"A variation on the retreat and ambush stratagem uses the
Ess of Johan most effectively. First, send out a small group
of soldiers to confront the enemy and create the appearance
of being overwhelmed. When they retreat, the enemy will follow
to finish them off. Just as the pursuing force realizes it's
been led into a trap, employ the artifact to deny its escape."
