You are indeed misquoting.  I was describing rather than crediting.

The reason Atlantian fencers won that Sea War so convincingly was that we
had a PLAN that worked and the Trimarians didn't.  We were first asked to
form triads and work out individual tactics an hour or two before the
battle.  The battle plan consiting of a front line to hold the Trimarians
in place, a main attack on the left, and two reserve units to plug any
break in the front line and support the attack.

I give full credit to Lord Giacomo for both the idea of triads and the
battle plan that day. I will leave it to him to reveal the source of his
inspiration. Since that day Atlantian fencers have continue to train in
triads and continue to do well in melee combat.
