As you may recall we played 3 games over 3.5 hours.

This scenario we played twice. Mainly since my opening was so bad that we reset after two turns.

Turn 5 and 3 losses the US could only afford one more!

The Japs attack and its an easy IJA win, as you can see bottom right side of the picture below. Perhaps this is one of those puzzle scenarios, where it requires some extra thought and several plays.
