Williams tactic was the trick that when he couldn't fight Harolds army up hill, even though he had a better army, he pretenddeed to retreat. A similar trick had been used by Harold to defeat Harald Haadrada so he should have guessed it was a trick but he didn't... His army fell for it and this led to thier defeat for when they cased after the Normans, th eNormans swiftly turned round and killed them all.
