After the release of Patch 2 Herbie and I will restart our game. In a first, out of three games, for Herb he has struck at Pearl Habrour rather than Singapore or Manila. It will mean a change in strategy for me. I also feel he will go for a forward line of defence that will target Wake Island and the Line Islands. Aerial activity over the PI's was minimal with just two strikes at Clarke Field. Early indicators are of a push in China as he already has more planes there that in our last AE game.

AAR will start in earnest soon, once the turns start rolling.

Extract, The Pacific War 1941-45, J McNeice, Osprey, 2009.

Dawn, 7th December 1941 and the European War becomes a world war with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour. The combined force of 6 aircraft carriers strike at the US Pacific Fleet at anchor in Ohau. Though the number of ships sunk was embaressingly low, on that first day on PT Boat was obliterated by a 250lb bomb and one light minesweeper sunk, the Japanese had ushered in a new era of naval warfare. Carrier borne planes could best the steel behemoths that had regined supreme until now. A few minutes after the first wave struck orders went out to all US troops across the Pacific calling them to battle stations. Long drilled plans went into action and immediate evacutaion of important shipping started all over the Phillipines. Hours after the attack at Pearl Harbour, Empire and Dominion troops at Hong Kong reported heavy aerial attacks from Japanese planes based in mainland China. At the smae time the 8th Indian Brigade reported it was under heavy attack at Khota Bharu in Malaya. It seemed that the Japanese High COmmand had planned the assualt for months. Contemporary views of the Japanese as an inferior, yellow species of human being was put to sleep after a few weeks of precision attacks and assaults all over the South China Sea. The Ducth enclaves in the area also came to battle readiness as it was clear to them that their oil rich lands would be the objective for the Japanese thrusts. The biggest intial problem for the Allies was the vastness of the Pacific and the fact that their troops had been caught flatfooted by their enemy.

Eastern Command at Calcutta was a flurry of activity. Urgent telex's from the Admiralty in London were flying in on an hourly basis demanding sitreps. The attack on Hong Kong and Malaya had meant that the British and Commonwealth forces in the region could expect attack at any time. The first thing EASTCOMM orgainsed was the mass redployment of merchat shipping to Cape Town and Aden. The prime supply hubs and troop arrival points for the region. Within India itself, troops began to deploy south to protect the border with Burma and the main industrial sites in the south. Likewise orders were given to the Rangoon reinforcement convoys at sea to divert to Chittagong and unload their troops there in order to bolster India's southern flank.

The damage reports were coming in late into the day on December 7th. Thankfully no major capital ship was sunk though several were very heavily damaged, no doubt several months of yard time in San Francisco beckoned. The air fields had been prety badly shot up and a significant number of planes destroyed on the ground. Uncomfirmed reports were also coming in of the Maryland being hit by a torpedo well before any planes had been seen or heard. DD Ward, on patrol at the harbour mouth, also reported several explosions inisde the defensive minefield perimeter. Had the enemy inifiltrated a number of submarines in the hours before the dawn attack?

***ENEMY CARRIERS SPOTTED***180 MILES NNW OF HAWAII***SHIPS APPEAR TO BE ON A SE HEADING***PROCEEDING TO SHADOW***OUT

When Admial Kimmel read the message he felt the tingle of fear and expectation travel down his spine. Were the Japanese about to launch on a second day? Orders were drafted and the search efforts, well those assets stil available, intensified.

Aborad the CV Enterprise Admiral Halsey could not believe the orders he had been handed. The enemy ships that had pummelled Pearl had been sighted and a Catalina was shadowing them. Rather than being ordered to engage the enemy he was told in no uncertain terms to steer to the NW, for Midway. CINCPAC believed the enemy resupply force was in the vicinty of Midway and a crippling strike there could hamstring the Japanese effort in these waters. He crumpled up the paper and threw it overboard and ordered his captain to turn his ships around. He would run today but he sure as hell would not run next time!

The question on the lips of CINCPAC was 'Where have the Japanese gone?'

Despite an intensive search effort the Japanese carriers that had struck at Pearl Harbour had disappeared. The impending attack on the Philippines had not materialised despite aggressive sweeps over Clarke Field. The South China Sea seemed empty of Japanese shipping. It was only in Malaya that Japanese aggression was felt. Khota Bharu was occupied by overwhelming force which was supported by modern fighters of the Ki-43 type. The fixed undercarriage Ki-27's were being deployed to cover the invasion fleets while the A6M2's and Ki-43's dealt with the Buffaloes covering Khota from Georgetown and any incoming bombers.

Where were the Japanese?

This lack of Japanese action has me fearing a surprise landing somewhere. Herb has hinted at a new strategy. Could he be going for a direct landing on Clarke Field? The KB has disappeared off the scope. Is it heading south to support an attack on the Line Islands? Could a Japanese arrow be heading south into Fijian waters?

It promises to be an interesting game!

If he does, consider yourself very lucky. Between the minefields and coastal guns at bataan, any invasion force is likely to be hit hard.

Hi Jonathan,
Best of lucks with your new game. Consider me a reader :)
what are you thinking with AVG ? Could be interesting to defend Burma or Singapore skies better than dirty chinese skies.
Best of wishes.

