Retreat Phase

What is the Retreat phase and how does it work? Is it just like the Order phase or no?

Any dislodged units retreat during this phase. If you have a unit that was dislodged, then it works like a normal order phase for the units that were dislodged.
Don't argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

If your unit is forced to leave the area.

Example -

Austrian army in Trieste. Italian army in Venice. German army in Tyrollia.

Ven => Trieste
Tyrollia support Ven => Trieste

Trieste would be dislodged and forced to retreat during the retreat phase.


*edited, thank MR :P

Good example mdmuff....except for the fact that an army in Munich couldn't support Ven-Tri. :P
