A reembarkation of the expedition corps is possible only when the

battle fleet is able to prevent attack from the sea. In the event of

defeat on land, reembarkation is not absolutely impossible, for if

good order is maintained the improvised defenses of the landing sites,

with the help of the fleet, will sufficiently delay the pursuers. If

the reembarking must take place from some other point, preparations

for its defense must be made in advance. When the reembarkation is

done with the aim in view of attacking at another place, the rules as

explained in the chapter on "Embarkation" must be adhered to. For

such an operation, more time is essential, and pressure of the enemy

should not be permitted to interfere with its management.
