the Pacific Theater was badly neglected in the original game. we've gone to great lengths and pains to correct that problem.
this is a list of possible Pacific Theater generals that I've added to the game. not all of these generals actually served in the Pacific, but some of them would have been likely.
since China and Japan were at war from 1937 to 1945 I've put special emphasis on diversifying their rosters.
I included Japanese generals that saw combat against Allied forces in Burma, the Dutch East Indies, France, Mongolia, the Netherlands, the South Pacific Islands, Soviet Union, Thailand, and Vietnam.
each general has a short biography, and as best as I could manage, has an SAI template that matches their historical tactics and strategy.
additionally, I've added more Communist Chinese generals who would become important in the Chinese Civil War.
I've included Nationalist generals who would play significant roles in WW2 and after. I've made it a point to include generals that were not always successful. some of these generals were notorious criminals, military failures, and mercenary drug lords!
one problem with a lot of games is that they tend to focus only on the most brilliant examples of generals from each country. to be sure, I'm trying to emphasize the best people as well, but I'm including the failures to flesh out the game a bit more.
