I know I have had a discussion on Consim World about what would have happened if the Japanese would have used the Fuel Farms and Dry Docks as a greater priority target then then the Battle ships, and well I have not had the chance to try such an attack, hopefully some time next year.
But I have a another question - Yamamoto said "We have awaken a giant and filled him with a terrible resolve..." when he had heard that the Japanese Declaration of War did not get to the State Department until after the attack. My question is this - if the Japanese DoW was delivered on time, or better yet some 2 to 12 hours before the attack on Pearl Harbor, how much of a difference would it have made? Would America not been filled with the "...terrible resolve..." Would there been a point in the costly Pacific Theater that we would have said enough and done a Negotiated Peace instead of an Unconditional Surrender? And does anyone have an idea how this would effect the Victory Condition for the Pacific War or any other Pacific Theater game? I do hope to hear from you all
