- Hello !

- I am trying Napoleonic General de Division;

- Has an Unit holding a Town a Front ? Can it suffer a Flank Attack ? 

- Thanks!

Yes it can.

Chris put on the Yahoo! Group:

"Yes, a unit in a town could be attacked in the flank. The unit will be facing in a particular direction, even if some of the chaps are keeping a watch out on the flank. They wouldn't necessarily be able to wheel companies to face."

 

What I would suggest is that if you want to have a strong-point like Hougoumont or La Haye Sainte, then don't allow flank attacks on them, but do allow them in normal BUAs.

Thanks Whirlwind !

......and does this rule work for Marechal de Empire too ?

............and I guess that a Unit needs a Redeploy, in order to gain the Effect on Combat in Bua, is it not ?

For Marechal de Empire - yes.

I don't think a unit needs to redeploy to gain the effect in BUA (although I think it isn't a bad idea); although units can only move into BUA in columns.
