After 2 PBEMs as Japan I feel the need to pay my pennance and play the Allies. This will be a log of my struggle. It will mostly be edited combat reports along with commentary. It will also serve as a way for me to reveie past events without having to keep a written log.

The AAR will be closed to GordoNZ after he has had a chance to introduce himself.

I am hoping that the butt whoopings I was given as Japan will help show me the way to play the Allies. I think my mindset is good since as Japan in 1944-1945 I got beaten up on a regular basis. At least here there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is not radioactive.

I guess I should mention that we are playing a stock scen 15 with 2 day turns. Japan is limited to one port strike on turn 1.

Gordon went for the Manilla option for turn 1. Most all of the subs were sunk. He appears to be going for a quick oil/resource grab in the DEI.

Wake fell on the first try

I tried a little shell game with the Malaya air force and attacked Songkia. I got slaughtered by freakin' Nates

Gordon's subs had a field day sinking 2 DDs and an MSW that were on ASW patrol without a single loss in returm. The Repulse also took a fish. My only sub success was achieved by the O20 who left a little present behing at Saigon.

Surface raiders were run off by APs and PCs. If I was playing Japan I would have several CA captains walking the plank but the Allies are not allowed to do this. I will have to find them desk jobs somewhere.

AVG is the only bright spot in an otherwise disappointing turn as they down 14 Nates in China.

Welcome to the trials and tribulations of the Allies in '41. 

Your ASW forces for the Americans are lousy until the first upgrade in 4/42. After 10/42, he can send his subs to their grave very quickly. The British are your best ASW ships for now.

You were expecting American ships to do well in combat at night?? Look at their experience level for nighttime.

You should be able to build up the Eastern Pacific quickly (Line Islands, Pago Pago, and Suva).

Is he gone now? OK here is my plan. Cause as musch havoc and distraction as possible in China to draw forces away from the front. Raids by the AVG have caused Zeros to be transfered to China and the contesting of Naning has caused units from Hanoi to come help instead of going to Malaya or the PI. Shooting down CEF Nates and Tojos does not have a big effect on the big picture but it does kill pilots. Having played Japan I know this to be a weak spot.

I am playing 42 with the sole goal of avoiding a 4:1 auto victory. All losses are exeptable as long as they take out enough Jap units to justify the loss. If I can hold Noeuma, Karachi, Chungking, and OZ and not lose a lopsided naval battle I should be OK.

I am trying to pull ABDA base forces back to Java so I can make an air fortress there. Basically any ABDA baseforce that is not currently supporting AC is having it's HQ changed and is being withdrawn to Java. I know most people evacuate them to OZ but I am willing to lose them in their homeland if they help inflict heavy losses. B-17s should be there by the end of the month. If I can sneak in enough AV support and supplies it should be very costly to Japan to take it.

AVG is doing great in China but will have to be withdrawn soon due to supply shortages. I need to decide if I want it to go to Fortress Java via Malaya while the route is still open or pull it back to India as a deternat to an invasion and to fight over the Chindwin area.

Today was mixed. I bounced another troop laden convoy but I lost the Boisie to the KBI also had this to deal with : MAJ Boyington, G. of AVG bails out WOUNDED and is RESCUED

Make sure you have a air bridge to get your British/NZ/CW fighters from Malaya to Burma/India. You can easily get them stranded and then you are up the creek without the paddle.

Assault at HK was stopped. It may last to the historical date.
AVG racked up a few more kills in China.
KB1 and KB2 shot down the brave but foolish Dutch AC that tried attacks. The main KB is off of Singapore headed SW and the mini KB is off of Kendari

AVG got chewed up trying to face off vs Zeros. Even without the bonus they are pretty good. My top AVG ace now has 8 kills. They will be leaving China soon to rest and refit.

Japs are landing all over in the DEI. I don't know if I will be able to finsih Fortress Java before landings there. I wanted to pull units from Sinep Island and Kendari back to Java but the KB is in the rea making this too risky.

Just a few comments to an inexperienced Allied player (apologies if in fact you are an experienced Allied player).

1.  It is very difficult to establish a fortress Java.  To succeed you need to also retain a grip between Java and Australia to allow for the maintenance of communications (resupply, air transfers etc).  Particularly remember that the Allies have very few recon air units and the short legged Dutch recon constitute a substantial part of the total.

2.  I would not use the AVG on Java.  It is too easy for them to be cut off.  They are far more usefully employed in Burma/India, particularly as the British cannot upgrade their air units before May 1942.

