There is an updated version with backgrounds in the globalwar36 discord but I cant upload it here as the size exceeds what is allowed.
Correct date of alignment of Siam ?
When Siam aligns with Japan ?
In the japanese’s sheet : “Siam aligns with Japan in january 1939”.
In the rulebook page 21 : “In the production phase of the japanese july 1939 turn, …”
So, wich one is correct ?
In real life, it’s on December 8, 1941 that Japan invaded Thailand (formely know as Siam).
We will wait for the Errata.

Siam became a dictatorship in December 1938, with the rise of Plaek Phibunsongkhram (Phibun) After this they began leaning closer to Japan and became more anti colonial, nationalistic, etc.
I expect that is the reasoning behind the date, and and so would expect JAN 1939 to be the timing. That said, one could also house rule control in 1939, or just alignment when Japan goes to war if they wished.
