575 6/2/2019 2:27:00 AM May-Aug 1944 Allies Message OK, thanks Cezary, I enjoyed it.

I've had 2 games now that have gone to 1944 and I'm wondering what on earth the Japanese can do? It seems to be a hopeless task from stopping the Allies from winning one way or the other. Is it the case that Japan has to win early or it's a certain loss?
574 6/2/2019 1:26:00 AM May-Aug 1944 Japanese Message OK. This game was boring experience from couple of turns, but now is a waste of time for sure, without Japanese chance. Thanks for a game and congratulations.
