New entry by Speedy:

Speedy vs Fabertong: Death to the Penguin! / Fabertong vs Speedy: The view from the Pole
Players: fabertong [Jap.] vs. Speedy [Allies]
Perspective: 2 closed AARs
Map, Mod, Scen: Stock Map, Scen 15
Settings: PDU on, 1 day turns
House Rules: No night bombing. Only 5 ships per ASW TF.
Current game date: December 1944
Comment by Speedy:
  • 2H 1942: Japanese advance in force towards Central China. As such UK/CW forces have no choice but to advance en masse towards Myitkyina to try to relieve the pressure. A prolonged battle here that rages through 1942.
  • Aleutians battle where US CV's sink Junyo + 2 CVL's (Faber you may have to remind me on this). In return CV Yorktown heavily damaged and sunk by IJN SS.
  • PM is taken uncontested by the Japanese.
  • 1H 1943: Allied LBA and attrition force the Japanese to retreat in Burma to Mandalay.
  • Allies first unsuccessful attempt to recapture Wake Island. On the sea is an Allied victory with CV Soryu and Hiryu sunk + massive surface combats whichlead in 3 x Allied BB sunk + c.120 other ships (including invasion  ships) to BB Musashi/Nagato + 20 other Japanese ships. On land the attempt is unsuccesful with Allied LCU's being wrecked by CD fire/minefields. Evacuation occurs successfully.
  • Allied SS campaign begins in earnest in SRA regions with several AK/TK vessels being sunk.
  • 2H 1943: Invasion of Marshall Islands begins with no contest from IJN. Relatively peaceful as garrisoned islands are bypassed. CVL Independence sunk by IJN SS.
  • Marshalls suppressed/captured by Allies by October 1943.
  • Allied SS still continue to wreak even more havoc.
  • 1H 1944: Southern SRA invasions begun in earnest on Timor. Rapid island hopping campaign initiated under cover of Allied LBA and RN ships. Surface battles lead to heavy damage to a number of RN Capitol and IJN ships but no major sinkings IIRC.
  • Timor/Bulla/Babo/Maumere/Banjarmasin captured.
  • Moulmein, Burma, invaded which brings the beginning of the end to the Burma campaign. Japanese pushed back towards Raheang.
  • Wake Island re-invaded after 2 months solid bombing. Taken comfortablly with no IJN intervention.
  • 2H 1944: Allies begin to sweep into Siam and have takne all of Malaya exceot Singapore. IndoChina being overrun.
  • Mariana's invaded at Saipan by massive allied force. 80ish ships lost to CD/mines but no IJN intervention and little IJAF interdiction.
  • B29's begin to dominate the area and smack Iwo Jima.
  • Iwo Jima invaded October 1944. P51D's now operate to gain air superiority over Japan.
  • Borneo is taken in SRA by Allies forces isolating Sumatra and Java. Further heavy sea battle around Pontianak and Singkawang leads to heavy damage on both RN and IJN Capitol Ships. BB Kirishima sunk.
  • CV Franklin sunk by Kamikaze's on CV raids towards Okinawa.
  • CV battle in South China Sea leads to CV Intrepid and Bennington being heavily damaged and Japanese CVL being sunk.
  • Allied SS continue to rampage and find few worthwhile targets nowadays.

Nice! Since this game is very close to 1945 I've added it to the 'Hall of Fame' immediately. Also added to the HoF: 2 AARs in 1945 by aztez, which I had placed in the wrong category (apologies!), and 'Battle for New Jersey', which ended in Nov. 1944 - close enough to 1945 for me. Congrats for a game well played!

At the risk of sounding like a broken record : everyone can add his own AAR here. Advanced or brand-new, elaborate or succinct - it doesn't matter.

I'll bet no one would ever think of using the nice Wiki to store this kind of information? But then again, why would anyone want to do that?

Thanks!!!

Widell is absolutely right, the wiki is a much better place for this! In a wiki everyone can write and edit their entries, and there's no need for me to keep the first post updated. Coincidentially, this also reduces my work load... Furthermore there's a nice clickable table of contents at the top of the page, which is AFAIK not possible for me to do in a post.

Since I can link to all AARs in the wiki from here I'll probably remove all data from this thread soon, and turn the first post into a duplicate of the table of contents. People can still post their entries here if they don't want to edit the Wiki. It's really easy to do, though, and I can only advice everyone to go there and have a look. If you want to add something just hit the edit buttons (they are all over the place) and login (no personal info required). The template for the AARs and instructions can be found at the bottom of the page.

TITLE: THEY WERE EXPENDABLE: Nagumo vs Spruance
PLAYERS:AdmSpruance(A) vs Nagumo(J) (Bison Frontier)/Freeboy/Belphegor
MAP/MOD:Scn 15, stock map
SETTINGS: 1 Day Turns, no PDU's
CURRENT GAME: ALLIED AUTOVICTORY 1/1/45
COMMENTS: After overunning the SRA in 4/42, Japan builds up in the Marshalls for an assault on the Gilberts. Meanwhile, the Allies build up in the Gilberts for an assault on the Marshalls. Major meeting engagement between virtually the entire IJN and USN in the Gilberts in 7/42. Massive "Meeting Engagement" attritional battle fought from 7/1/42-9/1/42. Japan made a huge "Death Star" with 8 CVs and 3 CVLs. Over 600 Allied naval bombers were destroyed in 3 major carrier engagements with no CVs lost on either side. Massive BB, CA, CL and DD losses on both sides. Eerie stalemate between opposing airforces and fleets from Sept. 1942 to Feb. 1943. After massing 300 plus P-38s, the Allies launch "Operation Rolling Thunder" on 2/1/43 and destroy over 1000 Japanese AC in one week. After that, the back of Japanese land based air is broken and the Allies advance thru the Marshalls/Marianas/New Guinea/Palaus/Iwo/PI/Okinawa to achieve a 2:1 VICTORY on 1/1/45.
Game started in v1.3 and ended in v1.8. Its very interesting to see the air war change as new WitP versions are released.

Thanks, and a small update:

Carrier battle near Samoa Islands, Yorktown and Saratoga ran into KB and sunk, with minimal damage to the Japanese.

Hi guys,

Just to say that Fabertong vs Speedy's game has come to an end in March 1945 with an Allied Victory.

Almost forgot about this list - I've started a new one a bit ago.

Title: Rising Sun Over the Rockies
Players: Feurer Krieg [Jap.] vs. OSO [Allies]
Perspective: Japanese closed AAR
Map, Mod, Scen: AB Extended, Scen 160 CHS 2.08
Settings: PDU on, 1 day turns
House Rules: EXTENSIVE HRs to try and address some game engine issues. Most significant: ATOLL STACKING RULES
Current game date: Game on March 3, but AAR is a couple weeks behind that.
Comments: Japan captured Johnston, Palmyra, Christmas Island, Luganville, most of DEI. AAR Style is no report pasting. lots of pictures and general descriptions of main events. An easy read I think.
Link 1: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=1698765
Link 2: None started yet. Maybe if you flood OSO's mailbox...
