https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/2279600/reaction-no-battle-hexes-declared


196 9/21/2019 10:08:00 AM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I'm pretty sure that there can be no reaction via die roll or reaction card to change the intel condition since there was no battle hex declared, or created by Special Reaction (which wasn't available anyway).

See 7.2 Offensive Sequences - specifically Step 6.

You can play an Attack reaction card - like Submarine Attack - to inflict losses on the Offensive player's forces - but that doesn't create a battle hex.

I'm reaching out to BGG to make sure I am understanding this correctly.
