“It is madness to attempt to hold. In the first place the troops cannot do it and in the second place if they do not retreat they will be destroyed. I repeat that this order be rescinded or that you find someone else.”
Synopsis : October 22nd, 3028 : System – Northwind : After the general retreat into the mountains, the unit is faced with one more company of mixed armor and Mechs that is trying to follow along and attack the stragglers in the retreat. Under orders to hold until recalled, the unit fights back in a worsening condition, pulling back several of their worst case units, and digging in.
In the end, they encounter some of the units who slipped into the city to do damage, and destroy enough of the attackers to hold their position. With the last retreat of Team Banzai’s forces, Major Bradley, the highest surviving local commander orders a full retreat before the rest of the attackers can follow them into their mountain refuges. The Dingoes destroy what they can, and sabotage the rods to limit pursuit, wondering aloud about the brutal fighting of the Inner Sphere Houses.
