Ivashanko Posted November 4, 2021 Share Posted November 4, 2021 (edited) It's important to remember that GRRM is not a historian, a sociologist, or an expert in military theory. His worldbuilding, interesting though it is, breaks down pretty quickly. But that's okay. We put up with implausible worldbuilding because we are more interested in the story than realism. GRRM is clearly basing the Dothraki on Western ideas of the eastern horselords, even though the Dothraki themselves don't use the tactics of the Mongols or Huns. And my guess is they will be just as effective in battle even if their stratagems don't make a ton of sense.
