Defeated enemy retreating and subsequent battle declarations
« on: March 08, 2017, 12:09:22 PM »
Hi all.

We are playing a 100 days campaign. While the British are picnicking and fox hunting around Quatre Bra, the French have concentrated and hammered the Prussians elsewhere. The Prussians retired enough units by turn 28 to lose the battle, thus vacating the battlefield squares and moving their columns to squares adjacent to the battlefield. My question regards the victorious French in possession of the battlefield. Can they organise their columns anywhere on the battlefield squares? This potentially allows the victorious French to move to battlefield squares adjacent to Retreated Prussian columns, thus immediately declaring battles at the start of the next campaign day. This seems a little unfair on the Prussians who having retreated from the battlefield can still potentially be adjacent to the French. The retreat doesn't seem to be able to put enough distance between the combatants, penalising the battle losers?
