Default Multiple characters with shield wall training

Okay, so here's the scenario: Alice, Bob, and Carol are three Infinity agents undercover as Roman legionaries. They've been properly trained in Armatura (Martial Arts p. 150), complete with the Shield Wall Training perk. They get attacked by some bandits, and form up a shield wall in response, with Alice in the center, and Bob and Carol on her left and right, respectively. The first bandit attacks Alice and scores a hit. What happens next?

They would all prefer "Alice not getting stabbed" to saving their blocks for future attacks, but because there are multiple bandits, they definitely want to save as many blocks for future attacks as possible. So: does anyone who wants to protect Alice have to declare before any dice are rolled, "wasting" their blocks if multiple rolls succeed? Or can Bob roll first, let Alice see the result of his roll before she decides if she wants to roll, then Alice rolls if Bob fails, then Carol rolls only if absolutely necessary?
