I think you are using "perception" the same way that Napoleon used the term "coup d'oeuil" or the ability to view a battlefield and quickly make the right decision on a course of action.

I would put this into the broader "tactics" quality.  Perhaps it should be on its own.

I think politics refers to relations with civilian authorities.  Unfortunately, we saw many instances of politics being fought out within armies.  That was not a good quality.  An army properly motivated and organized with subordinates given responsibility should not have internal politics.  In the case of the great generals internal politics were minimized.
