898 3/24/2019 12:00:00 PM May-Aug 1945 Japanese Message Time to surrender. I was hoping you had a lot of 1 cards and I had reinforcement or ISR cards, but I didn't have any. I can't react in any way.
Great congratulations, you have made a really well done attack on Japan.
I think I can defend better and I hope to have another chance, what do you say?