3.  In order to retain Noumea as an allied base, it is essential that you also garrison the two other bases on New Caledonia.  The three bases are connected by road (IIRC) so a cheap landing at one of the undefended bases allows for a quick Japanese march south to Noumea.

4.  Unlike AB's map, the stock map does allow for some supply to move to north Australia so it is at least feasible to contest any enemy landings at Broome, Derby, Wyndham and Darwin.  If, on day 1 you start marching some Australia Command brigades from Melbourne and Sydney to the north, they will usually get there before the Japanese do.

5.  You did not mention Port Moresby or Rabaul in your strategic plan.  Personally I don't believe that Rabaul can be held against any Japanese player, whereas Port Moresby might be defensible if the Japanese conquest of the DEI is held up (the main practical benefit of Festung Java is to delay the enemy).  Accordingly you should evacuate Rabaul before the enemy gets there (sorry if I have missed an AAR which shows Rabaul has already been lost).

6.  Don't forget the value of getting oil to Australia.

7.  PTs can only be created at American bases whereas barges can be created at both American and other allied bases.

Thanks for the advice. This is my first PBEM as the Allies so I am trying to use what my previous opponants used against me.

Just to bring you up to speed on what else I have done so far:

1. Midway has been heavily mined and there are CD units on the way to keep in from being taken. Once I get B-24s in May the bombing of Wake will be carried out from here.

2. AVG has just been pulled out of China. I have one mission for them before they go to India (Stay tuned)

3. LCUs are on the way to New Caladonia along with air and naval units. It must be held at all costs. Since I know where the KB is, I will be able to send my CVs to contest any landing there. Since Gordon has not gone beyond Lunga I doubt he would try it due to the range.

4. Rabaul has been bombarded but not attacked yet. I expet a landing within the next week. I have fast transport TFs evacuating the base force and they will then revert to a surface TF of 3 CAs 2 CLs, and 5 DDs to contest the landing. The AC have pulled back to PM.

5. Supply convoys are on the way to Java from India. If they make it I will be able to move the B-17s from Oz (yes they have arrived) to Java. This can not be done until the supplies are there since they have such a high supply requirement. I have moved enough Dutch BFs in to Java to support them.

6. I already have Oz LCUs moving towards the North coast.

7. My key in China is to not allow units to get cut off. The units at Yenen are bugging out this turn despite repelling an assult. If they are forced to retreat they will go west and get cut off. If I pull them back to Sian they can defend from behind the river and when they get driven out at a high cost they will retreat to Chungking. I learned in my last game that this takes at least 2 years to wear down to where it can be captured. Im south China I have contested Canton cutting off supply to HK. Even if they cut cut off it will take a while to push them out of the urban hex.

B-17s make their first appearance. Only 2 bomb hit but hopefully enough to rattle Gordon.

KB1 hits Singapore and is now headed for home. The evacuation of troops to Java can now resume.

As expected Gordon landed at Rabaul. A freaking Ro sub hit the CA Louisville which was sent to evacuate troops. I don't think she will make it home

In Malaya Japan is advancing. Everyone is being pulled to Johare for a last stand.

In Burma almost everyone has pulled back behind the river at Mandalay. Rangoon is lightly defended and should be lost within the week. Fast Transport TFs are going to try to save the BF

In the PI I got tired of waiting for an attack on Manilla to thin the ranks of my P-40s so I could change HQ and pull them back so I had them go on the offensive. They hit 2 APs and a MSW plus shot down a few more Nates. Hopefully this will draw a response.

B-17s harassed Kendari hitting and AP and destroying a few Zeros at the base.

The same freaking RO sub hit the Louisville again and sank her. Another nasty surface action off of Ambonia is a draw with lots of ships damaged but none sunk.

P-40s on sweeps in the PI got chewed up by the defending Zeros. They would have fared better but despie being ordered to sweep the same base they split up. I should have the PPs to pull them out soon.

I lost 3 bases in Malaya. Hopefully I can make a stand a Johare.

The Canbera was finished off by Jap surface ships trying to escape after the battle of Rabaul. CA Austrailia and DD LaTrumphant are still running for home. CA Furataka finally sank so so far the battle is a tactical victory for me. ! CA, 2 CL, and several MSW/PC in exchange for 2 CAs

Manilla P-40s got worn down enough that I was able to change their HQ and withdraw them. They are on their way to Java where the first supply TFs just arrived.

My PT boat squadron was intercepted and destroyed in the PI but hopefully took a DD down with it

Hong Kong falls around the historical date.

SS Trusty scores the first Allied sub kill of the war.

