The allies knew that it was going to be a risky process trying to defeat Hitler but they knew that in order to have a successful operation they would have to do the unexpected. I admire their courage and confidence as they went about this. In Sun Tzu’s, The Art of War there is a chapter titled, “Attack by Fire”. After reading this, I was able to capture some similar methods from Patton’s Ghost Army.
If a soldier chose to enter a war knowing it was unjust, that soldier could be held accountable for his actions. In cases, a soldier used to be not at fault for a leader not informing his nation of his intentions nor at fault for not being able to find information to discredit the morality of war.

In spite of being surprised by Darius ' strategic tactics, Alexander showed cleverness of mind by having his army arrive at the battlefield before the enemy had a chance to prepare their defenses or tactical
It is better to be punishing than kind. Machiavelli explains that cruelty can be well-thought-out if taken in one stab, the wicked deeds executed all at once, made essential for survival. Machiavelli argues, “We may add this note that when a prince takes a new state, he should calculate the sum of all the injuries he will have to do, and do them all at once, so as not to have to do new ones every day; simply by not repeating them, he will then be able to reassure people, and win them over to his side with benefits.” It is better to not make preserving them would be against one 's benefits.

This democratic leadership style ignites Oedipus’ yearning to save his people.

Free play, everyday, working hard in the battle room, under Ender’s direction. They would learn things from the armies, from the battles Ender would see,” (85). When he practiced with the launchies, the launchies were transfigure into better soldiers than they were before.

In words of strengths, the speech displayed the level of certitude vital in fight rhetoric. Seizing a state to fight and such a decision demands certainty, and the Head clarified such certainty across his address.
