I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'will' is the definition.

'have a try at capturing the soldiers' is the wordplay.
'have a try' becomes 'test' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'capturing' is an insertion indicator.
'the soldiers' becomes 'men' (men can mean a group of soldiers).
'at' going around 'men' is 'ament'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for testament that I've seen before include "with 1a [NEW] where is Mark?" , "Biblical division" , "Will - covenant" , "document" , "Will or solemn declaration" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
