If you read, it says that city garrisons may _not_ be used in a
field combat in the city's area, only depot garrisons (along with corps and
other mobile forces) can be so used.  The only exception to this is a
limited field combat, where an attack is made to relieve a city garrison
under seige.  In this case, some or all of the city garrison can participate
(see; I think this (i.e., the limited mobility of garrisons) is
the reason that limited field combats can only last one day.
