This seems odd, but I believe the rules allow it, particularly the rule about continuing to retreat if the hex you retreat into is overstacked.
It was about turn 4 in the campaign game. The Allies were still basically on the beaches until you reached the Cotentin Peninsula, where the line went across the peninsula. The Germans still held Cherbourg. Every beachhead hex contained 4 units and every other hex held three units with the exception of the empty hex to the West of Cherbourg. The Germans attacked the British in the Easternmost hex (the Pegasus Bridge hex) and obtain a DR tactical result. The British units have to retreat one hex. However, the adjacent Sword/Gold/Juno hex and the Omaha hex are full, so the units British units keep retreating into the peninsula and all the way up to adjacent to Cherbourg. Every hex they retreated through, while occupied by Allied units, were also adjacent to German units. Even the final hex was adjacent to a German unit, and was unoccupied. It just seems odd that the Eastern flank moved all the way to the Western flank due to a DR retreat.
Is this the correct way to play it?
All the little chicks with crimson lips, go...
Hey, get your stinking cursor off my face! I got nukes, you know.
Retreat rules are pretty flexible. Even the bit about going towards HQs/supply sources only says "Retreating units must try to get closer to an HQ or a Supply source."
So yeah, I think you had it right. An unusual case, admittedly.
