Indeed

Raglan needed to be clear, Nolan needed to understand it and deliver it correctly and Cardigan had to make it happen

A good example of the Duke of Cambridge's influence, as per his famous comment "Brains? I don't believe in brains. You haven't any, I know, sir" 0 this from the Commander in Chief of the British army as opposed to von Seydlitz "After the battle the king can do what he likes with my head, but during the battle will he please allow me to use it"
