WAR ELEPHANTS

I had an interesting idea to include in my fantasy series. What if there were war elephants in the upcoming battles? It is an ingenious tactic that was used in India, Asia, and even Greece. The reason for this is because unlike horse cavalry, elephant’s charge cannot be easily stopped by infantry because of their size, strength, and durability. Also, the fear of facing something so big and powerful would be an effective use of psychological warfare. When the main character begins his conquest, his armies will use war elephants to great effect.
