My opponent has noticed I'm conducting Slim's reconquest of Burma (1944-45) in 1942. I had so many spare divisions and tank brigades, I just had to apply them in a useful direction. Of course, he's conquering China, so it's even. In addition to the action in the south, which is being reinforced by a second corps, I have three Japanese divisions cut off in Paoshan, and I have a corps coming south from Kalemyo.

Japanese battleships bombard Lae. Preinvasion. Given that it's occupied by a company, I suspect that's overkill.
