You gents should have a hard time guessing where Fun House is going, although the possibilities aren't limitless at this point in the game.
Everything I've said about Fun House has been true ... but I haven't given the whole truth. And sometimes, truth in the absence of the whole truth can be misleading.
This was necessary in this case because I had a problem. It was the same problem that Stonewall Jackson faced on May 2, 1863. He had his Corps strung out on a flanking march. At one point - a landmark known as Catherine Furnace - the long line of II Corps would pass close to the Union lines. He detached a regiment to form a skirmish line near the furnace, and asked JEB Stuart to personally see to it's deployment.
The regiment chosen for that assignment was the 23r Georgia Infantry. The officer in command of that regiment was Col. Emory F. Best. His photo, which serves as my avatar, was taken a few weeks later, while he was a prisoner of war in Baltimore.
For the past seven weeks, I've feared a repeat of Catherine Furnace or worse. Thus I felt it best to stick to the truth, but not provide the whole truth.
We'll see if it works out better for me than it did for Emory Best (and Stonewall Jackson, who was mortally wounded later that day).
I've vacillated between thoughts that you're going for Luzon or upper Indochina. Luzon is more points, Indochina is potentially easier for you to use and cut off the belly of the beast (although Luzon does help accomplish the latter, it's somewhat vulnerable for a while).
My bet is on Marcus Is. (since KB is in the DEI now), Daito Shoto, Okinawa, Taiwan, and maybe Pescadores. Then grab as many of the islands from Amami Oshima to Taiwan as you can, including Batan Island and Itbayat Is. above Luzon. That is too many places for the number of units likely available, but as in your last operation you can take them or not depending on balance of forces and ability of troops to redeploy quickly (fatigue/disruption etc. permitting).
