This could be the worst setup of all time from a historical perspective. At least since the MB 1985 where Japan was setup to attack Hawaii in 1942 somehow.
When is it supposed to be? Japan took Burma in January 1942. If it is supposed to be January, then they should have yet to invade Java and take Malaya. Worst of all, the US Marines didn’t invade the Solomon Islands until AUGUST. If it’s supposed to be August, Japan should have the Aleutians. The Solomons should have an airbase.
On the other side of the board, the US is setup to do Torch, which happened in November. US forces should be in England, let alone Australia. The USSR is setup to attach Karkov, which happened in May. El Alamein is about to happen, so it appears to be July.
