>now when enemy is our heartland and on the steps of one of the two largest cities of our country we should finally give general battle.
>get wrecked, retreat from battlefield, abandon your wounded on the battlefield
>enemy now can take city
>not so fast my friend - city's governor burning it to the ground, wounded and sick get roasted.
>enemy takes the city, it is worthless now
>enemy must retreat form this pile of ashes because winter is coming and other side will not surrender.
>use scorched earth tactics
>use rat tactics - raid supply train and separated weak units.

>your country is small and has ten times smaller population than enemy's country/
>you are 21 years old, you were given all authority to save the country
>you follow a simple strategy: "We can die in the last ditch"
>but enemy's army is too powerful and goes through your country heart and only one day away from your biggest city
>ok, you cut the dikes, sea rolling in and the city previously almost defenseless, now became and island
>meantime, you persuade other countries to help you by the argument, that your enemy is threat to all of them and they are impressed even more that your tiny country successfully resisting this war machine
