Response to Jim Lane (Original post)

37. Well, why not wait a few weeks more than a few?

Or a few weeks more than that?

The longer you wait, the longer your troops are at risk, and your supplies are depleted (armies don't just stop to see if the enemy will surrender). If you don't have reasonable intelligence that a surrender might be possible, how many of your own troops will you sacrifice?
