"Route to the sea is a military tactician's reference to your last last hope. Military leaders invading a foreign land had to have a rear guard protecting your route to the sea. If you didn't have a rear guard or your rear guard was defeated you would be in an untenable position. You have to either win outright or face being surrounded and overwhelmed."
