Forgive me if this has been answered. I have just discovered the joy of this type of game so I don't have any background on how this works.
I prefer a game with individual soldiers but I can't find much of that any more. Reading this forum I heard about John Tiller, and his games look very interesting.
So, on to the question. I see the counters are made up of individual items such as vehicles and leaders, but the regular soldiers come in squads or half squads. When a squad takes damage does it track individuals or is the squad as whole unit that lives or dies as a unit?
When in danger, when in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout.
