Dateline, Shanghai, over cocktails at a British Consulate Dinner Party, a low-level British Diplomat was seen talking to a certain "Captain Mario", the royalist-leaning Italian Naval Attaché whom he knew from the Great War: . . . "Captain, off the record, off course, you must pass this along to your counterpart in Tokyo. The British position in Shanghai is a politically precarious one. Commonwealth Forces are here to safeguard ten's of Millions of pounds worth of business investment and maintain a strategic commercial trading position in the Far East, nothing more. We have no civil or legal authority other than what the local Chinese War Lord is willing to provided to us. Much of the city, including Chinese and American Military installations are off-limits to us, and what goes on there is beyond our control. It's very similar to the Boxer Rebellion situation, with Commonwealth Forces holed-up in dedicated positions around the city. Please note that it is the Nationalist Chinese Flag that oversees all here, and the Commonwealth's role is that of an outsider whose presence is merely tolerated. Efforts by Japan to blame, or hold accountable, Commonwealth forces for the actions of China or the USA miss the point entirely. Great Britain does not desire any type of confrontation with the Japanese Empire nor are we doing anything in Shanghai to aid or provide comfort for the other belligerents. Our Government would like the Empire of Japan to reconsider the last peace offer from the USA so that this bloody damn war can be ended as quickly as possible. However, should the Japanese attack Shanghai proper, Commonwealth Forces have been provided with sufficient latitude to defend themselves and key Commonwealth assets. Such a situation would also provided that terrible little man, Churchill, with the opportunity that he's been looking for to cast our lot with the Americans. That is something that very few us would like to see"

Captain Mario states “Well, fortunately our Il Duce is the very model of an enlightened leader, and would never involve Italy in an unjust war”. While his words sound sincere, the contortions on Captain Mario’s face indicates his meaning is closer to the opposite. “We are all servants of our government, of course. But in the meantime, I have some friends in high places in the Japanese civilian and military establishments. I’ll see what I can do. Let us meet here in 48 hours.

“Well”, says Captain Mario to the British diplomat, “this certainly has been an enlightening two days. Here is what I have found. The Japanese are becoming annoyed at the American submarine base at Shanghai. The Chinese attack north of the Yangtze River has provided them a convenient pretext to settle some old scores. My contact states the Imperial Navy is very concerned about provoking the Royal Navy, while the Army doesn’t seem to care. Apparently there is a vigorous disagreement between the services over what to do with Shanghai”.

Captain Mario paused for breath to let that sink in. “You must realize that I’m putting one of my contacts at risk with what I’m about to tell you. He is a patriot, just as we are, with access to some of the more reasonable members of the Imperial Navy. He seeks clarification of the British position regarding the American submarine base and Shanghai in general. His name is Captain Yuni, and will be waiting at this address on the Canton waterfront not far from the Hong Kong border at noon in two days. Please send someone you trust, with the information he needs”. Captain Mario then handed the British diplomat a sealed envelope.

“There is one more thing. Your statement two days ago about the best way for Great Britain to stay out of this war is to end it is correct. There are certain elements in the military, mostly the Navy, and the government that would like to see this happen as well. The official position of the Japanese government is that all American forces must withdraw east of Midway Island, return all former Japanese possessions, and quit claim on all former US territory west of Midway.

My contacts tell me there may be some room for negotiation here. Both sides have fought hard, but neither has decisively defeated the other. Japan has recently ceded some territory, but inflicted frightening losses on American forces while doing so. There may be an opportunity here. At this time, Japan may be more serious about negotiating with the Americans as equals, rather then treating them as a defeated power. However, they will not tolerate being treated as a defeated power themselves, or, what is the word in English? Oh yes – dishonorably. They will not tolerate being treated dishonorably. Honor seems to be very important in their culture, and may be part of the reason this crazy war started to begin with. Please convey this message to your American contacts”.

Crossing the Hong Kong - Canton Border in civilian clothes, Captain Jones met his Japanese Naval Intelligence handler, Captain Yuni, in a non-descript back alley tavern not far from the Catonese waterfront. Their relationship was one based on friendship, from the days that they had met as Junior Officers in training at Sandhurst during the "Golden Age" of British - Japanese relations. Both men were intense patriots who were deeply committed to their respective nations, and both also longed for a return to the period of Anglo-Nippon hegemony of the East Asia Region. In addition, Captain Jones was a committed American-phobe who resented the influence on British Foreign and Military behavior that Britain's indebtedness to America from the Great War entailed. "Neutral America continued to trade with the Bosch", he told Captain Yuni, "While our boys were dying on the fields of Flanders and The Somme. Now with Churchill leading the coalition government......... we're bound to get involved with something far more sinister than Gallipoli", he continued. It was not without a reason that Jones mentioned Churchill's Mediterranean folly, as this was the location where Jones lost his only command when his Pre-Dreadnought struck a mine trying to force the Dardanelles.

