In an unnamed European capital, a pair of "unofficial" envoys from the USA and Japan discuss the ongoing war:

Japan will consider a peace treaty which will include returning the entire Philippines to American protection in return for the following:

Withdrawal from Sakhalin, the 3 nearby "Jimas", the Bonin Group and Pagan Island with control returned to Japan.

An absolute, rock-solid 10-year guarantee that the US will not attack Japan or its past, present, and future possessions or armed forces, and that aid to Japan's enemies (present and future) will be discontinued.

All offensive US and Japanese aircraft (LB, TB, FB) between hex columns 37 and 84 will set their ranges to 0, and no minelaying will be conducted, unless there is a conflict in close proximity with another power. A joint "reconciliation and mediation board" will be established at an agreed upon location to supervise the withdrawal of forces and mediate any incidents which hopefully will not occur.

The "unofficial" diplomat cautions that time and secrecy are of essence, because the military, particularly the Imperial Army, may react very negatively if these generous terms are leaked out.


The US envoy replies that no peace settlement can be considered without including the Dutch.

The Japanese emissary turns ashen white for a moment, then composes himself and says. "My patron anticipated that the Americans may wish to include the Dutch, and we are prepared to discuss them, too. Indeed, they continue to fight far more valiantly then we anticipated and it is honorable for America not to abandon them.

The situation with the Dutch East Indies is far more complex, but we will agree in principle to withdraw from there if the same mutual guarantees and safeguards we are asking from the Americans be extended to them, too. However, due to our need for resources, we will ask for the following amendments -

Dutch political control and governance be returned to the territory overall.

The Japanese will continue to maintain a token presence on areas it now controls in Java, Sumatra, and Borneo for the next 10 years. We ask for this due to the major disparity between Japan's resource supply and demand. Within 10 years we anticipate our gains in China will be sufficiently developed, and we will leave the entire East Indies in peace. As tokens of Japan's good will, we will revert to calling the area "the Dutch East Indies", and drop any further use of the term "Indonesia" or claims of it being part of the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere. To alleviate any fears the Dutch may have, we will also agree to the USA maintaining a similar presence in areas it now controls in Borneo, Sulawesi, and New Guinea, with joint withdrawal in 10 years.

Neither the USA or Japan will conduct offensive operations against each other, the Dutch, or any other power. Defensive operations would be allowed, of course".


Despite rumors in the press of secret armistice negotiations, Democrats quickly dismissed the speculation as GOP antics going into the Fall Elections.

Also, at an obscure European Diplomatic posting, a new line of direct contact was opened between the respective combatants at a yet higher level of the Diplomatic Food Chain.

Taking his instructions from the State Department, a Senior Diplomat had the following discussion with his Japanese guest: "Alright then, it looks like our discussion is now the lead diplomatic initiative now being explored. And what I'm about to share with you has been approved at the highest level, including lead members of the opposition party in the US Senate who would have to approve the terms of any Treaty that might be negotiated. The USA and Holland are prepared to accept the terms outline so far by Japan, but the formerly controlled USA possessions of Batan Island, Guam, and Wake Island must also be transferred back to the American control. As a gesture of goodwill, the Administration is prepared to leave the substantial quantities of bunker fuel oil stocks behind on presently occupied territories that will ultimately be returned to the possession of the Japanese Empire. Furthermore, the Dutch are prepared to enter into long-term commercial agreements with Japan for the supply of fuel oil for a minimum 10 year period. Joint commercial opportunities for USA-Japan cooperation in regard to the Elk Hills Oil resources in California, at market prices, remain something that the Administration would not stand in the way of.

As another sign of goodwill, In terms of mainland Asia, the USA will rescind all previous agreements that call for the presence of USA Military forces. What this means is that once the safe passage of land forces has been achieved, the US will agree to fully withdrawal all naval units from the Asian mainland. As this move could precipitate an angry reaction from the Nationalist Chinese Forces, this will have to remain a secret treaty protocol until all USA forces and commercial possessions are discreetly drawn down.


