Iron Pillar

Iron Pillar

Iron Pillar was a Crane Battlefield Formation formed by two to three ranks of heavily armored soldiers, but with only one rank of the formation engaging the enemy at a time, and periodically the front rank fell back behind the rest, being replaced with fresh troops. It was extremely effective at holding ground or at keeping an enemy army's attention while other units moved into position for a flank attack. [1]
