Chapter

Second part : 5 : 3

Observed lessons

  • When they have every advantage, then force alone is not enough to defeat them.
  • Diplomacy and other persuasion may be enough to settle differences.
  • Confuse them by sending units in various different directions.
  • A coordinated method is to attack from all directions at once.
  • If they run away, do not chase them.

Discussion

Fighting a stronger force requires guile and strategy. History is full of examples where this has been successful. It is also full of examples of foolhardiness, where simple bravery and ferocity was not the answer. A good approach is to divide and conquer, for example by tempting out and defeating small units. Other methods include use of guerrilla methods or deceiving them about your actual forces.
