Rick -

I've been playing this game for ages, but...

Are blocks in the (un-built) force pool, hidden or open info?

Part of the value of Britain's militia units is in deception value...
If I see 4 units in Britain, but his force pool is visible and I don't see the militia units, I know Britain is weakly held...

Similarly, if I see the Italian Airborne in the force pool, that's one less thing the British have to worry about in North Africa...

The rules don't explicitly state either way, although it may be implied from the Glossary text for "Ground Units" that units in the force pool are setup so that the opponents can not read their identity.

The number of blocks in the force pool is public knowledge. Which actual blocks remain unbuilt is hidden.
