Looks like Canoe might be trying a counterattack in central China.
Im not really sure how this will end. I have almost 2k AV in the hex he is attacking, behind lvl 2 forts. On the other hand there really is no telling how many corps he is sending across that river. Being a river crossing, they will automatically shock attack too.
This could be a real game changer, either way. If he wins, he will have broken through the southern defences and there really is no stopping the avalanche of troops he can launch at me. If I win, he will have crippled his defences in this sector for a very long time.
Perhaps it is time to leave a blocking force at Nanyang, forget Siam for now, and move those 5k AV to the center. Im not sure. The attack could come tomorrow, or else the day after.
Also, the USMC went into action in India. The 8th Marines were defeated by Jap paras in northern India.

The era of procrastination, of half-measures, of soothing and baffling expedients, of delays, is coming to a close.
In its place we are entering a period of consequences..
