I meant to respond to this awhile ago. I can accept that this approach works for you and for your mod, but it doesn't sound like very good tactics in general. I'd expect a rather high casualty rate if soldiers fought this way. It seems more appropriate to:
Identify the greatest threat.
Determine its most vulnerable location, and attack from there.
Always leave yourself a way out (i.e. retreat path).
