I just picked up Monmouth and was beginning to go through the first scenario.
I have a pretty basic question re: Assault. If Unit A successfully close assaults Unit B and advances into it's hex and THAT hex is adjacent to another unit would Unit A be required to assault it, as well?
In other words, could a unit engage in several assaults in a single phase?
In short, No. A unit will never engage in multiple combats in a single turn. The reason for this is, prior to engaging in all combats, you must declare where you will conduct a combat and whith which units. You will also have to declare your diversion (if you are using one as well at this time. So, once all combats are declared, there can be no others.
If you end up in a situation as you have described, you are forcing your opponent to either move away from your units or engage your units in combat on thier next turn.
Hope that helps,
