End of May, 1943

another enemy operation to take PM failed again. His initial troops took the road up to Wau, and most of my units were in hot pursuit of them. In the meantime some FT TFs tried to bring in fresh troops to PM. But I had kept back a guard force for such a case, and hurried an additional regiment to the scene. They made short work of the invaders...
Most of the UNS ships sunk, since all of them ate about half a dozen mines each... Approx. five cruisers and ten DDs reported sunk...



VP: 14870 vs. 6550


Allied ships lost:

CV - 3
CVE - 2
CA - 6
CL - 5
DD - 53
SS - 27
DMS - 5
MSW - 13
PT - 40
SC/PG - 44
AP/AK - 80
TK - 3
APD - 12
DM - 4
barges - 18


own losses of the IJN so far:

MSW - 2
SS - 11
AP - 9
barges - 9

The IJN Flotilla continued their Combat Patrol along the coast of OZ. Finding nothing the fleet started East hoping to pick off some ships in New Hebrides Islands. Some IJN search aircraft spotted a few Allied TKs making their slow pathetic way into Brisbane. You know the IJN wanting to practice their skills moved into range... spending way too much time near Brisbane and scoring some shots on Tankers, they decided a port bombardment task force would be good for morale. They sent in all their BBs and CAs... really not a big deal since Brisbane has very little to offer...

Meanwhile, the Allied Command in Townsville decided that all the Troops Transports and Fast Transports were going to make another run into PM... How could the IJN not know that the entire Allied Fleet is anchored in Townsville??? This is completely unconventional, but these as desperate times and unconventional is what the Allied Command needs.

The strangest things happen during these next few turns...
The IJN move at max speed North between PM and GG hoping to catch some transports with their fatigued pilots... UH!!! OH!!! the Allied CV Fleet is in the middle of the transports and escorted by every CLAA, BB and CA and all the P-38s flying LRCAP from Cooktown... IJN CVs hit and retreating from the Coral Sea... Allied CVs never got touched...

Here is the combat results of this interesting turn... Ralf will post his results I am sure...

David forgot to mention that most of his invasion fleet is already sunk or about to be...

Though I must admit the CV battle was not as hoped for, I kept my entire force in the area to crush the allied invasion. The 15K+ mines did their own work... Furthermore, I sent in some strong naval groups which made short work of the remnants. All USN minesweepers went down, what gives very dark prospects for any future landings.
A/C losses quite heavy on both sides.

But I guess I can repel also the 3rd try for PM. Even if not, there is nothing left for the Allied command to supply this spot...

another bloody day went by... The carriers fight each other without any result other than killing A/C in dozens. In the meantime my surface forces rush into PM, destroying everything afloat there.

The enemy losses in transports and men must be tremendous. The waters in the harbour of Port Moresby are coloured deep red already...

thru some secret diplomatic channels we get the impression the Allies are ripe for peace now... Its been said they´re about to concede defeat and that the US government as well as the United Kingdom aren´t willing to commit any more forces into this sinkhole. Obviously the losses in ships were far to excruciating to bear. Though the output of the allied wharfes is still increasing, their whole effort will now be directed against Hitler´s Nazi realm.

We´re looking forward to a very nice future down in the Nanyo-Cho... without any further disturbances from foreign advisors...
