I do follow history and playing games based on history too helps fiction to facts! I haven't heard a better explanation about the Political page in the rules than from your comment Kcdzim!

Just for you to finish up then, can you answer the reasoning of who takes the Dutch/French islands/land first related to who attacks first..?

I see it as it's open territories for any nation to take:

if UK takes Sumatra and Java, us takes Celebes, Japan takes Dutch New Guinea and French Indo China at the beginning rounds where no battle has taken place by anyone:

UK gets 8 extra ipc's, us 3 ipc's, Japan 2 ipc's.

So what is the big deal about Dutch New Guinea, is it a concearn who gets it first..having no ipc value even tho you can build air/navy...( Indus unit as well..? ) on any island reguardless once owned.

This could change the game for me explaining to rules to new players, and others reading!

Thanks, Bravehart.

The Dutch countries can only be taken by UK/ANZAC as non-combat movements. The US is completely barred from them. If Japan takes them, it is an act of war and everyone activates. The exception is if the islands are being liberated, in which case anyone in the war can take them.

As for building Industrial complexes, you cannot build ICs on islands (Japan is the only exception) and you cannot build an IC on a territory with less than an IPC of 2.

Wow were was this at?  I didn't know the US was barred from taking these territories.  Where is this information you get this from?
