436 8/8/2021 6:41:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message Iíd say we both learned a lot. I enjoyed playing with you. I appreciated your responsiveness and commitment to the game. You did well in Burma, but the ISR hurt you - bad luck with the cards. It made it hard for you to get anything going, since the Army and Navy are too weak by themselves early on to make much progress. Good luck in the next round.
435 8/8/2021 6:21:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message GG! I learned a lot. Thanks so much for your patience throughout. Have a great vacation. Iíll look forward to following your match in R3 if there is one.

421 8/8/2021 6:41:00 AM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Sorry I misread that rule. I agree. NZ Div is eliminated. It would be an extremely gamey result if not.
420 8/7/2021 10:06:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Japanese Message I think the NZ Division is eliminated.

9.5 says:
"A retreating Reaction ground unit is moved by the Offensives player into an adjacent hex that does not contain Offensives unit, that was not a hex from where an Offensives ground unit entered the battle and where retreating to does not cause an overstack. If possible, the hex has to be a legal named location friendly to the retreating unit; if this is not possible, any legal hex may be selected. If these conditions cannot be met or if the battle-hex is a one-hex island, the Reaction ground unit is eliminated."
419 8/7/2021 9:54:00 PM May-Aug 1943 Allies Message Battle A, Ground combat results

US: 9 x0.5 = 4.5 hits, no effect
JP: 10 x2 = 20 hits, flips NZ Div

NZ Div must retreat. Rule 9.5 states that the offensives player will retreat the reaction unit. In this case it seems that the only legal retreat is into the Vogelkop.

5AF must EAM.

That was an unusual result to say the least. Stopping here to make sure you concur with Battle A results.
