I may be blind, but I can't seem to find any definition of "isolation" in the Third Reich (2nd edition) rulebook. I don't remember seeing it in my first edition book either, but that was a long time ago.

The are a couple places places where the term is mentioned in the rules, such as:

  • 2.7 Fortress ... Can't be taken by Attrition or Isolation

My rulebook index has "Isolation (out of supply units)" and a reference to the rule that units that both started and finished the turn unsupplied are eliminated.

So I would think isolated is a shorter way of saying out of supply.

I can't find anywhere in the rules that defines "isolation". But the rule on Fortresses (4.8) does say that units in them "can't be eliminated due to supply."
