Josh is correct, it's once per unit, not once per squad...sorry for the ambiguity! It's a quirk of how infantry banding together works in the game; with an X defense bonus it's mathematically associative (can multiply then add, or add then multiply, and get the same result), but with a + one it's not.

Conceptually, that sort of makes sense for infantry bunched up in the limited space of hasty trenches. For defense in depth spread out across the expanse of a whole hex, I don't see infantry as being more prone to taking casualties just because they're in mountains though. Infantry defending in mountains tend to survive and hold the line really well. If that's where you want to go with it though, then perhaps a bit of description would help.

*edit*
Double-checking the current 6E(R) rules, entrenchments increase the multiplier for infantry.
