• If, after combat the contested space is vacant (all units, defending and attacking are destroyed) can the attacking player move one of his/her pieces (that didn’t take part in the combat) into that territory from an adjacent territory during non combat moves? Also, if the territory remains vacant at the end of the turn does it still belong to the defender?

    No. Non-combat moves can only be made into land territories already owned. If all of your attacking troops fell in combat, then you did not take the territory in combat and hence are not allowed to enter during non-combat.

    Also, if the territory remains vacant at the end of the turn does it still belong to the defender?

    Yes. The attacker must have at least one troop remaining in the territory after the last defender falls in order to claim it. Otherwise, the defender retains possession.

    This is one of the reasons why an attacking power would choose to lose aircraft over cheaper ground units - because you need at least one surviving ground unit to take the territory.

    And cheers to you as well. I hope the above explains things well.
