Hi All,
Had a question about Overruns (6.4) and Ambushes (6.11). Suppose the French move a stack of two units next to a Viet Minh unit, declare an overrun attempt, and expend the necessary movement points. After revealing forces it is a 4:1. The VM player attempts an ambush and it is successful, so that one of the two French units is now disorganized and therefore cannot complete overrun. The new odds with the one remaining French unit are 2:1 and the French player gets cold feet. At this point, is the French player required to carry out the overrun at 2:1 or may he abort the overrun? If he can call off the attack at this point I would assume that the units are done moving.

He must carry out the attack, if possible.

I will emphasize it in the next living rules.
