246 12/31/2019 4:10:00 AM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message you`re right. This morning it crossed my mind, when I was asinfg myself why you would do such a move. As I said, I overlook some rules.
245 12/30/2019 1:13:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Allies Message actually, it's not possible. because none of them are battle hexes (no opposing units, and not under AZOI so no special reaction), and so you cannot react to them
244 12/30/2019 1:04:00 PM Jan-Apr 1943 Japanese Message Michiaki, you did several unescorted AA. I could easily turn them back because of this rule:
"If Amphibious Assault ground unit(s) are without an
accompanying friendly naval unit and opposing naval forces of
any type end their movement in the battle hex as part of reaction
movement, the amphibiously assaulting units are turned back."

I have the feeling you might have overlooked that and I want you to ask if you want to stay with your move. You allowed me too to redo moves if I made severe errors because I overlooked a rule. So I feel myself obligated to warn you.
