Civilians and when do they move

Post by dirk bracke »

When civilians are surrounded by VC to the rear are they going to break through to escape? I thought that VC used the civilians as human shields?

Cheers

“That’s foul propaganda put about by the reactionary Imperialist forces. All Vietnamese civilians are devoted to the cause of independence and throw themselves willingly on the oppressors unarmed or not!” :D

Seriously, as it says in paragraph 14.9 the VC used civilians as shields by hiding amongst them. The rules do not allow the Communists to intentionally fire upon civilians so without that threat they can’t prevent the civilians fleeing through them in my view.
