    I've seen it allot in my games but, for some reason, never considered asking it. So, what is a flanking bonus, how much is it, does it stack, etc?

    A flanking bonus is applied for each unit you have within melee range of the enemy unit, other than the unit you wish to attack with.

    Which is to say that if you have two warriors next to the enemy unit and you are attacking it with a third warrior, you will receive a 20% flanking bonus to the attack.

    Yes, it stacks and it's 10% per stack.

    War is all about flanking. I love this bonus.

    it also works defensively.

    so you get +10%/unit sitting beside the unit (of yours) getting attacked.

    Is this only with Discipline, or does that add to it?

    Discipline bonus is different from Flanking bonus. Both can stack though.
