Just finished playing the 1942 campaign, it was close game - but I did get an Historical Victory.

On the forums I've seen posts about 'pinning'.

Unless I'm playing wrong I don't see how 'pinning' really benefits the Allies?

If an island hold the following Japanese forces: 5 infantry, 2 naval, and 2 LBAs. A Japanese roll orders 2 naval, 2 infantry, and 2 LBA to move. A US submarine could pin the infantry, but not stop the naval and LBAs. Since the infantry could not follow, wouldn't 2 more battalions enter the game? It seems to give the Japanese more forces to work with.

Right now I'm thinking about starting the 1943 campaign...

thanks

Some orders move to a closest US force location/battle. If a single US ship is put on a stack it becomes the closest for those orders and that order's group would stay put.
