AI or Human? How to fight against a human is well covered in the After Action Reports. Take your pick I'd suggest one of Canoerebals current or old. I'm not saying he's the best Allied player, but he is the wordiest

The advice holds. If you are playing against a human the AAR's are the best place to start or start your own. You will get tons of advise, some of it even good. If you are playing against the AI just say so and we got lots of advise for that too. Welcome.

How to fight?

Hmmm...

1) Don't fight when you are really drunk

2) Don't fight some guy who has the same tatoos as half the guys in the establishment.

3) Don't fight some guy with traps that slope down to his shoulders.

4) Don't fight some guy with a UFC championship ring

Come to think of it...it is probably just a bad idea altogether.

The man asked to buy a manual. I smell a commercial opportunity here.

Cheers,

The best way to learn IMHO, is to read the AARs and simply play

I have made month-long AAR for new players wanting to get into Grand Campaign first time vs. Japanese AI:

It is not meant to be definitive guide, but it will give you some ideas what you need to consider.

Against the AI you need only survive the first 6 months in decent shape and you will know everything you have to about the game. Without giving anything away a couple of genreal things to know:
You will take a beating
you will lose lots of stuff
Protect your carriers, they won't be much use to you the first 6 months so preserve them
don't waste carrier aircraft on silly missions in the beginning of the war. You will be short of everything, but really short of carrier aircraft.
Preserve your TK's and AO's. You can get some fuel out of the DEI, but those tankers are best protected to bring fuel from the west coast, middle east and cape town
escort you shipping
build bases for and logistics for late 42. If your carefull you will be able to give the AI a bloddy nose by then
ship fuel to bases
learn seach arcs
learn pilot training. Train at range 0 or 1 to prevent ops losses
learn political points
start to "prep" you units for the future. When a new unit shows up, think about where you want it to be in 3 months
learn "modes". Nothing as usless as a bunch of engineer units building nothing because they got left in strategic mode.
Find the Flying Tigers (AVG) and get them out of where they are becuase that base will change hands and you will lose them
Don't try and counter all the Japanese moves. In fact, don't try to counter most of them. The beginning is an onslaught
Don't roll over entirely, pick a place to fight and try to make a stand
Check you taskforces "at sea" at the beginning of the game. They might be sending troops to a bad place.
Build bases, build fuel reserves, build supplies. Use history as a general guide to where
You were surprised once. Be careful to not be supprised again
You have big repair yards on the west coast. If a captial ship can make it there, send it ther for repair
maybe try "Quite China" to start
altitude is life. Get those figters as high as you can
You will get more of everything, much more

There are multiple full scenarios in the game, one of them offers a "quiet China"option where the AI largly ignores China.

And of course, go to the opponent's wanted forum and advertise for an opponent of the same skill level as you are and have at it. There is no substitute for on the job training...

China is important but if it is your campaign game against the AI "Quite china" will allow you to concentrate on the other theaters where more of the detail of the game is. I'm sure I'll get some flack here but the war will not be won, or lost, in China. China is primarily a land war. The other theaters are more balanced and you will have much, much more opportunity to learn the air and naval portion of the game.
