I have now received The Western Front: 1914 to 1918 and have a question about the combat example (Figure 9). While I understand the attack, the counterattack seems wrong. The example states that the French player's counterattack "is increased by 3 due to the rough terrain." Yet, the CRT clearly states that rough terrain only modifies the die roll by +1.

Am I missing something?

On the face of it yes; but I have the previous edition and cannot be sure. Perhaps you should post at Consimworld were Dave Schroeder answers questions.

I think the problem is that the terrain effects have evolved since that example. At one time I think rough did give a +3 modifier on counterattacks.

The example is not correct according to the Terrain Effects Chart in the latest Sterling Edition of the rules. It says that attacker gets a -3 attacking over rough, while the counter-attacker gets a +1.