The Japanese diplomat replies “OK, most of this sounds good. Just so we’re clear, in terms of territorial readjustment we’re talking about Japan completely withdrawing from the Phillipines, and the smaller islands of the Dutch East Indies. The exception is the remaining Japanese and forces on Java, Sumatra, and Borneo, and American forces on Borneo, Sulawesi, and New Guinea will withdraw in 10 years. The US will withdraw from Sakhalin, the 3 Jimas, the Bonin Group, and Pagan Island, as well as discretely remove forces from the Asian mainland.

“Regarding Batan, Guam, and Wake, the simple answer is Japan can consider withdrawing from those territories in exchange for the return of Eniwetok, Satawal, and Woleai to our Empire. But consider this: we understand the USA needs coaling stations between Hawaii and the Philippines. Would you consider swapping Wake and Guam for Batan, Eniwetok, Satawal, and Woleai? This will give you the coaling network you need to reach the Philippines, as well as give you easier access to the Dutch East Indies. Also, passing through the southern periphery of the Japanese Empire rather then right through the middle of it will reduce the likelihood of unfortunate incidents. And, of course, both sides will be able to claim they made territorial gains as a result of this war. We’ll wait if you need to consult with your government on this”.

"Very well my friend" said the Senior USA Diplomat. "I will pass your communiqué along to the State Department. However, I must caution you that the possible renunciation of American interests in China is a very delicate topic, to say the least. This will surely been seized-upon by the opposition party as a perk or reward to Japan for initiating hostilities to begin with. Therefore, the retention of potential coaling stations now under American control, in the Marianas, Carolines, and Mandate territories is the minimum gesture that Japan should consider for initiating the conflict in which we now find ourselves. Regardless, I will pass your response along to my superiors. Hopefully our leaders will find it within their respective means to resolve these matters at the earliest opportunity to do so. Good night my friend".

“Well, it sounds like we’re almost there”, replies the Japanese diplomat. Two things must be made clear, however: While we realize that the offer for joint commercial opportunities in a California oil field was made with the utmost sincerity by the United States, it is our desire to no longer be dependent upon outside oil exports for our survival. This is why we are requesting a presence in the Dutch East Indies for the next decade – we forecast by 1938 we will have sufficiently developed the Chinese oilfields now under our control and will no longer have to rely upon anyone. For this reason, the US offer to withdraw from mainland Asia is of great value to us, and we thank you for that.

We have six Pacific islands or atolls which we need to find some middle ground on. We can see ceding the three southern islands that the Americans captured, or trading them for the return of Wake, Guam, and Batan. But considering the reaction, quite possibly violent, we can expect from the Imperial Army once this agreement becomes known, we need the Navy’s support if it is to have any hope of success. While I may understand the American need for a “gesture”, ending the war with less Pacific territory then we started by ceding all six islands to the USA will most certainly play the Navy into the Army’s hands, in which case these negotiations will become purely academic. Please consider these things as I bid you good night”.

"As the Senior Diplomat for this initiative, I will communicate your invaluable perspective to Washington with the highest level of urgency and secrecy. There are only 15 or 16 individuals, including President Coolidge, who have knowledge of this activity and that includes those encoding and transmitting the information. Please do not confuse any delay in our response as anything other than the nature of this rather clandestine effort. Personally, I don't believe that we would look upon the islands of Woloeai, Satawal, and Eniwetok as anything resembling a strategic interest to the United States, so the long-term control of these islands is something that is open for discussion. However, the US Navy and the Army have made substantial capital and physical improvements in the island of Pagan where virtually nothing existed previously. Given the very isolated nature of the island of Guam, I can see where the Secretary of War will be very keen to maintain possession of Pagan as a bull work against any future encroachment on the island of Guam. Naturally, these are only my own personal opinions and I cannot present them to you as Government policy at this point in the process...... I hope you understand".

The Japanese diplomat replies that delays are understandable; we are both very far from our respective capitals. However, we are a bit confused on the US stance on Pagan Island. While we are aware of the improvements the US has made to the island, so too have improvements been made on Wake, Guam, and other territories that are now under Japanese control. We could consider swapping Pagan for Guam – this could reduce the likelihood of unfortunate incidents by putting some distance between Japanese and US possessions in the area while maintaining a US coaling station in the area.

