After seeing LOTR so many times and hearing a post (i.e. "Sauron is such a terrible strategist") I have decided to ask you what would you do differently if you were a commander in any of the MAJOR battles in Lord Of The Rings. Major means attacking fortresses and cities and any battle that involved more than 1,000 troops on each side.
Minas Tirith as Gandalf (according to the movie):
I wouldn't have all my troops in the courtyard holding a place they could not possibly hold. I would take advantage of my bows and rubble and have them shoot from buildings and the like. I'd take advantage of corridors and small passages. I'd seperate my men so they aren't all wiped out at once. I'd have my troops run around and do little skirmishes. Y' know unleash...heck.
