Message from Allies:
I really wanted to slip this into the FOQ, but I think I'm better off resetting the defenses in the CBI, so you can consider your campaign a success, sir.

Play the Event on HQ SEAC for 5 Joint activations:

b) 1st Indian Corps from Dacca to Dimasur
c) 2nd Indian Corps from Dacca to Dimasur

127 1/21/2020 9:28:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Battle B shows a Critical Hit, and lucky for the Royal Navy it's for them rather than against them. Doesn't help, as 15 hits is only enough to flip one unit, and that will be BB Nagato. But 28 hits by the Jpn could sink either ship, but in this case must flip both for 20 and then finish off CA Exeter for 28 exactly.

BATTLE C at Akyab has both an A/N and Ground battle.

The A/N is (FE AF) with 4 factors looking for a CH.

You get surprise, but the A/N battle cannot flip the poor Aussies anymore than they already are, so they only get to contribute their DRMs.

The second die is the Aussie defense which would max out at a meaningless 6 hits, so this is for their Honors of War.

OC: 1 EC: 0

Message from Allies:
With no P-38's currently in the theater, in this universe, Admiral Yamamoto's demise takes a more sinister form.

Apparently, young Army officers, protective of General Tojo's position, and jealous of the rising star of the Admiral, successfully assassinate him. This fact is covered up to both the Japanese people and allied intelligence until after the war. General Tojo's potential culpability was never established as all the conspirators committed seppuku after their heinous act.

Regardless of the cause of his death, the Allies are extremely grateful for such a break so early in the war.

101 1/16/2020 7:17:00 PM May-Aug 1942 Allies Message Joshua; I'm on travel for the next 5 days or so. This means that I'll be able to play late each evening, perhaps early each morning, but in between it'll be spotty.

For example. I will move before going to bed tonight, but can't get to it quite yet. This kind of travel will be infrequent.
