It's August 41 and the Finns are approaching North Leningrad. I build a line of new Fort Zones with no combat units on them on the 'No attack line'. Next turn I see the Finns have walked in and no combat reported. the FZ apparently just vanished. They had only 4 men in them at creation, is it why? Still they were built...
Can someone enlight me?

It is a common trap for newbies. (Happened to me too).

If you just create the fortified zone, it will have very low men&equipment, and so will be wipeout by attrition as soon as in contact with an ennemy unit.

We all fall to this at least one time.

Happened to me too. You need to build them a turn in advance. They fill up at the beginning of your turn during your reinforcement phase. Then in the following Axis turn they block Finnish movement.
