This was an extremely difficult time. I made the choice to leave a great many men and women to their deaths, but being fair to myself and our group, I doubt very highly there was very much else we could have been expected to do.
I can take solace in the fact that I went back to save a small number of them, but then I sent them to their likely deaths, trying to secure the hanger and shuttles.
I did what I had to do. It was the only real choice to make.
That’s what I tell myself at any rate.