At a non-de script neutral location in an obscure European Capital City, the drama continues" Well, my friend..... it appears that we have a potentially significant problem that has developed over the past several days in regard to our previous discussion which has nothing to do with the status of that "whatever in God's named Island" near the Mariana's. The problem is much more substantive in nature and has the potential to derail all the discussions to date between Imperial Japan, the USA, and Holland. The dilemma is about FRANCE, or in particular, WHAT TO DO ABOUT FRENCH INDOCHINA? Any agreement that seeks to restore peace in the region must address this matter. So as a Diplomat, and an advocate of peaceful relations between nations, I've been challenged to explain how any peace initiative will address the interests of France. So I must ask you to the pass along the same question to your Government....... What about France?"

The Japanese diplomat shrugs his shoulders. “I don’t know, perhaps you can tell me what’s going on with France. They’re your allies, and I would think that they know the USA is talking to us on your own behalf as well as Holland’s. The Dutch have been your loyal ally and are a minor power, so the USA speaking on their behalf certainly is honorable. But France has been a Great Power for centuries. One would think if they had an interest in making peace with us, they are more then capable of doing so on their own, don’t you think? So where are they? I don’t see them here, and for that matter we haven’t had any contact with them, diplomatic or militarily, for nearly a year. We’ll talk to them if and when they wish, but in the meantime we are here now. Shall we continue our progress or will more American, Dutch, and Japanese young men die thousands of miles away from an abandoned French colony?”

A fly on the wall was witness to the following diplomatic exchange" "My Dear Friend, you could not possibly imagine the ebbs and flow over the past 5 days since our last meeting that occurred when our Ambassador and his Dutch counterpart met with the French Foreign Minister to pass along the details of the proposals that we had previously discussed. After what's been described to me as the most severe tongue lashing ever unleashed upon supposed "Allies", the French actually broke diplomatic relations, temporarily, with both of us and even threatened to declare war on us due to the need to recover "French Honor" for neglecting to seek their advise and counsel. Fortunately, cooler heads eventually prevailed after a delay of 48 hours allowing for the expected cross-Atlantic telegrams that allowed for hurt feelings to be patched-up. So here we are, meeting again.

I am pleased to report that the French Republic would be pleased to join these discussions, in a Senior role befitting of France's place among nations of course, only upon receiving a positive goodwill gesture from the Emperor. They request the immediate lifting of the Japanese Naval and air blockade of the French Indochina Army currently residing on the Island fortress of Soc Trang, near Saigon. The French have contracted with the International Red Cross for a shipment of non-lethal humanitarian supplies of food and medicine from the Crown Colony of Singapore to Soc Trang via an unarmed convoy of six (6) small coastal freighters. It is only by this measure that the starvation of the remaining French forces can be avoided. No evacuation of forces will be allowed, and the Governor of the Crown Colony will be required to certify that they shipment is free of goods of war. A representative of the Emperor's Government would be allowed to make a final inspection of the cargo before it leaves Singapore, if it was requested. It is only after this accommodation is made that the French Republic will agree to join these settlement discussions. Therefore, in the interest of those seeking to end this conflict, we implore the Japanese Government to make this concession to the French as they have requested"


“Well, we certainly weren’t aware that the French were upset with you or the Dutch”, says the Japanese diplomat. “Since we appear to control the waters there, how about if we ship the supplies to Soc Trang? Our other question would be how does the French entry into these talks affect the progress we have already made? To be blunt, we haven’t seen any serious military effort by France to retake the colony for nearly a year. There is a reason why the language of diplomacy is French, they have been doing it quite well since long before either of our two countries became prominent on the world stage. I would think keeping us fighting would be in their strategic interest. The question, therefore, is continuing this war for Indochina’s sake within America’s interest?”

"My friend, the French Foreign Minister has accepted your offer of humanitarian assistance and will have the International Red Cross provide you with the minimum expected list of supplies that will be required of them, of which 100% (20,000 units) will be expected by the Soc Trang garrison within a fortnight. Anything less than the required amount will not be acceptable to them. What that means, my friend, is that not only will France refuse to participate in the peace process, but they have threatened to do everything in their power to sabotage the process by leaking the nature of these secret discussions to the World Press and, ultimately, to hardliners within all our respective Governments. Thereby ensuring continued fighting and conflict among nations. The arrogance of these latecomers to the Peace process is appalling to the US and Dutch Governments. However, you must agree that they could be more dangerous outside the peace process than as a member of the effort. We implore the Emperor to cooperate with their request for either aid or a lifting of the sea/air blockade to Soc Trang so that neutral shipping could be engaged to meet the French requirements".

