Not sure it is a new theory.  Just an observation that I think most people would make.  Look up any hill.  The crest is a single line.  Look down any gradual hill and you will see the full field below.

Consider this.  Many of the missed rounds fired in the Civil War were fired too high.  There was a reason why the commanding officers admonished their troops to: "fire low boys." 

When you are on the crest of a hill and fire high what do you hit?  The rows and rows of troops behind.  When you are going up the hill and you fire high what do you hit?  Nothing.  Or in the case of Gettysburg - you hit General Meade's headquarters - well behind the lines.
