1,a –Transport problems cause the abandonment of most of the equipment and supplies as people were exhausted and as a result couldn’t take this ones forward.

d-I find more convincing source E because traveling so hard in so bad conditions and without food is what really destroys the army. I also support source E because I don’t think the cool...
