I wondered about that too. There's no river the Russians can cross and
still be attacking my corps south of Silistra, at least not sensibly. Mike
could use his extra movement to cross and recross the Danube, I suppose.

On the cyberboard map, I can't tell if there is a river. On the electronic map we used when Tom was trying to put a program together, it looks like there is a river on both sides of Silistra. Therefore, I assumed I was having to cross a river for the attack. If there is no river, it is quite unfortunate since I chose my chit assuming I was vulnerable to the river crossing tables on the cordon defense chit.
