Mini-Quiz: 8. Variation in Tactics

by Ron Kurtus (revised 16 October 2016)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. What are some variations in plans that may be taken?

Certain roads must not be followed and commands that must not be obeyed

Certain villages may be plundered even if not in the plans

Don't plan to fail; just fail to plan

2. How can advantage and of disadvantage be blended together?

It allows both sides to win in a battle

You take advantage of their disadvantage

By changing your expectations and preparing for the unexpected

3. What is wrong with over-solicitude for your troops?

You may worry about them

They may not want you around during their free time

Nothing, as long as they are willing to fight

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Winning Competitions. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Tactics can vary with situation
