That's not a plothole, that's just shatty writing. Kishi has taken many of his more competent characters and just shat on their knowledge, understanding, and comprehension of battle. Because if things played out the way they were supposed to, the alliance would be using their last dying breaths not because of Obito or Madara, but because of Kabuto and his edos. Madara handled the kages, Obito was dealing with Naruto and co., meanwhile the Zetsus and edos should have wiped out the vast majority of the alliance forces.
