Blake didn't know the planet was dangerous but he definitely planned to use a planet that would make him look pitiful and so he'd be able to say that despicable...I won't feel badly about you if you left me there...what a lying, manipulate bastard.
If you take a look at what the crew was willing to do, they were never reluctant to fight the Federation. They only objected because Blake's plans were usually suicidal. Those were inevitably Avon's objections to Blake, even from the very beginning in Cygnus Alpha. He knew Blake would get them all killed.
When Blake's plans weren't stupidly suicidal (and there were very few that weren't), Avon and the crew didn't tend to complain or resist. I don't see that Blake's efforts was to make a reluctant crew fight. They wanted to fight, but they had limits on what they were willing to sacrifice.
The crew made their limits very clear in PP. They wanted an even chance of surviving. They refused to do anything that they considered a pointless sacrifice. Blake didn't have any limits, he would sacrifice himself and all of them and any number of innocent people to get his way, even if it was just to make a point.
He had no right to force his crew to follow his values as long as they were willing to fight.
Like Avon said to Cally snidely...on Earth it is considered ill-mannered to kill your friends while committing suicide...that is what Avon objected to. Avon never once made any objections to fighting the Federation. All of his objections were against stupid plans that would get them killed.
