How come my commander was killed in action when no battle has taken place and HQ was not in ZOC of enemy units?

That's called leader attrition. Assume he was killed in a car accident or he shot himself in his foot and died of the wounds.

Because war is hell, my friend.

I'm currently producing a device that should (we hope! ) allow me get rid of some of Marquo's scummy Axis generals.

Or maybe he got fed up with the "High Command's" orders and shot himself rather than getting sent to the gulag

I try to come up with fun obscure reasons when my leaders mysteriously die like that...

He faked his death, put on a tutu, and joined the Bolshoi Ballet.

Second turn in a row commander of same HQ (same situation - no attack, no attrition) is killed. I wonder what will happen next turn ...

In both cases good commanders unfortunately ...

Bad luck. During world war two Ernst Udet killed himself and then Molders (Genaral of the fighters) died in an airplane crash while heading for the funeral...

It happens..

Von Reichenau's death was something too... The fates really didn't want this guy to be saved (for a reason though, won't cry about that).