After several rounds of single malt Whisky and toasts to the health of each other's figurehead rulers, they got down to business. Jones handed Yuni an Admiralty document marked "Top Secret" concerning the Navy's rules of engagement in the event of hostilities in the waters off of Shanghai. This recent draft document was put together based on concerns for possible Imperial Navy responses to the illegal use of Shanghai for offensive operations by China and/or the USA. "Under no circumstances", the document said, "should Commonwealth vessels actively engage any attempt by the Japan to blockade the movement of Shanghai military forces of other belligerent nations in or out of the port of Shanghai". The document also when on to stipulate that Commonwealth Military vessels should only take what could be construed as passive defensive measures in order not to create an "incident" or an excuse for military escalation.

"You see, Yuni", said Jones, "these bloody fool American submarines come and go at night and are gone each morning. There's no question that they are using Shanghai in such a way that violates International Law. What I'm here to explain to you, is that the Admiralty is totally frustrated with the embarrassing situation that our cousins have gotten us involved in. Therefore, we feel the only way to level the playing field is for Japan to deploy a Naval blockade of Shanghai in order to contain the menace of these predatory vessels. While this action will also be criticized publicly by some, the use of an illegal blockade to strangle the Yank's illegal actions will be accepted by the Admiralty as a logical reaction that does not rise to a level of action sufficiently great enough to evoke a military response from The Commonwealth Nations."

Captain Yuni thanked his guest for his back channel help with this potentially delicate situation. "And now", he said to his British guest, "let's go the bathhouse and enjoy a wonderful evening together".

At a gala diplomatic reception in a Shanghai hotel, replete with formal suits, uniforms, and gowns, Captain Mario spots the British diplomat. After some small talk, he asks to step outside into the courtyard to share a smoke. “There is someone I would like you to meet”, he says. Walking across the courtyard, past several other couples whispering their own romantic or diplomatic intrigue, Captain Mario leads the diplomat through a door into a small room without any windows. A Japanese Naval Captain arises stiffly, and gives a deep bow.

“My name is Captain Yamamoto”, the Captain says in American accented English. “I have been instructed by my superiors to thank you for the information passed to Captain Yuni in Canton. I also inform you that our colleagues in the Army have seen the wisdom of the Navy’s position, and have pledged on their honor not to enter Shanghai unless provoked. British forces in Shanghai should be safe, providing they stay in the city…”.


Dateline, Washington, DC: Closed Congressional hearings were reportedly being conducted to investigate the Coolidge Administration’s Cabinet knowledge about media statements and allegations that the USA was breaking international agreements concerning military activities in the “Open City” of Shanghai. Amongst the numerous “No comment” statements outside the hearings by the Secretaries of State, War, and the Navy; there was a perceived tone of shock and cynicism from the witnesses as they passed through the corridors on their respective way in or out of the closed hearings. Also, for the first time since the debates leading up to America’s entry into the Great War, the areas outside the Capital Building were filled with throngs of anti-war activists and protestors.

Dateline, Washington, DC: Following the confirmation of the Capital's worst kept secret ....that President Calvin Coolidge would not seek re-election to a 2nd full term later in the year, The GOP's Political Machine kicked into high gear to support The Administration's hand-picked successor, Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover. Appearing on the same dais as the President, Hoover pledged to sustain America's decade long economic prosperity by maintaining the same Pro-Business type of policies as well as more coercion of former Great War Allies to repay their war debts to America as quickly as possible.

When asked about the prosecution of the War with Japan, that was nearing it's 2 year anniversary, Hoover was quoted as saying "... Having lived in Asia for a fair part of my business life, I have a great deal of experience understanding the Asian culture and the suffering that the Chinese people have endured at the hands of the Japanese Empire. I also understand that the future of America is inexorably tied to trade and prosperity in the Far East. It will be the mission of my Administration, should I be fortunate enough to win the nomination in June in Kansas City and earn the trust of the American people in November, to fully prosecute the War against Japan in order to secure a bright future for both American and Asia."

Dateline: Washington DC. Before a closed door Senate Budgetary Hearing discussing
war-related expenditures and No-Bid Commercial Contracts for Non-USA Flagged Merchant vessels: "You see Senator," The Secretary of War replied, "we had absolutely no intention of circumventing the normal competitive bidding rules when contracting for the hauling military cargoes in the Pacific theatre when this conflict was thrust upon us. At the time, there was plenty of American-flagged commercial shipping available on both coasts to handle what was needed for the War with Japan.

Unfortunately, the heavy losses in shipping experienced in the 1st year of the conflict forced the War Department to seek-out additional shipping capacity that could not be replaced by new shipyard construction. The Administration was faced with 2 bleak choices, either we expropriate via Executive Order all merchant ships from any nation in US waters, or, we offered attractive enough lease rates to the carriers of non-belligerent nations to supplement the remaining American Merchant Marine capacity.

Based on these two unattractive options, the Administration made a decision to charter foreign-flagged vessels at rates that were deemed attractive enough to entice foreign entities to participate in the program. Hence today's request for supplemental funding to cover the unexpected costs".

"And what of America's liability for these shipping assets, should they be damaged or destroyed" the Senator from The Heartland asked.

