Dragonte and AZURE
4:38am - 23/Jun/2015
A group of us completed the last week of the Camino de Santiago together. In the group was a friend, Lorne Fisher, who went on later to complete the whole Camino along the French Way. There he encountered the dragonte strategy of the Templars. Essentially the strategy, which may be part of human DNA, was to retreat along a previously established known trail that ensured the exhaustion of the attacker before entrapment and destruction of the attacker at the steepest part of the trail. Now those of us old enough to remember the ‘honey pot’ strategy of retaining the attacker/hacker long enough to reverse engineer the attacker’s location might think awhile on this strategy for AZURE. Both castles that have an in depth defense perimeter and height advantage don’t necessarily think offense but think defense. A retreat to a more favourable position with an attack turnaround might prove interesting as a security strategy.
