Alexander did that regularly during his campaigns, especially after Gaugamela.

Also, Parmenion was still defeated by Memnon and forced back to the coast. 10 000 Macedonians did not help Parmenion and he only managed to retain few cities. So, you certainly would be defeated.
The other conclusion would be that Parmenion wasn;t very good! :)
