      You can contact at an angle as in your second example but it means
      that there will be no combat since this can only occur between
      elements that are in both front edge to front edge and corner to
      corner contact. In your second example you have not contacted the
      enemy's flank so he/she does not have to turn to face you. Your
      enemy's options are: to do nothing -in which case there will still be
      no combat, to retreat, to wheel forward and enter into combat.
