Roll 5, -2 = 3 = D3. Retreat to 1308

2. 2320: hexes 2419 and 2319 attack @ 20 to 3 (6 to 1); -1 ER; net 5-1(-1); will advance at least one unit into the defenders hex; if D2 or more, will put at least one of the paras into 2321 to surround your unit in 2420. Note your retreat path must be 2220 – 2121 – 2020 – 1920 since that is the shortest path to a line of supply

Roll 6, -1 = 5 = D2. Retreat to 2121

3. 2420: 102 Cav supported by FA/174, 422, 333 for 16 to 3; -1 ER; net 5-1(-1)

Roll 2, -1 = 1 = 1D2. Eliminated for failure to retreat
