Artillery Attack - 8/3/2012 8:45:30 AM

A question, maybe produced because English is not my first language. The manual says

If you initiated combat with a bombardment attack, it allows you to strike with your
artillery units without fear of having to engage in hand-to-hand combat, although
counter-battery fire might still cause some casualties. Artillery is only half as powerful
when used as part of a direct land attack instead of in a bombardment attack."

When I make a bombardment, that unit depletes all its AP, so I am never able to use them again. Is the manual trying to say bombardment doesn't involve hand to hand combat when in close hexes?

I am sorry I do not understand this paragraph

artillery can also be used in direct attacks, then it is half as powerfull and will likely suffer damage. better use them for ranged attacks with full power and no risk of direct combat casualties.
