I have been playing Operation Battleaxe and Ie Shima for a while now but am realizing I never questioned something about attrition points.
Must you attempt to use all attrition points if possible. Lets say there are two full strength German units defending and we need to apply 10 attrition points. This is an Overrun so I know the attackers can attack again.
Question is, can I flip the lead defending unit and then just retreat both of them leaving attrition points on the table or must both of these units be eliminated with full distribution of attrition points. I have been playing the latter.
That is my understanding & consistent with other Mike Rinella games I have played. You must apply all attrition points if possible. The German units would be eliminated.
