My Fellow Commanders, here's the situation

After Holding Burma against the initial Japanese attack we have slowly built up a force worthy of a counter attack. It is currently March 15, 1943.

The current objective is firm from the higher ups!
1st: To attack south towards Moulmien.
2nd: After taking Moulmien we are to proceed south to Tavoy.
3rd: Following the establishment of a base at Tavoy, we are to proceed on to Mergui & cut across the peninsula toward Prachuap Khiri Khan.
This offensive is designed to give us bases closer to Bangkock, Singapore, & Saigon thus enabling future air & ground operations in the region. By doing so we will be able to bring our long range heavy bombers into range of the vital Dutch East Indies oil fields the Japs rely on for fuel and into range of Jap shipping lanes in the South China Sea. Hopefully this will all accumulate into the retaking of Singapore by our troops. Also from these bases the Higher ups wish to be able to tie down large numbers of Jap units that could be used elsewhere.

Ground Forces Available:
As of this date we have been able to muster a mixed British/Indian/Dutch force consisting of 8 full equipped divisions each averaging about 4,300 Front line troops. (2Br, 5Ind, 1Du,) Also we have been able to receive 2 fully equipped (very green) Chinese Corps consisting about 12,000 front line troops per Corps. In support of this sizable force we have 4 Arty Rgt. & 1 Armored Brg.

Air Assets:
Currently we have complete air superiority over the planed offensive region.
Air Support consistes of the following
Fighter support: 7 full eq. Sqd.
Dive Bombers for Ground attack: 6 full eq. Sqd.
Level Bombers for Ground attack: 3 full eq. Sqd plus another 10 full eq. sqd training in India around Callcuta.
Aviation support is more than efficient at both Rangoon & Pegu air bases, so our squadron can operate at there maximum efficiency.

Naval Support:
Virtually no Naval support is available in the region, so don't count on receiving any help from the Royal Navy, except a couple Heavy Cruisers and Destroyers from Coloumbo for possible bombardment sorties. (That's if their not enjoying their rum rations too much!)

Our forces are well stocked, Rangoon currently has 266,629 supplies, with another 50,000+ plus incoming from Cape town. Our supply lines are well established and our units have plenty of support from our numorus BF in Rangoon & Pegu.

Aerial Recon and Intel shows around 64,000 enemy troops, 384 guns, & 80 AFV based in and around Moulmien. Also another 22,000 enemy troops have been reported to be just north-east of Moulmien, about 96 miles east of Pegu based in the Jungle under "poor supply"

Well that's it Gentlemen, the date to start this operation is scheduled for May 1, 1943. I'm looking forward to all the plans & suggestions you draw up for this offensive. Once we have looked over options of how to proceed I'll pick the most viable battle plan & send it up the chain of command for final aprovement.

Thanks at now we've got plenty of work to do, so lets get cracking!!!

Wait until Aug 1945, then nuke them.


Occasionally, and randomly, problems and solutions collide. The probability of these collisions is inversely related to the number of committees working on the solutions. -- Me.
