Mormon’s Return to the Military
Nephite Decline and Downfall
Mormon goes back among the Nephites, and agrees to once again be their military leader—even so, Mormon feels hopeless about the fate of the Nephites.
The Nephites had relocated to a city called Jordan; the Lamanites attack, but the Nephites successfully repel them.
The Lamanites attack again, but the Nephites are again able to maintain the city of Jordan, as well as other cities they are occupying.
Many other cities are destroyed and burned by the Lamanites.
Five years later, the Lamanites attack again, and despite Nephite efforts, the Lamanites massacre them.
The Nephites begin to retreat, but the slower ones are ransacked by the Lamanites.
