Probably somewhere in CSW and also BGG (though the one I found was me answering the question! But Mark Herman approved my answer)

But yes I'd you end ISR if happens prior to activation. It's a bonus that applies in step one (but the wording is nebulous. I think if it were up to me I would update all cards to mark when the bonus applies)
398 10/23/2020 12:24:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Japanese Message Hey Francisco,

I have a question about this one : when is the bonus implemented, before or after the activation of the units ? Apparently, according to my Player's Aid (the offensives phase, step 1), the activation of units is the first thing applied, before the bonus implementation.

More generally, these various steps often talk about bonuses that are supposed to be implemented before movement, or before reaction etc., but nothing says in a card's text where the bonus belongs...Any clarification hidden somewhere in CSW ?
