I think the objections to the tactics are very basic objections: light calvary doesn't charge into the unknown, why have your ballistics in front of your infantry, if fire is your best defense, why aren't you using more of it, why didn't you have more soldiers/archers insider the castle, why weren't they using basic castle defenses such as oil and fire over the walls?, why not line the walls with dragonglass spikes, why not use the dragons at least to help the Dothraki? You don't have to be a military brain to understand why this is all really stupid.
I understand that they had an ending in mind which meant a decimation of the armies and a sole person killing the NK when all looked lost but that is really a standard trope and they went for the typical type of ending. I get that it is manipulation but GoT was supposed to be something better than that and now it is standard stuff.
Lastly, adpayne, I am shocked and stunned that you were not taught how to fight the dead in the military. Our forces are vulnerable to the zombie apocalypse? Now I'm not going to sleep at night.
