Don't give up too early

4. Do not give up too early!!!

During World War II, the fall or battle of Singapore (1942) when the Allied forces, led by British officers, surrendered to the Japanese military forces is an interesting study in "giving in" too early. Some post-war analysis has shown that the invading Japanese were at the limit of their supply lines and only had a few hours of ammunition left. In other words, if the Allied forces had counter-attacked and/or maintained their defensive positions, they could have defeated the invading Japanese. As a result of this surrender, around 80,000 Allied troops (mostly British) became prisoners of war; it was the largest surrender of British-led military personnel in history. (Wikipedia, 2016c)
