I originally deployed the entire Wilson Force to Crete, without considering supply or port capacity for arriving PP (finished goods).

I understand from the rulebook that Heraklion is supposed to be a minor port, so I'm assuming that in this case.

Here is the situation:



Since Thessalonica is Axis controlled, the Wilson Force units can deploy freely in Greece.

So I think that one unit can deploy in any of the marked harbors, but only in Athens (a major port) can more than 1 deploy. That might create an overstack, but if that is resolved in the movement phase then that is OK as well.

On Crete, the British can spend a maximum of 3PP, total, to add steps to units each turn. In any mainland port other than Athens, a maximum of 1 PP can be spent per turn (because there is no rail connection to Athens).

Do I have all this right?

It will make Greece harder to conquer, but Crete easier, I think.

Yes,

if Thessalonica is Axis controlled, then the Wilson Force may be deployed anywhere in Greece (without overstacking), thus even along the Metaxas Line to threat the Axis supply line from the rear.

Athens (like Thessalonica) is a Major Harbour, so it can receive up to 5 PP.

Does it help?
