Was it good strategy to gather the soldiers on Mount Tabor?

Judges 4:6 (ESV)

6 She sent and summoned Barak the son of Abinoam from Kedesh-naphtali and said to him, “Has not the LORD, the God of Israel, commanded you, ‘Go, gather your men at Mount Tabor, taking 10,000 from the people of Naphtali and the people of Zebulun.

Mount Tabor was a dome-shaped mountain, 1,843 feet above sea level, located at the northeast corner of the Jezreel Valley. It controlled one of the most important crossroads in the region. This command signals that God is not only calling the general; he also determines the strategy.1
