Ok, this simple change would spell a huge difference, but if all be true, and people don't like the no advance rule of the -2 trenches, how about this simple change.

No longer include that rule, HOWEVER
retreat rule now in effect.
Defender only has to retreat, if the total damage is greater for them then the attacker. So a 1/2 would be a retreat, while a 1/1 would not.
Retreat is simply one hex, may split, but must be away.

Do not retreat in any case where you would not get a advance under rules as written, or in a fort, or fortress.

Pretty much that's it.

Jo in my experience the -2 retreat rules are OK. After all, the Western Front had long periods where the lines moved very little.

My biggest concern with the game is the ability of France/Britain to wear out the Germans far earlier in the game than historically was the case.

Also, don't forget that to keep the line stable, lost trenches had occasionally to be recaptured by the defender/losses from bombardment etc.
