1) Don’t do what your enemy is prepared for.
Frontal assaults against prepared defenses are stupid.
Almost all successful attacks have hit enemies from the rear, from the flank, or anywhere it is not expected. Do not fight fair.
2) Always attack from multiple angles
One big mess of soldiers charging forward is not strategic. Split your forces and hit the enemy from multiple fronts.
3) Don’t focus on the fight. Focus on the end goal and you may not need to fight.
Realize that war is no one’s end goal. If you can break the enemy’s will or ability to fight, and you can win without conflict. Think about the politics of situation.