Surface action near Ambonia is a lopsided Jap victory. I lost 4 DDs and sank only 1 in return. Still, this is better than losing them to airpower.

Pretty uneventful turn. Chinese troops have bugged out of Yenen and are headed for Sian to set up a defense behind the river.

Malaya is down to just Johare and Singapore.

Java mow has plenty of supplies and AV units. As soon as one of the airfields gets to lvl 5 I will more up the B-17Es. 18th ID is on the way from India to bolster the defense.

I hope you are prepared to lose the 18th Indian Division.  Anything sent to Java is probably on a one way ticket, particularly when playing under 2 day turns.  The fact that your opponent is moving quickly on Singapore, Makassar, Amboina, Kendari, suggests to me that he will quickly cut off Java from resupply and land there before you have built up Festung Java.

I am willing to lose the 18th ID at Java. Same thing for all the Dutch Base forces and Garrison Rgts I have evacuated and brought to the island. I figure that the 18th ID will double the AV of the defenders and keep the airfields open for 2-4 weeks longer. With over 150 bombers and 150+ P-40s (plus another 100 or so crappy Dutch fighters and bombers) they should exact a heavy toll for the capture of Java. Currently I have over 200K supply on the island with more on the way from India.

The longer Java hold the longer Gordon must wait to either invade India or Oz by sea. It also requires the KB to support any landings thus keeping it out of the Eastern Pacific. This allows my carriers and BBs to make a few raids without fear of the KB spoiling my fun.

I'm not certain I agree about the KB having to remain in the DEI to support Java landings.

1.  Palembang is not strongly garrisoned and is easily captured by the Japanese.  With the west Malaya and north Borneo (as per stock map orientation) air bases under Japanese control, he can contemplate landing on Sumatra without the assistance of the KB.  Certainly the allies will not be able to intercept the enemy convoys at sea.

2.  Once Singapore falls, not only does the invasion of Sumatra become quite easy, but Batavia air base can be neutralised.  With Palembang also under enemy control, Japan will dominate Allied air space over Batavia and Merak.  A landing at either site will be covered by enemy LBA.

3.  Once the enemy lands on Java, it will be too late to build up Festung Java.  Nor should you assume you will be given an opportunity to build Soerabaja AF up to level 5 to base B-17s.

4.  After Makassar, Kendari, Amboina are fully functional enemy bases, the obvious move is to capture Timor and thus cut off southern Java from resupply.

In short, an aggressive Japanese player does not need to retain the KB in the DEI.  The sacrifice of the 18ID may therefore not produce the rewards you anticipate.

Anyway, just a few thoughts to keep you on your toes.

It's very interesting seeing a JFB try the Allied side.  You know what's coming and still try to fight it.  The really interesting part is what you're focusing on - nit picking the Japanese to death.  You're not really worried about Allied losses, as long as they take some Japanese with them.  You already took out a CA.  That's 1 down and 17 to go.

I learned this lesson against KDonovan while I was playing Japan. Once I accepted that I could lose a tons of stuff but still win (Or draw which was as good as a win) it was a liberating experience. Rather than dwell on losing a CA to an airstrike I will be thrilled that it took 2 planes down with it.

I think that this is the mindset needed to play the Allies. Too many first time players give up when the Japanese run wild.

I keep chanting my mantra "Less than a 4:1 loss is a win" and it makes it easy to accept. I am willing to draw the stop line well beyond the historical one since I know that when my offensive begins in 43 it will move much faster than history did.

The real fun here is sniping, hit and run attacks. Really messes with an opponant's head. Every ship escorting convoys that I could never attack, every plane CAPing a base I won't raid, every LCU guarading a base I won't attack is one less in the field I have to deal with.

In my last game I had KDonovan convinced I was going to invade Perth since I had raided it. I helped this by setting several units to plan for attacks there knowing that eventually SigInt would pick one off. He had the place guared well into 1944.

I hope to post some screen shots soon to make this a bit more interseting. Work has been crazy so my time is at a premium right now.

I agree with Alfred about Java. You will be cut off and have no way to evac any non-Dutch planes. I disband mine and have them re-form in 90 days at Sydney. Look at the transfer range of your various fighters. Most have short legs.

I would send over your patrol planes to evac partially to totally cut off troops rather then use fast Transport TF.

I know on CHS & RHS maps that Malang on Java is a mountain hex. It is a malaria hex, but the x4 combat bonus is nice to have vs. the clear hex at Soerabaja. Many Japanese players will prep their troops for the wronmg base while I could get many of my troops near 100% for Malang and hold out.
