The battle could have played out a million different ways, though. It just sounds like you are assuming that the Knights of the Vales cavalry charge would steamroll through anything. In other words, saving Jon's men would mean losing more Knights of the Vale, so you're argument seems like splitting hairs.And Jon’s tactics led to what? Death of the last giant? Sansa told him to wait. Rickon was dead like she said . Had he showed patience how many would still be alive brother Aero?
Using Cavalry effectively is very difficult. And I don't see how you outflank Bolton without a sacrifice move. Especially when all he has to do is stand there because he's the one defending.
Not with the sacrifice move, that's for sure. But, again, I don't see how they were supposed to lure Bolton out. Waiting around isn't a tactic that's going to win it all for you. They had to attack at some point, and they would lose a lot of men regardless.Tactics aside, would Jon have won without the Vail? You know the answer to this brother.
