Sorry, Jimmy, I don't know t actual battle, but Napoleon was famous for inspiring his troops, n eliminating options for retreat, this was one of his most inspiring methods used in battle. It was used all t time only when he felt inspired. We study in business to secure success.<quoted text>
Burn all ships like Napoleon did, so therefore no one is going anywhere, than it's a fight to t death.
Upon landing ashore they were met w sure defeat, the enemy was far more numerous than expected, rather than retreat he had his men burn t ships to eliminate t option of retreat. It was said they had to win coz there was no way out there. It inspired t hell out his men thinking if we don't win, we will die here n never see our families again, certainly they won.
