"No plan of operations extends with certainty beyond the first encounter with the enemy's main strength" -- Helmuth von Moltke the Elder, Prussian Chief of Staff under Bismark during the Franco Prussian war. I do not recall a similar paraphrase from Sun Wu but it has been some time since I read it.

comment How do I emphasize role-playing during combat?
From the one comment on my answer: Look at how anime does big battles. Something like Rurouni Kenshin, Fullmetal Alchemist, Cowboy Bebop, and Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex will have plenty of good examples of banter set around combat.
