Do units eliminated by drowning count toward casualty count ?

Only regular infantry units count toward catastrophic loss. And it would take some negligence to get an infantry unit drowned, since they can always move toward the top of the beach for free, using a preservation move.

I guess I am guilty of negligence, but thanks for the tip. I have not yet assimilated all of the rules. Just got the game a couple of days ago.

I am very impressed with how smoothly everything works.

The units that mostly end up drowning are your tanks. They do not get the free preservation move like the infantry do. That's one of the tough decisions that needs to be made early on; I often choose to have the tanks perform a barrage action rather than move. That way some of the WN's get disrupted allowing a brief respite from the carnage...but the downside is they drown as the tide rises. With only two precious actions per division, it's tough to justify a tank moving when you could be leading a full step unit on an assualt.

Great game!
