« Le chef de l'Etat a chargé le ministre de la défense de commencer à faire revenir les troupes vers leurs bases permanentes »

I understand that this means that the head of state has ordered the defence minister to begin bringing troops back to their permanent bases (it's about Russian troops carrying out exercises on the Ukrainian border) but could someone explain the grammar to me please? Why "commencer à faire revenir" and not "commencer à revenir"?
