Are fortifications a two shift defense? The Terrain Effects says so, but the rules say one.
Assume you're referring to the C3i version of the game? Regardless, only one defensive shift for the fort.
For Minsk, is there an additional shift because it is a major city?
No, Minsk does not provide a defensive shift.
