We had only one rules question arising from the play.
My opponent charged on his turn at one of my artillery units. I opened fire as required to by the rules and got a (D) result. I argued that the charging unit should retreat (it was adjacent to my artillery) and that the charging unit should make a rout check.
He argued that he should take the hits only and continue the charge combat because the rules say one "can't back down" from the charge even if the odds have become disadvantageous.
Who was correct?
[For the record the Russians won after about 8-10 game turns. The Fog counter was on the second space of the fog track (Visibility 2, Phases 9), having moved only once, and there were only 2 Rout markers in the Morale cup which my opponent friend, (I have friends, who knew!), never seemed to pull out of the cup!!! They were regularly pulled out by me when I checked for Rout for my untested units!]
