New to game.  Friend and I have different interpretations of 'closest straight ahead and in arc'.  Question - my unit breaks through.  An enemy unit was on the flank of the unit I defeated.  No enemy is to the front.  The 45 degree arc cuts through part of the flanking stand.  Does my unit turn and continue combat, or charge through into the Formation Reserve Area?

Same situation, with added complication of an enemy unit to the front.  In most cases, if my 45 degree arc cuts through part of the flanking unit, it is the closest unit 'in arc'.  

For what it's worth, we turned the unit and it then attacked along the line of contact, which looks wrong when compared to examples on pg. 59 and 62, 2nd ed rules

Hello!

It would be correct to turn the Unit up to 45º and strike the enemy Unit which is ahead but to the side. The rule is intended to indicate the Unit performing the Breakthrough must hit the closest enemy Unit and may turn up to 45º to do so.

Examples 6.6.1 and 6.6.4 were not meant to exemplify Breakthroughs but they should have been made more precisely with regard to Breakthroughs.
