If Germany in 1 turn blitzkrieg taking Paris and Marseille (refusing Vichy), the France has 1 turn to try to retake Paris or Marseille to avoid conquest.

1st: French doesn't produce this turn due to lack of points, right?

2nd: All French units are Out of Supply (OOS), but can try to retaliate, at half attacking strenght. In that case they halve their attack strenght, but if they do Assault they first halve and after double, or they attack as normal and the defender double (ie: 9 infantry steps OOS attacks, and declare assault, assuming they suffer no loses from defending fire, the attacker rolls 9 dices, or 8 - OOS halve rounding down to 4 and after you double for assault - )?

3rd: If French cannot retake Paris (usually can't), usually tries to conquer low guarded Belgium or Rhur. At the end of the French turn France get conquered and all French troops are removed from map. If Rhur get taken by French troops it reverts to German control and gives the 6 WERPs in the next German Production Phase or German should send troops in to retake it, and lose the 6 WERPs? If Belgium is freed by French troops, which get removed at end of turn, Germany should instead send troops to retake and garrison the WERPs. Right?

Cohen (#51566),

Correct

2nd: All French units are Out of Supply (OOS), but can try to retaliate, at half attacking strenght. In that case they halve their attack strenght, but if they do Assault they first halve and after double, or they attack as normal and the defender double (ie: 9 infantry steps OOS attacks, and declare assault, assuming they suffer no loses from defending fire, the attacker rolls 9 dices, or 8 - OOS halve rounding down to 4 and after you double for assault - )?

1) French units are not automatically OOS. They don't need a resource area to be in supply, just a Home Area that can trace to another Home Area (Metz to Lyon as an example).

2) Fractions are dropped after all halved and doubling. 9 steps halved and doubled would attack with 9 dice.


3rd: If French cannot retake Paris (usually can't), usually tries to conquer low guarded Belgium or Rhur. At the end of the French turn France get conquered and all French troops are removed from map. If Rhur get taken by French troops it reverts to German control and gives the 6 WERPs in the next German Production Phase or German should send troops in to retake it, and lose the 6 WERPs?

Germans have to retake it, and lose the 6 WERPs

If Belgium is freed by French troops, which get removed at end of turn, Germany should instead send troops to retake and garrison the WERPs. Right?

Right
