Excerpt: 

Don't get bogged down in planning! This is the classic problem with tactical games: given the high stakes of combat, players will (understandably) try to plan for every last contingency, which can lead to sessions that are 3 hours of planning and discussion and one hour of action. I know... I ran other war RPGs for years and this was SOP - which is why The Regiment gives you tools to skip over all that planning and cut right to the beginning of the action.
