<with tongue in cheek> This reminded me of the scene in Ronin when Sean 
Bean's character outlines his plan for an ambush, and gets cut to shreds
Robert DeNero's character...

Personally, I'd *not* put ambushing squads on both sides of the road.

I'd put them all on the same side of the road, and one at the end to act
a stopper.  If they're on opposite sides of the road and the ambush goes

bad and they have to withdraw, their force is split.  Plus, it would be 
much harder to manoeuvre in support of each other if one squad has to
the open road to come to the aid of the other.

Having said that, deployment is very dependent on the terrain.	It might

well not be a problem, and in a game, of course, you don't worry about 
friendly fire since that doesn't happen without a lot of GM
