Fun clip of excellent audio and visual quality.

However, Goliath was a truly terrible strategist. He attacked in broad daylight, and his men did not even have shields to protect themselves from archers on the city walls.

Also, it is difficult to see how cavalry can successfully attack a walled city. Relevant techniques would include siege towers, ladders, tunneling to undermine its walls, and large catapults.
