After the Post Office managed to ignore the 'Do not bend' request on the envelope, the game was still in decent shape, with only the map sustaining an unwanted fold - no big deal.
Pat McCormick commanded the vaunted IJN, and by the third turn had the scale pushed completely to the "2" in the Japanese favor. Somehow with decent use of the transports I got the scale back up to "0". The result was the expected draw. Losses were close in terms of carriers and BBs, too. Looking forward to getting this back on a gaming table in another month or two.
Oh, and the Post Office not only corrected their error the next time I received a 9"X 11" envelope, they called me back to follow up. Terrific!
