That's what I mean by Determined. If you've made a conscious derision to lay your life down for something you aren't going to give up to quickly or easily.
When I was in the service we had some some terrorist dig in so hard that the only way to get them out was air support. They just would not budge we could sit there for hours and pick off the stupid ones and lob Mortars at them Until we got bored or ran out of mortars. But they just would not surrender the cave no matter what even if there wass nothing in the cave.