What are you going to in CHina ,Historically many of the Chinese forces defeated at Ichang during its capture moved to Changsha so that these were 300K there they also moved the heavy artillary to Changsha so that when the Japanese attacked with 100K they took a beating and werent interetsed in fighting till 44. Changsha is critical to the Japanese as it blocks the Railway they want to Vietnam and you will need better than 3:1 and your best artillary to do it , its also the only place where i spend the supplies to build up forts it may be the difference you need to win that critical battle.  Also watch for a push on Xian that seems to be popular.  Also read the Nomahan Redux for the tips on Artillary and rotating units to reserve.

@bklooste: China's main priority is the securing of Changsha-Liuchow line and the line Ichang-Nanyang-Chengchow. In our last game Herb pushed hard against this line afrom the south and east and i am preparing for this eventuality. The Japanese have just ecavuated Ichang and I shall need to be very careful about how I redploy the forces there.

For bklooste. Main line of resistance in China. CD icons represent the strong points on the line. Airfields will be built up on the line and behind it and I will hope to base some RAF Squadrons in China as time progresses. As can just about be seen in the screenie, all Chinese forces to the east of this line are being pulled back except for nuisance and rearguard forces.

Dutch submarines are operating in a target rich area in the South China Sea and the Gulf of Siam, having chanced upon the main Japanese shipping lanes between thier bridgehead at Malaya and Indo-China. Several Japanese ships have been sunk enroute to the battlezone and several subs have been positioned to intercept any cripples heading to Saigon.

The main action in this seventh day of war has been in the air with Lt Hill of the 2/AVG, shooting down 3 Nates in solo combat over Changsha. He brought down his damaged crate at Henyang to great acclaim from pilots and ground crew alike. The IJA has just realised that it no longer reigns supreme in Chinese skies.

On a sadder note, Hong Kong and its garrison fell to the 38th Japanese Division and its support troops. Damaged ships were scuttled in the harbour and surviving planes found safe haven in the Chinese hinterland.

Extract from, 'The Pacific Campaign Vol 1', by Major Reynolds (ret), Cambridge Press 1977

'...and so it began. The first fortnight of hostilities were relatively quiet considering the surprise achieved by the Japanese forces. These first days were characterised by a speedy advance to Kuantan by recon units in Malaya and a landing on Singkawang on the 19th Decemeber. It was clear to the brass at Singapore that the Japanese would be using the aerodromes there to close any movement of shipping in the Bangka area and begin raids on Java. At the same time light carrier forces had moved into the Sulu Sea and accounted for three light freighters in as many days. It was hoped that the high presence of submarines in the area would strike it lucky and hit one of the enemy's carriers. Indeed, one American submarine (SS Searaven) scored a dud hit on the CVL Ruyjo which compounded a catastrophic error made in US torpedo research in the late 1930's...'

The Battle of Singkawang was fought on the night of 21st December 1941 and it proved to be the first encounter between heavy units on either side. Using the advantage of a moonless night, VADM Phillips guided his ships north by north east hugging the coast of Borneo until radar detected a mass of enemy ships to his front. He kept fire until 5,000 yards when the main batteries on the Prince of Wales opened fire on a Japanese battleship. As the roar of the first salvo subsided and the first shells hit the water around the enemy vessel, a myriad of search lights opened up along the Japanese ships revealing a alrge number of surface vessels among which two battleships could be spotted.

Phillips was confident, despite what was arrayed infront of him, that the combined firepower of the Repulse and his own flagship could see off the enemy fleet. The Prince of Wales fired a second salvo and scored a telling hit on one of the enemy battleships. Strangely enough the Repulse had not yet opened up with her main or auxiliary batteries. The enemy however did. The CA Mikuma fired a full broadside and the Prince of Wales and scored three hits on the belt armour but it was the guns of the venerable Kongo that did the telling damage. At a range of 3,500 yards two 36cm shells tore through the POW's armour and exploded amid ships. Damage reports were sketchy but the ship was still fighting and afloat. Her attendant destroyers menawhile were locked in a deadly duel with their Japanese counterparts with the Electra finding the range of and leaving the Nowaki aflame. The POW's 14 inchers managed to score two hits on the Kongo's tower as the second Japanese battleship, the Haruna joined her sister in hitting the Prince of Wales with her secondary armament. Yet again the guns of the Repulse remained silent, something that was to be investigated in a post war inquiry. By battles end the Royal Navy ships turned south and sought temporary refuge at Pontianak where the DD Encounter was detached to escort the POW to Batavia. She had received moderate damage but was still capable of 17 knots.

Further to the east Jolo Island ahd been captured by the Japanese and intelligence intercepts had picked up signals from an incoming invasion force with the destination of Butuan. 3 Royal Navy destroyers that had originally fled Hong Kong but were now stationed at Cagayan were ideally placed to intercept these ships, this despite enemy air attacks that were suspected to originate from Babeldoab. Elements of the 17th PS have been transferred from Manila to provide air cover.

EDIT: Screenie should read CVL's not CL's
