Protect / Defend

Has anyone got the definition for these Mission verbs please? (if they are indeed Mission verbs).

I am not in a position to be looking them up myself. Many thanks.
Defend: To defeat or deter a threat, to provide circumstances for offensive action. Depending on what size formation/unit is defending, defence can include delay, hold, deny and atack.
Sadly (or not...), there's no 'protect' in SOHB. The closest is 'Guard', as opposed to 'Screen'.

Guard: To protect a force by fighting to gain time, while also observing and reporting info.

I'll just get me coat.
