"At the onset of a campaign, we must carefully consider whether advancing is the best strategy. Once the decision has been made and the attack is launched, the decision has to be maintained until it's final consequences. A retreat will always discourage the troops, no matter how well the maneuver, since the failure of one army is the victory of another. Retreats also bear a heavier cost in terms of caualties and material than even the most cruel confrontations. In confrontation, the enemy will suffer similar or equal loss; but in retreat, our losses will far surpass those of our opponent." Napolen Bonapart
