He seems to have the same philosophy of battle planning: Plans fail, then you pick up with new plans and go with them.

Yes, but numbers aren't everything. Ansom is the highest level unit we're aware of. If Sammy or another unit was higher level, this should have been hinted at, at least. Some kind of touting of their past battle glories, whatever. Ansom we know has been in many fights, and has apparently won them all. With one exception, of course.
One thing which struck me: "Multiple Casters?" Jack, and who else? Multiple implies more than two, otherwise it's just as easy to say two and be done with it. Maggy is at GK. Sizemore? When was the last time we saw him? In Page 13, when Parson was calculating Wanda's odds, he specifically factored in Jack's presence, but made no mention of Sizemore. That would be odd, were Sizemore with the field units.
