I have no idea where to start this room. I feel like I need the soldier to stab at least one giant on both sides, but I can't make that happen without either A) Guard dies, or B) Golem is killed on a trapdoor.

How can you get the soldier to not do one of those things?

I had more luck blocking him with my sword than with my body. It also helps to summon him with the horn while facing north so that he faces north when he enters the room. Soldiers are obnoxiously fiddly and impossible to predict, and playing through this room a few times again I found that altering my position by just one tile in the wrong direction makes it so that he behaves completely differently, so here's a complete description of what I did:

Also, one of your assumptions about this room is a little bit off.

Thanks, I looked at the first poster's question and took it as a hint without trying what you just said. Worked on the first try.
