I just don't get hex control. In China I am playing the Allies (YES: It IS possible that I do that!). I have troops cutoff at Hengchang and so I capture Loyang to the NW of the hex and then have troops directly west of Hengchang and STILL it won't open a retreat path for my troops. Doesn't make much sense to me whatsoever.

Can anyone explain WHY troops can't move into a hex solely controlled by their own army?

What side was last to CROSS that hexside? If it was the Japs, then they OWN it, something akin to having troops left behind to the rear.... thus your supplies and retreat can't cross it... the best you can do is cross the hexiside with your own troops and thus turn that hexside into yours.....

AE = hexSIDE control
old WITP = hex control

The Nex north of Nanyang really shows this in action with the IJ controlling the "inner doors" and the Allies controlling the outer doors ..

Read this thread which deals with hexsides. In particular note posts #9 (from me) and #10 (from treespider).
