Grabbing Iwo Jima. Don't think any reaction possible. A little trick we learned from the Japanese in N. India :)
501 5/24/2019 1:51:00 PM May-Aug 1944 Allies Message Welcome back.

481 5/19/2019 4:13:00 AM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message ok, pbm done so you can do yours, I will pass on my turn
480 5/18/2019 4:37:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Assume my FO card is in my hand.

It never works to try and rush these things :)
479 5/18/2019 4:35:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message It didn't click with me that you hadn't done pbm.

So just take file from after combat and do your pbm. Ignore my rambling.

Can't see why you wouldn't pass so I'll just do this on my turn.

If you don't I can always still play it.
477 5/18/2019 2:08:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Allies Message Pbm done. That could of went better. At least you don't have the two scoring cards. The great fear of the U.S.

You have more after A/N than I do so the Marines are considered to turn back before arriving so back they go to Guam.

I think I've spent 6 of 7 ASPs
Guam x2
Jolo - Aussie
Menado - Aussie
Palau
Marcus

Back to you. If you pass I'll play to FO. So back to you.
476 5/18/2019 12:07:00 PM Jan-Apr 1944 Japanese Message I uploaded the combats in Dropbox, but did not yet do the PBM.

I have 2 questions actually :

The ASP allies used is at 6 out of 7 - this includes the last assault to Marcus or no? I did not see it change in the move file.

And then actually the assault on Marcus - I guess I am considered the winner of A/N battle so the invasion is turned back?
