Sorry for the tone of my post yesterday, and the title. I was pretty pissed off at the time. I was on a roll in a game against an upcoming player, running a "Rommel Fantasy" campaign, moving into India through Iraq, and was ready to make the final squeeze on Gibraltar. So, I decided to take out Vichy France, since then I could hopefully destroy the French Fleet at Gibraltar, or scare it away since it had been reduced to the last hundred or so structural points and was worthless as an air/naval base. So, I landed an HQ in FNA, right next to Gibraltar, took Oran and Algiers, transferred and flew into Oran a bunch of air, started building a road into Tunisia with engineers, used the Rommel HQ to take Mosul, some forces from Turkey and Palestine to clear the coast road, and some more panzers to sweep into and paint hexes in Syria. Finally, some forces took Marseilles and the road down the Loire valley. Everything was going like clockwork...until I opened the next turn and discovered that everything in FNA, and Syria had disappeared.
If you're playing any current or past versions, here is what is "safe" for you to do:
If you are the Western Allies, you can invade Syria and FNA. Since the event grants those territories to you, your forces will not be destroyed there. However, do NOT invade Metropolitan France. You can safely move into Metropolitan France only on the following turn.
If you are the Germans, you can invade Metropolitan France. Since the event grants that area to you, your forces will not be destroyed there. However, do NOT invade FNA or Syria. You can safely move into FNA and Syria, only on the following turn.
Hope this helps others avoid my heartache...
