I daresay that's not an easy decision for Harry, but it's one I can see him making. In some ways, it's not that different from Horatius at the Bridge or the captain of the US submarine in the Pacific in WW II that ordered his sub to submerge under attack, even though he was wounded and trapped on the exposed bridge. It's a poignant and painful one, but I can see where the alternatives would be considered worse by the one making the decisions.
Bravo for another excellent chapter.
