1. Player 1's force with a leader attacks the opponents force which is located in an all forest area. The attack is successful and now player 1 wants to conduct a blitz attack out of the forest area and into an adjacent area. Is this permitted or does the fact that the area player 1 is blitzing from is a forest prevent him from doing this.
2. Same facts as above except player 1 wants to make a regroup move (out of the forest area) following the successful battle in which he gained control of the forest. Is this permitted.
3. Can the USSR still annex Bessarabia after it has become a German ally (but before Germany and Russia are at war and obviously do this without creating a declaration of war against Germany)? Would it make any difference if Roumania/Germany has stationed units in Bessarabia?
I think the answer to each of the questions is "yes".
I am enjoying the game very much.
1 & 2. The only restriction on blitzing and regrouping is border limits apply (2 army units, a leader, and an air unit for clear, 1 army unit, a leader, and an air unit for all others). So yes, you can blitz or regroup out depending on whether the area is enemy occupied or vacant.
3. The Soviets can occupy Bessarabia as long as it is vacant. If Romania becomes a German ally and the Soviets had not occupied the area, the Axis player may deploy a unit/s there. This would then force the Soviets to declare war on Germany if they wanted to now occupy Bessarabia.
Glad you're enjoying the game. I appreciate the feedback.
