384 1/16/2021 7:02:00 PM Sep-Dec 1943 Allies Message I completely forgot the rule involving the loss on PW when you get a full XX or XXX size unit destroyed. Or, better to say, I was aware of that but erroneously was convinced that the rule was for army units only, not for marines. Rather obviously, without such a faulty interpretation I had never tried such a potentially suicide attack but, well, as in real life ignorance - or misunderstanding - of the rules is not allowed. All considered, better if we stop here: I already was in a painful situation before such a blunder, I just turned it into a desperate one now. Thx for having played and good luck for your future games.

Message from Allies:
SW Pac for 2+2 = 4 units.

XI and XIV Corps to Hollandia
11 AF to Sarong thru Hollandia
13 AF to Hollandia thru Lae

The ground movement only gives me control of Hollandia immediately, so I can move the air units there. No battles (Hollandia is not available for special reaction, still due to ground movement only).

PBM:

11 AF to Menado
13 AF to Sarong

Battle A): Biak, a/n only
Battle B): CVL Cowpens vs Vogelkop (just to freeze [35th Army])

In case Sarong becomes a battle hex, mandatorily (as for the rules) all people there would be diverted to Sarong Battle and I'll attack Biak with "Big E" only, which has been left out of Sarong on purpose.
