I have found the notification log. However, this does not contain a log of attacks and defences. I use quick combat and sometimes I go, whoa, what hit me?

In my current case, it was a stealth bomber.

Is there a combat log I can sometimes have a look at when I'm confused?

As I begin my turn, I see combat text on the screen. It is difficult to read and does not stay long enough.

edit: notification log does not show my tank was attacked

Here is my tank that was bombarded by a canon.

Here is the notification log

edit 2: Notification of unit death and cause. Still missing, is what attacked my unit that did not die.

    I really hope they fix this with Civ 6. – Landon Kuhn Jun 28 '16 at 1:27

The Notification log (available from the piece of paper under the turn counter) will tell you if your unit died, and what delivered the final blow. I have been unable to locate any log of the individual damage messages that appear on screen, nor have I found any mod which allows you to see these after they have disappeared.

    Actually, the notification on the right when you hover over it tells you what killed the unit. – Valamas Apr 6 '12 at 2:18
  • Yes, the notification log is simply a log of all those messages that appear on the right. – bwarner Apr 6 '12 at 11:56
