A Complete Analysis of Robb Stark as a Military Commander

Wars and Politics of Ice and Fire

“Battles,” muttered Robb as he led her out beneath the trees. “I have won every battle, yet somehow I’m losing the war.” – Robb Stark, ASOS, Chapter 14, Catelyn II

Introduction

First, two bald statements to kick this post off:

  • Robb Stark was the greatest tactician during the War of the Five Kings.

and

  • Robb Stark was the worst strategist of the War of the Five Kings. (Though Balon Greyjoy gives Robb a run for his money for worst strategist.)

On the face of it, these two statements contradict each other, but in these posts, I will attempt to defend both of these statements with textual evidence and some non-technical references to military strategy.
