In The Last Jedi,
Poe is seen arguing with Leia about wanting to destroy the Dreadnought - neither of them really win the argument. Then he says "Bring the bombs" and the whole bombing fleet starts advancing, as though they had already been launched.
Afterwards, Poe seems to take the blame for every loss they experienced.
Isn't General Organa in command? Doesn't that make her responsible for a decision like
launching the bombing fleet to begin with?
I'd prefer in-universe answers, but I'll happily accept answers that approach this from the perspective of "real-world military". (like if there's some exception to the chain of command when someone is a "lead pilot")
