After 67 edited screenshots and nine pages of text, the Battle of Guadalcanal has finished.

There was a titanic conflict between two huge Japanese surface fleets, US Marine Air Corps, and the US Navy.

Like reality, this scenario was a long, huge battle of attrition the Japs lost.

This update introduces scout pilot "Mewler" and his belief in the Scout Pilot Death Dance by Captain Skull.

On a happier note, there are only three scenarios left in this campaign! :)

The Battle of the Philippines is over with a US Victory 25 turns early (with a 50 turn deadline)!

A shocking revelation was made about General Wrigley's forced retirement by Pentagon enemies.

Part 1 of Scenario 11: Okinawa

Below is a link to my strategy and the results of the first three turns. I plan to finish this scenario and the invasion of Japan (the last scenario in this campaign) before the end of the year.

https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/20 ... 1-okinawa/


I did not update the game blog for three months for all sorts of reasons. This is a hobby and not a job. My wife and I went on a two week transatlantic cruise. But most importantly my wife suddenly went 100% deaf in one ear and had vertigo for several days. The hearing loss is permanent and nothing can be done. This is a mystery to medical science.

Because of my extensive training and knowledge of statistics including medical statistics, I read the summary literature on her problem. She got the right treatment very fast. But this problem is one of the hardest to set up a medical study for that I've ever seen - a thought shared by three different physicians including two specialists.

She will never be able to tell the direction of sound again. She has great difficulty understanding people talking if there is much background noise. Our days of going to concerts is over and she needs to avoid anything that can damage her good ear so she will not be pulling clays for me shooting shotguns any longer.

Just one of those things that happens as people get older and there are a lot of things that could be worse.

The Imperial Palace has been captured after 2 A-Bombs were dropped. The AAR is complete!

This took a little under a year to finish. I hope you enjoyed reading it. I'm working on a strategy guide for the campaign.
