four, they had to decide who would stay behind and "take the other way out" (commit suicide rather than be captured).

* Happens near the end of the UsefulNotes/WorldWarI serial ''ComicBook/GoldenEyesAndHerHeroBill'', when the heroine Golden Eyes' ambulance is shelled and she is captured by a German officer. He takes her back to the German field camp (though it's remarked to be within sight of the front line) as a prisoner, though as [[CaptiveDate one he hasn't reported]].

* This is the basis of the 28th Stratagem: to lure the enemy into dangerous terrain, cut off his support lines, and take away the ladder once he has ascended to the roof. The consequence is that if he somehow manages to fight through your forces and clear the lines, he will avoid the roof on his next trip.
