Dude, we’re shooting the shit about a TV show with dragons, tits and magic.
Yes, Clausewitz said 4:1.
Yes it’s highly situational.
From a military standpoint almost everything depicted on the series has been idiotic.
Stannis vs wildlings: wildlings staying inside the tree line would have negated Stannis’ heavy cavalry charge.
Dothraki vs Lannister loot train: Lannisters fought with the river behind them. Where were their scouts? Had they fought on the other side of the river bank the river would have stalled out the Dothraki cavalry.
Battle of the Bastards was too stupid to put into words.
The writers aren’t writing accurate conflict - they are creating set pieces to create drama and drive the story.
This is so basic it’s taught to aspiring screen writers in books like Save the Cat!
