    Re: surrender to

    Hi

    I'm not sure. For example, he surrendered to the fight for self-survival and he doesn't care any more ...

    Thanks

    You surrender to an enemy. You could surrender to fate.
    You don't surrender to a fight or a battle, etc. You surrender to what you have been fighting.

    Yes, he could surrender to everything.