The Japanese diplomat replies, “First of all, I don’t think there is a single garrison in the world which requires 20,000 supply units, so the offer on its own accord is outrageous. It would appear that the French are proving to be very untrustworthy allies, doing little to support your fight with us, and then trying to sabotage your efforts to end it. I could have arranged for a ship or two to discretely sail past Soc Trang and have an ‘accident’ requiring dropping their entire load overboard in water tight containers as the tide went in, but this request would require around eighty ships! Of course, a peace treaty would have allowed them to send all of the supplies in the world to Soc Trang themselves, but I have a feeling they know this already.

“Personally, I am not as concerned by the French demands as they probably wish me to be, as I have very little to lose at this point. My government will discover what we are doing sooner or later anyhow, what difference does it make how they find out? I am certainly not an expert on Americans, but we have several in our number who attended your colleges and academies, and they tell me that Americans do not suffer others trying to control their nation’s destiny very well. One of them also said I should give you a quote from one of your past Presidents, I’m ashamed to say I can’t remember his name even though he told me, about Americans not entering into entangling foreign alliances? How will your people react if the French triumphantly declare that your government was within a few islands of an honorable peace settlement, only to have it stolen from them? I beg you to sleep on this, my friend. You know where to find me”.

The next morning, an American agent reports he followed the Japanese envoy and his youngest aide to the train station hours after the meeting. He witnessed an emotional embrace before the aide boarded the train, holding a briefcase. The envoy then stoically returned to his hotel after the train left – for Switzerland.

Also, Diplomatically speaking, after a delay of several days the Senior US Diplomat met again with his Japanese partner for peace. "My friend, I think we all can understand how frustrated all of us are with the French, however there must have been an error on my part communicating the supply needs for the Soc Trang Garrison. What is required to bring the French to the bargaining table should be easily accommodated on six (6) small coastal steamers (2500 x 6) and it is President Coolidge's desire to see to it that the French get their damn supplies in order to engage them and resolve this conflict once and for all. We believe that their threat's are nothing more than sore gamesmanship for having been ignored by the Administration in the 1st place. President Coolidge wants them at the bargaining table without further delay, and discreetly for now if possible but in the open if necessary."

He continued, "It is the President's desire to wrap this conflict up via negotiations, if possible, before the 10th anniversary of the Armistice of the Great War. He believes that the powerful symbolism of that seminal war and event will be powerful enough to overcome hardliners in any Government. Basically, Mr. Coolidge would like to characterize this war as "a dust-up among Allies of the Great War". He hopes that The Emperor will share his vision and facilitate the representation of all the World's Great Powers (sans the Soviets, of course) to the bargain table. Yes, the French are insufferable, but they will not go away and they can cause various types of trouble for each of us, Militarily, Politically, and Culturally. Let us rise above the pettiness of The French and target 11/11/1928 as the final date that this unfortunate war could possibly end by, I can quote The President directly. Please pass this personal note from him to His Majesty"


The Japanese envoy pauses. “Well, we can certainly see the symbolism of having the conflict end by the 10th anniversary of the Great War. As for the French, I can try to pull some stings to have some offshore drop-offs, the way I described earlier, occur. Understand, of course, I may not be able to get six ships to sail together, that would raise too many suspicions. We do have a high-level contact within the government who may have some influence over the Emperor. We’ll forward your President’s message to the Emperor to him”.

