one think to remember, you can not really compare the two, while Mac and Nimitz may disagree about ideas and how to do things, the IJN/IJA wouldn't work with each other, wouldn't follow commands if given by the other
and in our game, it is totally different area, but you can not really model the battle for Lunga, with out seeing what happened around PM
also, it is HARD to say that Mac didn't get things he wanted or needed, he had his own US NAVY working for him, and on the other side, the Navy, had it's own US ARMY working for them (besides having there own troops)
HARD_Sarge [/B][/QUOTE] He also had the US Army ships to calll on, yes the US Army has a navy even today. Mac had the nack (?) of getting things when he needed them either by convincing his superiors or by going over their heads, he was not above of going to the press either, thus his 'reputation'. This did tend to get him in hot water with everyone.
