Would an Aleutians feint help at all, say one week before the DEI invasion? Just throwing it out there...
don't have the resources to open another front now. I'm concentrating everything in India - Solomons - NG/Southern DEI and northern Oz theatres...
It doesnt have to be OVERLORD, just movement of shipping and recon by LR bombers, get him thinking. Even a Bn reoccupying an empty island gets bells ringing.
sleepy turns... march 4th 1944....my CVs are at melbourne, escorting a big convoy with 2 US Corps (4 divisions) and several support units to Perth...
As I've once run into KB south of Perth, maybe a train trip would have been more resting for the troops
In India tomorrow we'll conquer Bombay and we'll start to recon Burma from Ansalon...
In SOPAC we have just started to recon Truk from Panggoe...the KB isn't there nor at Rabaul...
...soon we'll have some actions...it seems that he's not fully aware of my moves in northern OZ....
Given your losing KB, this seems an odd statement?
I know but those troops were being moving from Ndeni...and those ships are anyway needed at Perth so i decided not to lose time to stop at Sydney to unload, pack and send them and to go directly towards Perth...don't think the KB will show up there after the recent defeats...and if it dares...oh, well, the better! At perth i have 450 fighters and 300 bombers and my 10 CVs are right there with the ships...
My statement is because he has placed 900 fighters at Rabaul, along with 500 bombers...if he was aware of my ideas i bet he would start to move some of them to Timor and Kendari area at least... while he keeps on focusing on the Solomons
Our recons in Burma confirm that his 500k troops are moving towards Mandalay...
We reached the 8th of March 1944...sleepy sleepy turns...we sunk an xAK today in the bay of Bengal...empty
