569 8/4/2020 8:09:00 AM Sep-Dec 1944 Allies Message I never had a ground unit be able to move through and capture a space either. It only works where there's a transportation route with a port in it and an enemy ship alone in port. Rare set of circumstances.

Bose event can't be played to recreate armies, only restore reduced.

Per Mark on BGG:
"... there has to be a reduced unit on the map within three hexes of Rangoon to receive the replacement. An eliminated unit could not fulfill this a condition.

2 Ground Replacements: The Japanese gain two ground replacement steps that must be used immediately. The recipent ground unit must be within 3 hexes of Rangoon (2008) to receive the replacement. Remove from play if used as an event.