Dateline Washington, DC: President Coolidge's Chief of Staff ushers into the Oval Office Vice-President, and Republican Presidential Nominee, Herbert Hoover for a meeting with the President. "They're been some new developments in regard to the Administration's peace-feelers to the Japanese that the President would like to discuss with you", he said. "Please take a seat, the President will see you shortly"

Meanwhile, half a world away, the US envoy sits down with his Japanese counterpart in an after hours smoking lounge. The first thing he notices was the young aide who was last seen boarding a train is sitting quietly in a corner of the room, furthest from the door. The second is the Japanese envoy seems unusually animated. “Ah, sit down, sit down my friend”, he says. “First of all, I have contacted one of my contacts in the Imperial Navy. Ships should dump supplies off Soc Trang by the end of September, probably not all at once. They will contact me when the mission is completed, and I will convey it to you. Now,” he says, pausing to take a breath, “I have received a communiqué through, shall we say, discrete channels. I will translate the telegram in English – ‘Emperor wishes for negotiations to continue. Maintain secrecy. Convey his message of good will to President Coolidge’”. Pausing to take a breath, the Japanese envoy then says “So, what shall we talk about?”

On the Diplomatic Front, the Lead Senior US Diplomat met again with his Japanese counterpart, but his time he unexpectedly brought a guest in hopes of furthering the discussions. "Please let me introduce USN Captain Phelps, the Senior Naval Attaché on the Continent who has been fully briefed and is here at the invitation of President Coolidge. With your permission, Captain Phelps, albeit in his civilian clothing to maintain confidentiality, is here because he is much better qualified than I to discuss detailed Military matters..."

With no objection from the Japanese Diplomat, Captain Phelps begins to ask a series of hypothetical questions concerning the matters that had been previously discussed: "Mr. Ambassador, if I may be so bold as to assume for the moment that there is a general agreement among all parties as to the desirability of reaching a peace agreement of some type. If that is so, than I would like to speak to what might happen next in the process, and we'd ask that you pass along these concepts and ideas to your Government and Military leaders to gauge their interest. What the USA, as the lead negotiator would like to consider is the "How" of ending hostilities.... in other words what options might we all consider that they're could be 100% agreement upon. We would consider that a good start, as they say. Because of the inherently complex nature of a "Final Settlement", whatever form that might take, we envision a series of half-measures designed to demonstrate good faith and goodwill that might be described as confidence building measures. These might include the following:

(1) A cease-fire in place, with final borders and territory to be negotiated after the cessation of hostilities

(2) If not a cease-fire, than perhaps a temporary restriction on offensive activities within 200 km of the Mainland of Japan and the North American Continent (including Alaska and the Aleutians)

(3) Elimination of all offensive naval or air activities beyond 200 km or more from existing occupied territories.

(4) Sequestering of all submarines in friendly port facilities for a 30 - 60 day period while negotiations continue, thus avoiding a main source of potentially re-igniting of the conflict.

(5) Free passage of supplies and fuel to friendly bases as long as no land forces, aircraft, or men-o-war are present. Such shipments should make every effort to avoid coming within 200 km of enemy territory in order to avoid an incident of any kind.

(6) Whatever other ideas the Japanese Government would have us consider


The Japanese envoy replies “A cease-fire would certainly be desirous. What needs to be worked out, however, is the status of current conflict zones. For instance, right now we detect a large garrison on Sakhalin and several Jimas. Would a cease-fire mean these garrisons be resupplied and reinforced? Similarly, we currently have troops committed on Bonin, in defense of our Home Islands, while a US build-up is obviously occurring there. The US controls the port, and the area is heavily mined. Would a cease-fire mean we abandon these defenders, while the US troops there are resupplied and reinforced? These are our primary concerns regarding a cease-fire, which makes me wonder if we should move straight to working out a permanent settlement.”

