Now that the offensive failed, the question arose of how to get people from the slope. Many retreated down severely shelled, barely got out of boulders, others remained in their places - one of hope inherent soldiers that can win in the end, they will smile and others simply because they lie behind the rocks, of course, safer, than cross sweep the space below. That part of the soldiers that have gone down, it seems, had no idea how many friends left on the hill, and as the distance between those who backed and those who did not, gradually increased, melting hope of their reunion. Everyone who was on the side, was taken prisoner. The rest gathered in one and a half kilometers from the surprise attack and began an organized retreat to Molteno.
