Imagine red ones wins the combat.

Red infantry pass the Ld check to stop the pursuit. White unit flees 7 inches. Red cavalry gets 10 inches.

Ok white unit is removed from the game, but can cavalry move forward the 10 inches?.

The knight unit pivots on the spot to face the direction the white unit was fleeing (away from the infantry, as those had the highest unit strength) and you move your 10" that way.

And the question.

In this situation, Can i choose move first the cavalry (they have less US, but this way the infantry doesn't get in the cavalry way.)

I think you get to choose which one pursues first.
If it was based on US, you can always try and restrain the infantry block.

If the infantry were to pursue before the knights, the way it reads is that they would stop next to the knights.
Although nothing says which has to go first, so I'd say it's your choice.

You move the pursuing units one at a time in descending order of unit strength. The rules prohibit you from moving through friendly units when pursuing.

With regards to your revised example: Since the fleeing unit moves away from the largest enemy unit this results in the larger unit stopping on contact with the cavalry, and the cavalry then moving in the direction of the fleeing unit.

In our local gaming group we take a bit more relaxed approach and typically move the faster units first.

It states. "OCASIONALLY, pursuing units can get in each other's way as theh same pursuit. IN SUCH RARE CASES, move the units in order of decreasing unit strenght."

Why dot use "Move the pursuing unit in decreasing order of unit strenght" it is shorter and fairer. No doubt.

Also in the page 40 flee/pursue secuence didnt stay you have to move units one at time.

I think you can chose the order you move them, and only if you cant avoid they get in each other's way , you must move in decreasing US order. So why not move cavalry before, and then the infantry if this way they doesnt get one in other's way?
