Re: Real Realistic attack, really...

Much thought I have put in into thinking about the situation. DaveO, you are right; in hindsight, the poor soldier is extremely brave but not very bright. I believe he may have just barge in without tactically thinking about the whole situation. In your previous post you mention about escaping and fighting not to win but rather not to lose. I can relate that that the piece of advice given by you is so very applicable. I believe the soldier may have been acted a little to bravado, he just did not think about his escape/retreat route.