"Because of the premium rates that are being incurred, each shipper has agreed to indemnify the USA in the event that these assets are damaged or sunk. Furthermore, all the crews have volunteered for this duty, albeit at more than three times the rate before the War with Japan", replied the Secretary of War.

"One more question, Mr Secretary. What is the flagged status of these assets when they sail with American cargoes?"

"All foreign ships signing-on under this program will be temporarily flagged with The Stars and Stripes. The US Navy will be responsible for safeguarding these ships, their contents, and their crews. This action will therefore minimize any potential
International consequences or repercussions that might occur in the event that these foreign-owned vessels are attacked by the Japanese”.

4/15/1928 Naval Battle off Soc Trang. Certainly not the most significant combat the turn, but the screenshot is cool because it involves PGs and MSWs which normally don't see action.

Although now relegated to a side show due to the landings at Shikka, what is going on in China is also a "game changer". This involves a major portion of the Allied troops which made a surprise attack across the Yangtze River back in January. It is the railroad crossing between Tsingtao, Tiensin, Nanking, and Karferig. What happened is after about four months of combat, the Japanese North China Army moved into all 6 bordering hexes, thus cutting off their retreat, and is whittling them down. China does not get many mobile units, the strategy here is to destroy them once and for all to limit China's future offensive cabability. Meanwhile, the Kwangtung Army is advancing from the south, and is now sieging Hangchow, which is along the road to Shanghai.

The ML was already damaged from an earlier engagement, and was the last ship left in Shikka harbor. I knew she was sailing into certain death, but it looked like the place was about to fall, and I figured better to go down in a blaze of glory rather then scuttled to avoid capture...

William McKenzie King, in his dual role as Prime Minister and Secretary of State for External Affairs, held a news conference today on the steps of the Parliament Building to address complaints and outrage from British Columbia regarding Merchant Ship sinkings in Provincial waters. "Recently", he began, "The pristine waters of Canada's Pacific Coast, from BC through the Northwest Territories, have become the latest casualty in the conflict between the USA and Japan. Our coastline has been inundated with oil slicks and the remains of seaman from vessels that have been sunk. For both economic and moral reasons, Canada now finds itself in a position of having to clearly communicate to all belligerents that this infringement on our sovereignty will no longer be tolerated.

Therefore, effective immediately, we are announcing the establishment of a Maritime & Economic Security Zone the entire length of our Pacific coastline in order to protect our valuable fisheries and the environment. This zone will require that all shipping transiting these water will be subject to being stopped and searched. Also, vessels will not be allowed to carry cargoes of a military nature that could subject them to attack by any belligerent nation. Furthermore, armed warships will NOT be allowed to transit through the Security Zone unless advanced permission is granted from this department. Any warships found within the Security Zone will be asked to exit the area in question, and an armed escort to open water will be provided, if necessary. His Majesty's Royal Canadian Navy stands ready to enforce this new policy with all the mean at it's disposal. Canada has also made a request for Commonwealth support and resources, and we anticipate that this request will be honored."

The Naval Battle off Iwo Jima was interesting for several reasons. For starters, the BC force actually was looking for trouble off Bonin. Failing to find anything there, they retreated to Iwo Jima, apparently arriving about the same time as the US BBs. In some ways, it was similar to the Naval Battle off August 6, 1927, in which 3 Lexington class BCs took on 2 old IJN dreadnoughts and a predreadnought.

But that’s where the similarities end. In this case, you had 2 brand new No. 13 class BCs (which I consider fast battleships) and 3 brand new DDs facing against 2 predreadnoughts. At 20 years old, the BB New Hampshire was newest predreadnought in the US fleet, but BB Oregon was one of the oldest, commissioned in 1896. The Japanese ships were brand new, none having been in commission more then 2 months, while the US ships probably had more experienced crews.

Overall, the advantage in weaponry and armor seemed to heavily favor the Japanese. So why did it take 3 rounds to sink New Hampshire and the Oregon escaped after the 4th round of combat?

While the Japanese field fearsome 18” guns which do tremendous damage when they hit, their accuracy is terrible. The 12” guns on the New Hampshire have the best accuracy, but pack about a quarter of the punch of the 18” monsters. The most accurate weapons are the torpedoes, and they are the only ones that come even close to the penetration power of the 18” rifles (even though a high percentage of the torpedoes may be duds). In the end, New Hampshire sank after being struck by 37 shells and 5 torpedoes, while Oregon escaped (only to founder 3 days later) after being struck by 33 shells and no torpedoes. Not all of the shell hits were 18”, but while those that were landed were devastating (the game lists 46cm/18” shell hits as causing the losses of both the New Hampshire and Oregon), in the end torpedoes (“the great equalizers”) decided which ship survived and which didn’t immediately after the Iwo Jima battle.

Its because of abusurd encounters like this that I occasionally rant about the disparity between US and Japanese aircraft in 1928 and 1929. Would you continue to manufacture this class of aircraft after a few encounters like this?
