Beginner question, what is the Niemann Attack?

Sort:
SpiciestRamenNoodles

From what I understand, white plays attack moves and black plays defense moves like the King's Indian Attack and the King's Indian Defense. However, I keep seeing comments made about a Niemann's Attack and I can't find it in my research.

I am sure it starts with 1. c4, but where does it go from there?

The Niemann attack is when you cheat on the first move and the last move

And all the moves in between.
