In his brief introduction, Fred
explains that the discovered attack is an unusually elegant - and powerful -
form of double attack.
What happens in this case is that a unit moves off a line in order to "discover"
(actually uncover) an attack by one of its colleagues. What usually happens is
that the "discovering" piece simultaneously unleashes a secondary thread of its
own. Very often it is impossible to parry both threads.Back to Tactics page
