In military battles, having clear lines of communications coupled with clear real time intelligence always give you the upper hand. Unit formations, terrain, weather, logistics, location, and situations are relayed among units and to their command posts.

In conventional warfare, one of the first things attacked before a full scale force on force battle happens is communications.
