I was wondering about pinning in this scenario...
Russia moves stacks of troops into area. Germany counters with as many units. All units are ground. Is this battle locked until one country wins no matter how many turns it takes?
Russia 24 ground units - 30 dice max roll
Germany 24 ground units - 30 dice max roll
This literally could take 3-4 turns. Or can the attacking country call it off at some point and retreat?
The pinned units can be relieved by reinforcements, but yes the pinning holds. The standard game is shockingly bloody, so it shouldn't take too long for one side to push through.
