An army to the east and another to the west
That made his position in the middle very problematic
The command had told him to flee and save as many of his troops as he could

Couldn’t leave her family and friends to become at most a footnote in history
Knowing it was futile, he gave the order to charge. Maybe it would give them enough time to escape.
