We are told that PF comes with 16 map sets/theatres of war. Where will they be? I've read so far of Midway, Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, New Guinea and Singapore - that's only 5. I would also take a guess at Philippines (both 1941-42 and 44-45), Marianas, Burma/CBI 1941-45(I hope they won't leave this out),Japan, Okinawa, Rabaul/New Britain, Formosa, Marshalls and Gilberts. That's 14. Then there could be Hawaii and say Wake Island. There are other little islands too, but personally I would rather see thetres like Burma done than some piddly little coral atoll thet only saw one days airwar. My 16 would be-
1. Burma/CBI 41-45.
2. Philippines 41-42, 44-45.
3. Solomons 43-44.
4. Malaya/Singapore 41-42.
5. Rabaul 43-44.
6. New Guinea 42-44.
7. Midway 42.
8. Japan 44-45.
9. Java 42.
10. Marianas 44.
11. Marshall and Gilberts 43.
12. Okinawa 45.
13. Formosa 44-45.
14. Wake Island 42.
15. Sumatra (Palembang) 45.
16. Iwo Jima 44-45.

I thought hard about Pearl Harbour, but its a lot of trouble to go to for a very brief action. Although Pearl could replace Wake.
I'd definately like to see more on the RAF/FAA in the Pacific/Far East. CBI was a very important theatre - lots of raw materials and the chance for Japan to possibly link up with the Germans via India. Many places in the Pacific like Marcus or Wake island etc. didn't really matter whether they were lost or not. The Japanese always regarded Burma as their most important front, NOT the Pacific! Also Burma airwar was non stop from Dec. 41 until August 45. Not only RAF and JAAF, but it was also a forgotten war for the USAAF as well. I think its about time that this was put right. Importance of many Pacific islands has been exaggerated.
