I imagine her grin grow wider as she delivers the killing blow. Perhaps an idea to include in the scene? :)
This charging scene is so cool! I feel like I know exactly where people are, what they are doing, and what the goal is, which can be tough when writing about hectic battle scenes.
cut the life/never truly believed they would die: it's turns of phrase and observations like these that you work in so casually, which I admire!

:( Damn what a epicly heroic but tragic way to start off the story. I'm guessing this is like a scene from long ago that serves to set up the story?

I like the "named in life, nameless in death", actually, I like the whole line too. :D

This was a powerful opening chapter, the tense atmosphere almost felt real and it flowed seamlessly, nothing feeling out of place or forced.
