I found these extra shots not included in the original post regarding the month of August. Here are my brief notes on the Pacific War campaign we are playing of the Guadalcanal campaign. September’s notes will be up in a few days:
As the month of august wears on the USN now faced with a stricken BB and having been unable to slow the reinforcement of G’canal they head back to base to refit and attempt a fresh attack in September. Excellent search rolls and scrambles ward off air strikes.
The USN subs almost finish off and sink the Hiei.
It takes some tricky maneuver and the loss of the an APD group to allow the Hiei to escape.
When the month end the disadvantage player – IJN must return forces to base within a given # of turns. The Japanese return and stage out of Rabaul. They are ready for the next phase of support for the all important Guadacanal post.
