Episode 30: The Importance of Where

As a commander, Frederick was daring and dynamic. As an author, he was methodical and thorough. After a brief recap of how to handle armies of different sizes, the hosts of TAOW then move into a larger exploration of location before a deeper examination of oblique tactics. Any strategy must adapt to the shape of the field, therefore the amount and type of terrain are paramount considerations. To top it off, for the battle report this week, Malark and Thumbs take a look at an unexpected feather in Frederick's cap.

Episode 30: The Importance of Where

Episode 29: Surprise and Prevention

A siege is a messy business for all sides involved. Brutal close-quarters fighting and high casualty rates on both sides make the prospect a daunting one, regardless of whether attacking or defending. The tactics for these two roles differ greatly even though they fight the same battle. The attacker wants to end it quickly and with as little loss of life as possible. The defender wants to hold out and delay, hoping to break their assailant by force or nerves. In this episode, Thumbs and Malark examine what it takes to storm fixed positions of any sort, as well as what is required if you are called to defend them.

Episode 29: Surprise and Prevention

Episode 28: Danger Zone

No plan survives the first encounter with the enemy, and yet there must be a purpose to a battle to give it structure. Whether we be attacking or defending, all of our movements must be done with certainty and forethought, as armies can be large and ungainly things. Yet within this maneuver, there is peril, for when we move against the enemy we often leave ourselves vulnerable. In this episode, we explore movement with a purpose when considered against the concept of the "River" and the ever present danger zones lurking on the field.

Episode 27: Talents, Ruses, and Stratagems

Every successful general in history knows the art of presentation. Your teammates look to you for not only a plan of battle, but also for their morale center and personal guidance. To this end, a general must learn to manage their emotions so they are not servile to them. For when the time comes, a cool head prevails in the thick of combat, and only one lucid in mind can think of the ideal plan required to win the day. Join us this week as we look at the talents required of a general and the ruses and stratagems open to them.

Episode 27: Talents, Ruses, and Stratagems

Episode 26: Coup D'Oeil

Every precious second lost to deliberation in battle is a second too long. All warfare, whether in games or real life, depends on quick decisive action to carry the day. But when so much information is constantly flowing and changing all around the battlefield, how does a commander filter out the non-essential and focus on pursuing that which matters most? When so much is at stake and the blood-price is high, how does one quiet the noise of one's mind in order to know the correct course of action? To understand how we do this, we must understand the concept of Coup D'Oeil, or "a glance that takes in a comprehensive view". To master this concept, we must combine detailed knowledge of the country with the will to pursue the essential.

Episode 25: Where The Heart Is

Once again, we're talking about the most important aspect of actual warfare: logistics. Moving your army, keeping it supplied, and making sure it can use all advantages are just some of the challenges that Frederick addresses in his method. In this episode, we look at some of the ways you can do this correctly... and one way that it all went horribly wrong.

When it comes to planning a war, few have a more methodical approach than Frederick the Great. While none of us are invading Bohemia any time soon, his cool logic can be applied to a wide array of situations.

Episode 22: Of Rath and Brotherhood

The world of physical wargaming is vast, with many different ideas on self-improvement and community involvement. In this episode, we examine two groups that have a similar history and philosophy when it comes to development. Malark goes solo to look into what makes the Brotherhood of the Falcon and the realm of Rath function as well as they have for so long. With an emphasis on confraternity and equal effort, there are many positive lessons to learn from these closely entwined groups.
