The rules say:
Field Battle
A Field Battle is resolved normally as describe above.


What is "above"? We're in the "Attacking a Stronghold" minor section, and immediately above it is the "Attacking a City or Fortification" section. Or perhaps they mean the previous major chapter, "Battle Resolution". Depending on the answer, attackers have to roll a 6 or maybe just a 5+, on the first round of combat in a field battle.

It means the section above (Battle Resolution?). It cannot mean the Attacking a City or Fortification Section since a "Field Battle" is only fought in a Stronghold region (in the field outside the Stronghold).

The end result is that a field battle requires a 5+ to hit.
