2 marines and 2 infantry, 3AAF and CVEs and shorebombardment total a 2:1 attack on Guadalcanal. The first wave gets bogged down with heavy losses(5 factors), but the second attack succeeds after further bloody fighting.
In total the Americans lost 8 factors in this battle against entrenched and desperate Japanese forces in this three month- long campaign to secure the island

Invasion of Kwajalein Atoll
After a massive shorebombardment and air strikes, British and American army units(this time without marines) land on Kwajalein at 2:1.
Nonetheless, without the well-practiced landing routines of the marines, many allied lives were lost as landing craft sink in the exceptionally strong surf. Others run aground on the reef, forcing the men to wade the last 100 m through waste high water where they were easy targets for surviving Japanese riflemen and machine gunners.
In the end, the island was taken for 6 factors lost.

14 transports remain at sea, 2 sunk for 2 submarines.

Tokyo leaders discuss whether the time is right to offer the alllies a full surrender:
Japan surrenders if the Japanese resistance drops to 0
+20 - basic Japanese level ============================20
+1 - per pacific front objective under Japanese control
(Guam, Okinawa,Truk) = +3 =====23
+1 each for singapore,manila,
dacca, rangoon, calcutta, colombo= +6 =====================29
+1 for each aleutian island ==============0 =============29
+2 india surrenders============+2=====================31
-3 allies control tokyo =0==============================31
-2 each for allies in Kagoshima or Osaka = 0================31
-3 for first japanese hex under allied occupation,
-2 for second, -1 for each thereafter =0 ===================31
-1 allied control Peking, Mukden, Shanghai, Harbin,
Nanking, Okinawa, Seoul, Canton = -3 ====================28
-3 for first atom bomb on japan, -2 for second, -1 for each thereafter =28
-1 for each firestorm on japanese city =====================28
-1 for each oil effect = 0===============================28
-1 for each 10 unbuilt ground/army air factors = - 3 ============25
Net change since last turn: -7
The Japanese accept that the situation is worsening, and that the loss of Manchuria has rather defeated the entire raisen d'etre for the war in the first place, but the military government believes that holding out may yet yield a negotiated settlement
