I must confess, for a moment there I thought he was a slice of ham...:-)
Was his tactic stealth? obvious aggression? defensive? Was it a country against another? A civil war? revolutionary activity?
Was the "it" a certain object? eg Trojan horse etc? Or was it a certain tactic?
Anything to do with tying the army to giant kites?

Is a particular chemical substance relevant? if so, is it an element? compound? solid? liquid? gas?
Is it to be used as part of the disguise?

Was the idea of the disguise to obscure them so that they would not be detected? or to make them look like something more dangerous and intimidating than mere humans?
