The FOGN rule book say infantry in square get 3 dice, do they get 3 dice for each side of the square? Or only the front arc?

A square gets three dice in total, which must be split between eligible targets as usual. And they only shoot at close range, no medium range firing at all. Each face has its own arc of fire, so there is a 90 degree blind spot at each corner - it's not a 360 degree arc.

I also have a question:
The FAQ for buildings says that troops in column may only enter or leave from a point where a road touches the building, but doesn't say whether they are able to occupy it. (they cannot immediately defend it)
The next section says that infantry entering a building to occupy it must be placed in Tactical formation even if normally allowed only skirmish formation.
So this would imply a free formation change??
Does this mean an infantry unit that enters a building along a road in column to occupy it is than immediately placed in Tactical formation?

I think my head is about to explode! Shocked
