…Westeros War.

Old… but still interesting to read…

"With the seventh season of HBO's Game of Thrones at its halfway point, Westeros is at war yet again. In the last two episodes (episodes 3 and 4), the forces aligned with Daenerys Targaryen and Cersei Lannister have met upon the fields (and seas) of battle at last. Things have not gone entirely according to plan for either side.

In fact things have gone so wrong, so fast that I thought it might be time to convene the Ars Technica Board of Fictional Military Historic Analysis—with its charter members, Jon Nichols and Steve Skaggs, two special operations professionals now in the private sector—in order to dive in on the biggest blunders and curious command decisions from both sides.

The short of it? If we were advising Daenerys' side, we'd be making some recommendations on changes to her command staff… and maybe feeding some of her current leadership to those dragons…."

"Military analysis"?

What for? All tactics are calculated by cameramen, special effects and directors for dramatic effect and CGI quotient.

Yes, it's a load of old cobblers as far as accuracy goes, so why bother?
