This was definitely an “In deep analysis” and a very good one, props to you. But as someone said already, George doesn’t seems to be nor try to be, a great warfare writer. It’s always about the characters and the storyline for him. But I kinda love this thing of looking back and try to figure out where things went to shit, how little changes here and there would alter everything that happened. More son on the Wot5K, there’s so much that could happened different. Iron Maiden Live After Death T-Shirt There’s a part of me that wonders how much of this is me picking up on clues that George never imagined as clues, and yet that’s the fun of analysis.

And even if, say, GRRM never explicitly reveals how the Tyrell vanguard got into Stannis’ camp so easily, the idea that Stannis got myopic on the objective fits in a character context. Iron Maiden Live After Death T-Shirt Oh, if I had to bet I would say George imagined ever one of this clues in battles, I just think it’s a secondary aspect for him and so it’s not REALLY well done as the rest, it’s just to keep the books consistent and realistic. If you dive deep to analyze thoroughly it, you will find some holes in all the conflicts he wrote. Maybe he could do a better job, but most of us don’t really care about the nuances of a battle, just the overral structure is enough, the important thing is the characters and the outcome of it.

I think one of the underappreciated aspects of Stannis as a commander is his ability to inspire loyalty and discipline. For all he prattles on about how “no one loves me like they loved Robert :(” in ACOK, his men are consistently willing to go through hell in his name. Iron Maiden Live After Death T-Shirt And if you think this is limited to a few desperate ships trying to avoid wildfire, go read Sansa’s last ACOK chapter again. A large number of captured lords and knights are willing to curse Joffery to his face and refuse to bend the knee even under threat of death. Yet once again Stannis spends the beginning of ASOS focusing on the negative: Lord Celtigar bent the knee, boo hoo hoo, how sad. He won’t let himself see that people do genuinely support him.
