Dnepr: SU Stalingrad to (SU Stalingrad).
162 2/19/2018 8:09:00 AM Winter 1942 Allied Message I thought the rules would have a prohibition against retreating some units and negating the retreat with others. I could not find anything that said all or none of the units must retreat.

So it could be interpreted the Germans get no defense and retreat and if able the Romanians can hold the ground, but I tend to not think that is what they had in mind in writing the rules.

Therefore, I would say that all the restrictions in 15.2 reference GE units not Axis units, so the (ROc) can be eliminated to negate the retreat for the Germans.

If we were in a tournament, a rules appeal could go either way.

However, I tend to think because the Romanians are not affected by the Winter rule, you play is correct.

I did a web search and did not find clarification. Therefore, let us go with the (ROc) saving the day.
