Just to clarify, a unit of CP is charged in the flank and loses the melee. That CP is routed and removed from the field of battle?

Not quite.

That scenario isn't a flank charge because the attacking unit isn't entirely behind the front base edge of the defender.

As such it is a normal melee and the losing CP retreat by "sliding along" the front of the attacking CP.

If the attacking CP hit the defending CP having started that final charge entirely behind the front of the defending CP then yes, the defenders would have been routed.

Thanks Granicus

Actually, I think the charging unit was behind the charged unit, but I didn't depict that in the diagram. Still though, that clears up a question I very probably would have asked at some later date

Thanks again
