Royal Military Excercise where an Young Cadet was given command of a platoon to test out what he has learned. His orders, to save his platoon anyway and everyway he can. Excerise start, the young LT was told that his position was no longer tenable and that his brigade has in fact collapsed. Nevertheless, the young LT proceeded with the mission as best he could. He divised 4 fall back position and 3 escape routes. But at the end, he lost his platoon. During eval, as part of course, he was asked what he did wrong. The young LT listed everything he thought he did wrong but when pressed, nothing he did individually nor combined was wrong. So, why did the platoon died? I did not surrender.
