Whilst playing A Victory Denied I was wondering about the rules for retreats. They appear specific. In essence :

The horrid question then becomes then does the German player lose 1,2, or no steps.

If a full unit is lost that is 5 VPS!! Thank goodness it is near the end of the game.
What is your take?
