What ancient army burned their boats before going into battle?
In battle, the ancient Greeks established a well-deserved reputation for bravery, discipline, and determination. They were successful because they were well trained, well lead, and most of all, well motivated. The Greeks were master motivators who understood how to instill commitment and prepare their soldiers for victory. To infuse their army with a spirit of commitment, the moment they landed on the enemy's shore, the Greek commanders would give the order to "burn the boats." Imagine the tremendous psychological impact on the soldiers as they watched their boats being set to the torch. There was no turning back. Once their boats were burned, they realized that the only way they were going home was through victory.

Yes, normally to Ares, god of war, Athena godess of wisdom, or Nike godess of victory.
if the boat turns toward the dock without going upstream, it will miss it's mark because the current is pushing the boat downstream.
If you're not signing up for the Delayed Entry Programme, you'll go on the next available ship date. In DEP, it can be for up to 365 days.
Never! sadly! I´m still on the run too! If they catch awol personel they´ll have you sent back to camp and then charged and nicked! It´s the only thing they can legal…ly do, of course they can beat you to an inch of your life and they´ll get away with that! They don´t care about soldiers who want to leave they´ll just wait till you hang yourself. keep running it´s the only option! Dealing with the Army is the same as dealing with the Mob there´s no forgiveness or compassion, only payback. Make desertion punishable by death and no one will join the Army! What on earth did i join the army for? - To protect everything i hate!

The US Civil War happened for many reasons, though probably the biggest was the issue of slavery. When President Lincoln signed into law the Emancipation Proclamation, souther…n plantation owners basically panicked, thinking that they could not operate without slave labor. Other claimed issues included disagreement over where state laws should supersede federal laws and vice-versa. The southern states banded together to form The Confederate States of America, and tried to secede from the union (United States of America). The northern states believed that we should remain a whole nation, the south disagreed, and so there was war. It was a terrible time for our nation. Families were torn apart, brothers shooting brothers, fathers and sons on different sides. The south was ravaged by cannon-fire, as were parts of the north. Thankfully the nation survived, and hopefully we've learned from our mistake.

William DID burn his boats, which meant that none of his men could retreat, which meant there was no going back.
Because the Greek Civilization was based on the Aegean Sea, to navigate and explore the surrounding areas, they built boats.
