9.37

Chapter: The Army on the March 9.37

Translation:

To begin by bluster, but afterwards to take fright at the enemy’s numbers, shows a supreme lack of intelligence.

Commentary

Intelligence is at the heart of a good campaign. With real knowledge you can plan effectively.

Without knowledge some pretend to have it and make a show. When the army later finds they were wrong, this can cause great surprise, fear and disarray.
