Bataan falls 1 month ahead of historical date. Well done!! That premature retreat from Clark Field really hurt me by overstacking Bataan. I contemplated pushing back out to do some suiciding, but that seemed gamey to me. I should have fought you before Clark Field and bleed over a couple other hexes before the order to Alamo Up was given.

The BB's sealed the deal at Semerang, you cannot deny the power of high XP BBs bombarding open terrain.
