How do you gain an advantage in battle when you are outnumbered? Here is one strategy:

When they went into battle, they would strip naked and dash at their enemies dressed in nothing but sandals and their fancy necklaces. They howled as if possessed by demons, their shrieks augmented by loud bagpipes. -Ryan Hackney, Amy Hackney Blackwell, Garland Kimmer, 101 Things You Didn’t Know About Irish History: The People, Places, Culture, and Tradition of the Emerald Isle
