The first battle on these lands
is indicative of broad military organization, which is, built on a definite
tactic plan. It is the division of the whole Galic forces into two and
it separate thrust from the territories, which were captured.
The Thracians deeply disorganized
the enemy with its unwonted acts. They searched for the sudden strike;
they wanted to surprise the enemy. There is a suggestion that Sitalk during
his march against the Peony wanted to surprise the enemy when he ordered
a cutting in the forest to be forced for the passing of the army.
Ksenofontus also informed
about the knowledge of Sevt II for organization and tactic in the battle
especially in the aggressive and surprising acts in the strongly- cut place.
They put in touch with signals and passwords. They attacked with frightful
yells and noise of sabrerattling. This opens another tactic- to have a
control over the psychic of the enemy.
The night battles were unknown
to the other peoples, which were used to the ostentation of the day fights.
The Thracians made night marches, which continued to battles. The night
fight was a kind of surprise to the enemy and that is why they were defined
as barbars, meaning that they did not use properly the norms in the fight
they wanted to catch the surprise and the victory. The Tinny were especially
good at the night fights. They used leaders - spies.
They flexibly played according
to the place and time. They were cunning, made the enemy do to close places,
where it was easy to be battled. Some times they used surprising groups
and then advanced forward.
