Is there a definition of what constitutes a weakened soldier unit anywhere? Thank you.

I don't think there is a formal definition of 'weakened' in the rules, though I've always understood it to mean a unit that has lost figures but is not eliminated. Soldier unit is defined by the charts.

Applies only to Physician and Stretcher Bearer Combat cards I think.

Thank you Mark. It is the Stretcher Bearer card that has prompted this question. Clearly a weakened unit will have suffered casualties, but the big question is how many will cause it to be 'weakened'? I'm new to the C&C system, but I've been playing wargames of various types for more years than I care to remember. Consequently I feel that being able to remove a unit that has lost just one miniature with this card us a bit extreme. In the absence of a rule for this I'm tempted to allow this card to onlybe effective upon a unit with just one miniature left.

Any thoughts?

General rule of thumb with C&C games is read the rules literally.
So despite your feelings, my sense is that the rule means any soldier unit with 1 or more figures removed.

The removed unit doesn't count as a banner, so removing weakened enemy can be detrimental to achieving victory. Making it only 1 figure units would pretty much preclude playing it against enemy units in my view.

Obviously you can house rule it as you like, but in a general interpretation, I think weakened means anything less than full strength.

Yes, I can see the logic in what you suggest Mark, so I'll go with your approach and see how I get on.

I saw them tie a soldier to a cartwheel with his arms outstretched as a punishment. I also knew of men who did themselves in. British soldiers weary of sitting in the trenches who cut their throats during leave. If order hadn't been maintained, they would have deserted. They were coerced. When you're in the army, you can't just do whatever you want. ~~~ Gaston Boudry, in the Belgian book 'Van den Grooten Oorlog' ~~~
