I hope someone could help me with this problem I encountered.

In the battle of 1st Krasne, the Russians have to whithdraw in front of the attacking ennemy.  So my question is : what orders to give to withdraw without turning your back to the ennemy!?

A "move" order, I suppose the division turns back to its objectve?

If a division is given an order to support another division behind it...does it turn its back to move or does the division "retrograde" facing the ennemy?

thanks for your help 😉

You could Attack [A] away from the enemy but Move [M] makes the most sense yes 😉

Not quite sure I follow, generally a player points the Units to look toward the Force's objective, but in any case, Units may be turned to face any direction you please.

It must attempt to move into a valid 'support' position, which is admittedly vague in the text of the rules as it says 'shadow' whomever it is supporting. Again as to facing, it may face however the player wishes.

Hope that helps!

Great!! I thought that a division moving away from the ennemy had to put its reformation area in front of the ennemy while the units were marching turning their backs to that ennemy ie reverse the whole formation.

I didn't get it that facing can be chosen as situation demands.

Many thanks, that helps me quite a lot 😉

Fair concern and something that could definitely be made more clear. The Reformation Area is 900 yards behind the rear wave of the Formation. The Formation's Units may face any direction they please and behind the rear wave should be according to the facing of the rear wave. So if your rear wave faces the enemy, then the Reformation Area should sit behind them 900 yards, yet farther from the enemy.
