Trickster Ambush! War Generals In Hiding,vol.1

TricksterAmbushWarGeneralsInHidingvol1 Photo Welcome to home of the world's most brilliant generals...they've caught wind of your scent, going immediately into hiding. It's high time I trained you to hunt them down, starting with a drill! I see you're chomping down at the bit. But, this takes strategy! This ain't the movies! Just as a brilliant mind must know what his/her target looking for before striking, so you, too, must stake your man (or woman). Look through the answer choices first... they are your 'scents'...and your 'coordinates'. Then expose them.

A general lies in waiting below. Can you find him first?

Drill# 8.

Have you seen the 'Da' video yet? This 1988 movie, starring Martin Sheen, William Hickley, and Barnard Hughes, depicts Irish playwright Hugh Leonard and his relationship with Da, his father. Tony Award winner Barnard Hughes reprised his role from the Broadway play. It earned a 70% 'Fresh' rating, according to Rotten Tomatoes. Critic Roger Ebert gave the movie version three out of four stars.

However, the play itself won many awards, among them the 1978 Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Actor in Play, Best Featured Actor in a Play, Best Direction of a Play, and many more from other media.

a) Cymric poet turned rebel and ultimately warrior
b) by God's will, became Judah's commander, king, & a writer of Psalms
c) cruel Visigoth called the 'Scourge of God'
d) servant under Richard 'LionHeart', this Count of Mortain succeeded him
e) None of these

Answer: David
The choice that works:

After looking through the choices FIRST, then for hidden name SECOND,
Your deduction would lead you to conclude b) by God's will, became Judah's commander, king, & a writer of Psalms' as your best answer.

They've spent decades mastering strategy in combat...emerging victoriously...evading capture...
They're the best at what they do. They're war generals.

Now find them hidden in paragraph thickets... before they ambush you!
