|Pompey made the foolish move of heading toward Greece as we know. What should he have done.
If I was Pompey, I would of headed for Spain, then I would march on Gaul, forcing Caesar out of Italy. When he doesnt this I land on the south of Italy and catch Caesar in a pincer. However, since Caesar is one of the greatest commanders of all time, he may have been able to see this since I (as Pompey) would be heading for Gaul, a loyal area to Caesar and being where his largest concentration of troops are. Therefore Caesar may go either directly for Spain, or Greece. Thereby cutting off strategic areas to me (Pompey again). If he heads for Spain, my leigons would give him hell, therefore making it counter-productive to his ends. So probably he would faint a counter attack into Gaul and then go for Greece, an area lightly defended. Therefore, not seeing a sizeable counter attack, I will march unto Rome. However, the units he has in Gaul, being not completely destroyed would hit me from the rear, then I pull my trap with marching remaining units in Spain to suprise the Caesar Leigons. He may then march what is in reserve of his armies out of Gaul, but then it will be too late. Then this would force Caesar out of Greece. Then my forces from North Africa, by ship, would land in the South of Italy, totaly catching Caesar off guard with his forces in a poor position with him surrounded by my troops.
