Could anyone explain what these columns mean.

So POOL is what is available to be used.
USED is how much of that pool goes to units.
BACK ? Does this mean they are not actually used and go back to the pool for next turn.
LOST ? Are these the attrition casualties that make up the numbers on the losses screen.

Used is how many men were used up in all the replacement phases that turn.

Lost is damaged units that failed to repair if I remember right and a portion of that manpower is lost.

Back is manpower being return to the pool it looks like it is either immediate or next turn would need the prior turn to make a judgement on that. I believe it is returned from a portion of the damaged and returned/swapped out elements in your combat units.

From my observations, BACK shows in the manpower pool this turn but isn't used in any of this turn's replacement phases and will be available next turn.

There’s a flowchart somewhere.

Damaged elements from combat are either repaired in-unit or go back to the pool to be repaired. Attrition causes mostly disabled but some of this goes to the lost pool as well. You can see how many men are disabled or killed in logistics phase. Back indicates repaired from pool plus the small fraction of convalescing men that return to the active pool.

And like redrum says the BACK pool counts starting the next turn.

Back in short means how many men go back to the pool this turn from whatever cause, they are in the logistics chain, and will be in the "ready" pool next turn. Used is however many men were used from the ready pool.

The pool in the screenshot contains both ready manpower and manpower going back.
