In regard to our previously discussed plan to allow JJ to win a few battles to make the war last longer, do you think this is enough or should we let it run a bit longer to keep their interest up.

See, that's the problem. We shouldn't put our ships right next to each other like that or the bad guys will find the adjacent ship trying to cover the first deck they hit. Also, that seems like a lot of alcohol to me, but it does seem like it will go faster than AE.

*******Oval Office, Washington, April 26, 1943(c)********

FDR: This Lingayen thing is really going to look bad in the press.

Gen. Marshall: Yes sir, it will, but I am afraid it could get worse. There are another 3,200 of Australian 7th Div pinned down at San Fernando and the US garrison at Iba has no practicable escape route.

FDR: How could this happen, General?

Gen. Marshall: Well, Mr. President, it seems a low level flunkie gave the orders for 7th Australian to assemble in road march right in front of the big Jap attack.

Adm. King: And there is the whole crazy yellow bastard angle as well.

Gen. Marshall: Indeed, well said. I very much enjoy the erudition of these meeting. <looks back at FDR> Sir, I'm afraid there is one more thing......it's MacArthur sir, he's trapped at Iba.

FDR: OH SWEET BABY JESUS! NOT AGAIN! <pinches his patrician nose..and pauses in thought> Look, Adm. King, is there any way we can take all the PT boats in theater out of action?

Senator Truman: <pokes head in door> Sorry to interrupt but Fernando in the kitchen said you ordered these crackers with sea urchin eggs. Say, I couldn't help overhearing? Is Gen. MacArthur going to be OK? He's one of my favorites.

I'm stuck inside sick most of the weekend and no turn.

The good news is I have reached a state of equilibrium with the raccoon/rabbit/rat/opossum/skunk/squirrel/neighbor kid that has been eating my tomatoes. There are so many right now we both have enough. Something, however, is eating the bean leaves and the pepper leaves. I've got a nest of 47%'ers in the back yard. They are all over out here in California.

*********Pranning**********

The question is what to do with the Mongol horde at Lingayen? 800 AV, plus there is at least another regiment of the LYB's at Iba already.

Most likely, the horde will turn west toward Iba but they could also move east and destroy the remainder of 7th Aus at San Fernando. They could hunker down at Manira or Crark but I doubt it. An attack at Iba is the much bigger threat. They could potentially be there in 2 -3 d and attack in 3-4.

Also of note, JJ just did a recon by arty attack yesterday at Manira. That is at least most of two whole divisions at Manira. There are a shedload of WJD's on Luzon! I no longer think it is a good idea to take the two Marine regiments out of the line at Manira.

Ground combat at Manila (79,77)

Japanese Bombardment attack

Attacking force 255 troops, 21 guns, 17 vehicles, Assault Value = 894

Defending force 13258 troops, 322 guns, 367 vehicles, Assault Value = 554

Assaulting units:
52nd Division
19th Division

8th Medium Field Artillery Regiment
7th Shipping Engineer Regiment
14th Army
3rd Ind. Engineer Regiment
28th JAAF AF Bn
4th JAAF AF Bn
11th Garrison Unit /1

Defending units:
193rd Tank Battalion
7th Marine Regiment
182nd Infantry Regiment
1st USMC Corps Tank Battalion
8th Marine Regiment
110th Combat Engineer Battalion
5th Marine Regiment
3rd USMC Tank Battalion
97th Field Artillery Battalion
98th Field Artillery Battalion
148th Field Artillery Battalion


Short of evacuating Iba, we will have to throw more units in there. This means some of the units prepping for Okinawa or diversion of the landing at Aparri. Also, the Mongols at Lingayen are going to get plastered by every B-24 on Mindanao and probably some of the mediums need to be brought up too.

It's not fun to lose 12,000 troops in one day but it is fun when JJ fights back.

Well, clearly you're in the top 1% in bean production and therefore you're not worthy.

These 'surprise' arrivals of WJDs on Luzon? Any chance they were the SWPac reserves previously tasked to Truk?

It could be deer eating your tomatoes. They need to put on fat to withstand global cooling.

Seems to me that was 48th Div???? In any event, it is fair to say that WJD strength on Luzon has been "misunderstimated".

We didn't really "need" Lingayen but the loss of all those troops really hurts.

Here is what we have at Iba. Not really "fungible" either.

Help! My house intercom that has been broken for 15 years just started working again and it is playing an all John Cougar Mellenkamp station.

It won't turn off either. Creepy. Probably a rat bit into a previously damaged wire, completing the circuit with the saline in his vermin mouth. It will probably stop when the tetanic muscle contractions wear off or he turns into a lump of carbon.

Used to get deer in the back yard but too many dogs around now in the neighborhood. The HOA insists you hire a "certified arborist" to trim any native oaks. Probably you would have to hire Marlin Perkins to get rid of a deer.

Doorbells and Intercoms usually run on a mere 12 volts and miniscule amps. You rat should be roasted by about Anno Dominé 2031.

2031? We should be done with the game by then.

The turn arrived last night but I was too much of a sissy boy to stay up and do it. Here is what I noticed.


1) Takao is the new 600 lb gorilla with 110 fighters and 60+ bombers.

2) There is a level 4 airfield on the northern Formosa coast that is ungarrisoned.

3) 26K angry and highly motivated LYB's at Lingayen. They brought in a few fighters. We lost an understrength VMF squadron there yesterday with 7 Corsairs.

4) Very well escorted transport group passing SW of Okinawa headed West. 5 or 6 DD's, an AMC and AP's. My guess is this is a counterinvasion of Batan Is. which they could perhaps reach in 2 days. There must be a SCTF somewhere about too. Speaking of Batan Is., 158th Reg is only partly disembarked after the convoy was scared off by Murasame the previous night. Back they go along with some more SeaBees.


Wasp (now west of Panay) will rendezvous in the Philippine Sea with Yorktown (coming up from the Moluccas) and try to kill those transports headed west near Okinawa in about 2 d.

Br. 2nd and Aus 8th Div will move west of Mindanao/Luzon unders the escort of the CVE's. One or both Div may be needed at Iba and/or Vigan. The plan to refuel the carriers is deferred.

25th Div will start emarking at Manado (even though substantial disablement exists). 32nd ID will embark at Port Hedrand. One army gect will embark at Cagayan.

So my son joins Air Cadets. Embarrassing but he likes planes so okay. Comes home today with a letter about Air Cadet Summer Camp at RAF Odium* (sic). I mean, I knew the Crabs were an odd bunch but that's rather too self-deprecating.

*If you Google that it corrects to RAF Odiham. What an odd bunch. It's not like we had a ship called Beaver. Oh, wait...

Its good for the soul of us JFB to see you folks take it in the shorts every now and then. It gives hope for all of us getting our *^%$ handed to us in other games. Not a show stopper, but a nice "clown in the closet" moment.

My tomato battle has been with a turtle family. They are coming up from the pond every other night. I noticed always the lowest on the vine, and several vines every time. No tracks, no dropping, and the local gestapo agent ( my mutt) seems to always be gone rabbit or deer hunting. I fool them though! I woke up at 4 am to do some spotlighting, and whammo i catch em. Four monsters from the deep , neck craned and picking away. Sgt Skip lying in the grass watching the action take place, now the notched ear makes sense, the coward.

Moved them back to the pond, and put a few blocks around there path, and no problems since. For deer and rabbits and damn near anything with a nose( including neighbors) you can bye this stuff that smells like dinosaur crap. Spray it around the perimeter and nothing comes near, and its even safe to spray on the plants.
