There is no layer cake effect in OD, correct?

ABCDE all field hexes.

Hex E is at lower elevation than ABCD.

A unit in hex A has LOS to hex E, correct?

That's correct. It may seem counter-intuitive at first. The terrain in this vicinity is very gradual and hills are barely perceptible. And the slope hexsides on the map were placed to achieve the correct LOS between hexes rather than to denote the actual locations of elevation changes. In most cases, however, the two are one and the same.

Another way to think about it is that field will never ever ever block line of sight, UNLESS it is at higher elevation than BOTH attacker and defender.

By the way, Mark. I don't know if I ever told you, but I took a month vacation last August to this region in France. We rented a house near Bayeux. Indeed, the hills are subtle out there. The rivers are small, but each side is heavily overgrown with vegetation, and there is still lots and lots of bocage.

I read the rules while I was on vacation, and I couldn't wait to come back and play. It was fun to drive around imagining the battles.
