The link is broken. Also, back when it was up I tried to double-check the results, and they weren't always correct.

For a basic overview of odds (broken down to the single-attack level) I would recommend the table at the end of my RISK odds article (also copied on wikipedia) - and for compound odds, I would recommend this research paper.
