31 October 2008 --- Battlefront.com and Fury Software have released an entertaining After-Action Report form the upcoming strategy game "Strategic Command WW2 Pacific Theater". The After-Action Report is taken from one of the included campaigns, "Guadalcanal 1942", and is played versus a Japanese Computer Opponent.
