What was William the Conqueror's trick to get the saxsons to retreat?

During the Battle of Hastings William's army (Normans) was at a standstill as Harold's army (English) had a strong shield wall witch was almost impossible to break. Instead William had a plan, find out there weakness! On two occasions his left wing had broken and the English chased after it. When the Normans regained control the English barely made it back to their own line in time to reform the shield wall. Observing this, William ordered an acted retreat to draw the English out yet again and this time catch them in the open. He used this tactic to successfully perform this 3 times. This was his trick.

Did William win because Harold was rushed into battle?

suThere's lots of reasons why William won:1. He was prepared and had even sectioned his army into categories: Archers at the front, foot soldiers in the middle and the cavalry at the back.2. His army was well fed and healthy, whereas Harold's army was forced to march 307 miles south from Stamford Bridge after defeating the Vikings.3. William was also very lucky, the day his army set sail to cross the channel; the wind changed and blew them to Britain much quicker. He was lucky to arrive at Hastings first and prepare even more.4. He was a good leader. He encouraged his soldiers to march up Tenlac Hill and attack the Saxons. He and his army tricked the Saxons by pretending to surrender (Trick of Retreating) and headed back to their ships. However, the Saxons were a bit full of themselves so they broke their formation and tried to chase the Normans away. Big mistake. They were slaughtered.Then King Harold of England died, supposedly by an arrow through his eye.
