It‘s been awhile since i‘ve played this, so i‘m certainly missing something:

At the start of the great campaign the West‘s chosen active card is card #1, but it cannot receive the printed replacements as there is no partisan base in France (as per 1.3.4 Minor country)?

Where do you see that they need a partisan base to get the conditional reinforcement?

If France is a Policy Affected Country (Locarno, Guarantees, Appeasement, etc) you get a French infantry step. France and Britain start the full campaign game in Appeasement, and it would be very hard to change that in the first couple of turns.

Oh wait, I guess you think they can only place a replacement on a partisan base?

The first bullet of 1.3.4 for replacement locations says:
"A non-colonial unit can be placed in a Home Country City hex"

Fifth bullet says:
"A French colonial unit must be placed in a City under friendly control in any French Dependent"

So can place a regular French step in any city in France, or a French colonial step in any controlled city in a French dependent. (As long as the city is not occupied by enemy units, logistic markers or support units, of course)

You could also place a regular French step on a supplied French HQ unit that is inside France, or on a partisan base in France, if you had one.

I was just about to respond similarly. Allied card #1 reads:

Change of Governments

Conditional Events Segment
If France is a Policy Affects Country, receive: France: 1 infantry step



So, no requirement for a partisan base; just place a French step in the conditional events segment.

Thanks, i seem to just have focused on the bullet point concerning minor countries and thought the other general ones only applied to the major ones.