After politely asking the Naval Attaché to excuse himself from the Diplomatic phase of the discussion, the Senior US Diplomat closed the door securely to make sure that he and his Japanese counterpart could speak frankly to each other without being overheard. "I asked Capt. Phillips to excuse us because of the regrettable position that you've force upon me." He continued, "In all my years of experience in the Field of Diplomacy I have never been witness to such an act of cynicism and deceit that you and your Government have presented here tonight. He were are, the United States of America, coming to you in as transparent a manner as possible trying to sort of the details of how a disengagement of our forces might be effected as part of a more comprehensive peace settlement. We have even offered territorial and policy inducements to Japan in our previous discussions in order to incent your country to accept a negotiated settlement to a War that your country started in an unprovoked and dastardly manner. The entire World, other than a few warloads in China and Manchuria on Japan's payroll, has recognized Imperial Japan as the aggressor nation in this conflict. Yet, you come here unprepared to offer any type of incentive to the USA and it's Allies to seek peace. No original ideas or novel suggestions to help restore the World's hope for peace. What, Sir, is Japan prepared to do to head-off a final conclusion of this war that will produce death and destruction on a wide scale? Where are your ideas? You are the country that started this war, and it is within your power to end it, but it will take more than reciprocal Diplomatic demands and pressure on the USA. There is an overwhelming preponderance of opinion on both the Right and the Left in my country that Japan's wonton aggression must be dealt with severely regardless of the cost and consequences. What your Militarists don't understand is that an isolationist and peaceful Democracy, once riled-up, is a most formidable enemy to deal with. The onus, Mr. Ambassador, is now clearly on Japan. Either you come back to these discussions next time prepared to engage us in a fully prepared manner, or I have been empowered to tell you and your Emperor to Go To Hell".

The Japanese envoy gives a quizzical look for a moment, then asks “Really? What is it you’ve never experienced? Are you new to this job?” The young aide urgently says something in Japanese, leading to a 10 second long rapid exchange in that language. The envoy then puts his hand up and says, in English. “Enough, I understand now”.

Turning to the US envoy he icily says “You’ll have to excuse me, I wasn’t aware that you were insulting me, my nation, and my Emperor until it was explained to me”. As the US envoy starts to open his mouth, the Japanese counterpart raises his hand and says “You’ve had your say, now I will have mine. I have no issue with your bringing a military attaché to these negotiations, but I do not feel it is the best use of our time for me to have to re-explain to him the position which we have already discussed at length. That is your job, not mine. We have bargained in good faith, and come up with what we feel is extremely generous terms. So generous in fact, that more than likely I will not be able to return to Japan if it becomes reality. I’ll put this to you very simply, so that there’s no chance of a misinterpretation due to the language barrier – if you want peace with us, then let’s talk peace, and act like gentlemen, not cowboys. If you want war with us, then we’ll just continue doing what we are doing right now. Well, that’s not exactly true, we will make sure that the entire world knows how close we were to peace, only to have it squandered. I’m sure Mr. Hoover and those families who will receive Western Union telegrams will especially appreciate that. All we’re interested in talking to you about is peace, and if that’s not enough of an incentive or as you say ‘good will’, then I guess we overestimated your honorable intentions. We’re no more interested in some farcical ‘half measure’ which will basically amount to our remaining at war but not shooting at each other long enough for you to reinforce your garrisons close to our Home Islands, then we were six years ago when your nation made the absurd suggestion that we willingly turn half our Combined Fleet into artificial reefs.

“We have stated our position clearly. If you have a counter proposal, let’s hear it. The shooting will stop when peace is declared. You know how to find me. Give my warmest regards to Mr. Coolidge, and be sure to mention if peace is his true intention then perhaps he should reconsider his choice for an envoy. Good day sir”.

A public announcement was posted in the Society Section of the principle newspapers of a sleepy European Capital City that mentioned the "Regretful postponement" of the previously scheduled Wild West-themed Ball at the American Embassy later that week. The reason given was a scheduling conflict for the US Ambassador and his Wife, who were on their way to Cherbourg to catch a White Star Liner in order to attend a Campaign-related event in Washington DC benefiting Vice-President Hoover.

In Washington, DC: The press reports rumors of deep conflict within the present & presumptive Cabinet members of the outgoing/incoming Administration, should Mr. Hoover win election, concerning the future path forward with the War in the Far East. Secretary Kellogg (State) and Secretary Davis (War) apparently have quite different ideas and suggestions to both Mr. Coolidge and Mr. Hoover at this time. Nothing specific or quotable was available for print at this time.

September 17, 1928: AMCs attack US shipping off the US West Coast. This is part of a Japanese campaign involving numerous AMCs and some submarines.

Washington DC's Press Corps is going crazy trying to squeeze out information from their normally reliable sources. The Coolidge White House and Cabinet has been locked-down and out of sight. Although, there are rumors of Senior Diplomats in transit back to DC from their posts overseas in order to help the Administration plan on a path forward for winning and/or ending the War in the Far East.
