    A "should" question

    When I thought I was learning something about the "should", it finds a way to confuse me (again). So, I find the sentence:

    Should you attack me

    I know about the "person + should + verb + complement" structure and the consequently question structure, but what about this!?

    Please, someone explain me what it's the meaning and the logic behind it.

    Excuse my English, feel free to correct me

    Should you attack me, I will defend myself.

    HEre, should means slight possibility.
    In all probability you will not attack me, but if you will, I will defend myself.
