hades1001,

I too am in mid 1943 (July) in a PBEM and am finding it a very exciting time. I look forward to reading your AAR.

Will your IJ opponent be putting one together from his perspective? As that is my traditional focus, I'd appreciate that as well.

Good luck!

Chickenboy, welcome aboard :)

Unfortunately my opponent won't because he doesn't handle English very well. As a non English speaker my English sucks too but at least I can write a little:)

To put it simple, I'm facing a similar situation as GJ had back in 43 but mine is even worse.

So it would be very interesting and challenging to continue the game.

Please jumping in time to time and you advice will be well appreciated.

Japs start to attack Bandoeng! They suffered over 7,000 casualties when Allied suffered 5,000. The losses of the winning side is really huge.

With the first failed attack at Bandoneng, my opponent didn't try another one. Instead he pull out most of his troops and maneuvered to surrounded Bandoney, so my troops can't move anywhere and Bandoeng become a giant POW for 50,000 Allied troops....

It's a very smart move. He use the troop to take the rest of Java, which is undefended. And then continue his attack on other places.

Japanese invaded India. They took Colombo first then Calicut then Mangalore. It's so early that I barely have and resources to defend my self. During my lack of experience I didn't bring man US air groups to India and I brought most assets from DEI to Australia.

My 3 carriers made a try to intercept Japanese convoys but was spotted 1 day earlier, and KB is nearby so I chose to retreat.

I borrowed a few pic from my opponent and hope you won't get confused by the language. :)

North Philippine was totally bypassed and my major airfields there were visited regularly by Jap Navy and Army bombers since the first day of war.

Thus I can't use the airfields there to inflict some damage to Japs. And I don't know I can use Catalina as torpedo bombers at that time.

By bypassing Philippine Japs saved many months thus they can invade India in such an early in the war. And at this time allied defense in India is really, really weak.

Championzhao use paras to take empty India bases/dots and then strategy move his divisions in. He moves north along west coast of India as well as east coast. Now he is not far from Bombay and Calcutta.

I pulled out the scattered troops to prevent them being surrounded. I decided to set up my first defense line at Delhi. I was totally unprepared for this early attack and there is nothing in India can be called a defense line yet. Plus I have very limited British and Indian troops on hand and can't afford to defend everywhere.

Japanese is still moving north with para+strategy move, they are getting close to Delhi now.

With the HR of 4E bombing at 20,000 ft I found it useless in most of the previous battles. That's why I keep on the ground until finally a clear comes. A few of Japanese planes were torched on the ground.

Bombay was evacuated before Japs coming because I believed that even Bombay has a *4 defense bonus, the supply situation and Japanese Naval Bombardment will make it hard to maintain a large garrison there. Plus I don't have many troops to spare and my main goal is to save Karachi.

Bombay falls after the first attack.

Mar 6, 42 - Mar 11, 42

Championzhao crossed the Line of Death by accident and it gave us some extra time and resources to defend India!

It would be a problem to transport these troops to Karachi thought because the sea was controlled by Jap KB and SCTF. My carriers went back to Sydney to support my Solomon campaign already and there is not much I can do in India now.

XXI Indian Corps arrives at Aden
6th Indian Division arrives at Abadan
10th Indian Division arrives at Aden
Waziristan Division arrives at Karachi
31st Armoured Division arrives at Aden
8th Indian Division arrives at Aden
Emergency Convoy Supply Convoy arrives at Aden
5th Indian Division arrives at Aden
XXI Corps Engineer Battalion arrives at Aden


Intelligence shows that Championzhao concentrated hundreds of engineer squads in Surat and its airfield is growing fast! Apparently it will become the major airbase for Japan in India Campaign.

The legendary Guadalcanal Campaign goes very unlike the historical campaign though. The famous Henderson airfield was totally destroyed by Betties and my engineers can't fix it right away. This is the first time I noticed that after a major bombing action it took the engineer units 2-3 days before they start to repair the runway. Their disruption will reach 70+ after the bombing. And I can't repair all the damaged planes at Lunga. So, after day 1 Allied lost the control of the sky....
