*** Even the Ultramarines, which hold it as holy writ, are aware that it doesn't cover every situation, or that some unconventional solutions may be required, and that a commander has to use his best judgement in many situations.

*** But not for nothing is Tacticus considered history's greatest warlord, and the man who lent his name to the art of large-scale combat. On the same subject, he notes that if you are ''not'' the one inside, then let them ''stay'' there.
*** Another anecdote concerns Genua (a city pretty much on the opposite side of the continent from Ankh-Morpork) inviting General Tacticus to become their new king. He accepts, and, upon taking the throne, reviews their stategic situation and decides to promptly declare war on their most dangerous enemy... Ankh-Morpork.

* In Creator/DavidGemmell's ''The First Chronicles of Druss the Legend'' the Ventrians have a highly formalized way of making war, based on an ancient treatise. So slavishly do they adhere to this text that the defenders of a hotly contested city leave the walls after the fourth attack in one day because the book says that launching more than four attacks in a day should be avoided as it is bad for morale and as a result no Ventrian general would presume to launch a fifth attack.

* Quite a few BoardGames and CardGames have extensive literature on strategy, of which by far the largest (at least in North America) are TabletopGame/{{Chess}}, {{bridge}}, and {{poker}}.
* Doyle Brunson's ''Super System'' and its sequel are {{Poker}}'s traditional BigBookOfWar. Its advice is typically considered out-of-date these days, leaving the title up for grabs. ''Phil Gordon's Little Green Book'' and Daniel Negreanu's ''Power Hold'Em Strategy'' are two contenders. ''Caro's Book of Poker Tells'' is another classic, if more specialized.

** One of Guderian's self-acclaimed foremost influences, Basil Liddell-Hart, has quite the archive on armoured theory, currently in the possession of King's College London. Widely regarded as one of the greatest exponents of mechanisation, he was a driving force in helping to push Britain towards preparing for World War Two.
* Britain's National Archives also retains the military pamphlets of CIGS, the Imperial General Staff, which form their own Little Archive of War, insofar as they cover the stratagems and tactics of handling various military units in the field dating back over a century.
