I have been thinking about the situation here, and surprise, surprise it isn't all bad. I think I will certainly see October, and in all likelihood see Nov and then it is just a hop, skip, and jump till Dec and the goal of Jan 1, 1945.
The Allies will consolidate western Honshu, and if I can get all my troops back to eastern Honshu, should have a solid month to prepare for another Allied invasion with the possibility I could actually stop this one on the beach given my high forts on eastern Honshu...
A lot depends upon the evacuation, and also how quickly the Allies push forward. I know they like invading with minimal unit prep and perhaps this will actually benefit me this next time.
I also note that the Allies are moving troops to Osaka, and perhaps he will renew a fight there. I presently have forts 3 there in the urban heavy terrain, and fighting there does suit me.
