This was a long time coming. It is turn 2 of the revised 6A test which saw the fleet sail from Oahu. This didn't turn out at all like I expected. KB was ordered to stay and hit enemy ships at sea with airplanes, but in the event ran for home. Halsey appears to have taken over the game for his own glory and managed a carrier battle just as he intended IRL, never mind Mifune didn't try for one. The retreating KB and Allied carrier forces reacted into each other.

Otherwise, Asiatic Fleet had a field day - never mind it hasn't even been able to assemble yet. So did submarines, on both sides. B-17s apparently can't hit the broadside of a barn, but ancient Vildebeeste's can. And a shock attack on Japanese airborn at 51:1 odds failed to wipe out the tiny element at Baguio immediately - although lacking supplies attrition will in due course. In general, this is a good demonstration of the offensive defensive and the potential for the Allies even in December, 1941 - in the context of overwhelming regional force superiority which has too much momentum to stop in the SRA.

Maybe Lexington too - Japanese combat reports say she is gone - as well as Repulse
and 5 BB. But in fact Prince of Wales was scuttled on day 2, Repulse on day 3,
and the other "sinkings" near Pearl Harbor (ships at sea that were in savage fighting
on the first day) probably haven't happened yet (unless a ship flooded out or burned
out). There was a lot of action involving smaller ships today as well as a "carrier
battle" between what remains of Halseys force (they managed to sortee 3 SBDs!)
and four undamaged carriers of KB - which remains the most powerful naval force
in the world. In the SRA and in China, the Allies are making a fight of kt.

Lexington was not scuttled by Mifune - and apparently didn't even sink today - never mind the first act in the play was to swallow four Long Lance torpedoes from I-20. But there is no way she won't sink tomorrow. Repulse is different. Never mind I decided to scuttle her, she showed up at Singapore - and only needs 420 days to repair. She is too flooded to attempt to reach any port - so her chances of survival are almost as bad as Lexington's are. Curiously, the Allied ships sunk report shows the loss of a battleship off Hawaii OTHER THAN the four the Japanese list claims were sunk! Five battleships at PH plus Force Z out of action - two BB sunk so far and Repulse unable to leave the area. Not as bad as it seemed on the first day (from a Japanese point of view). There also are two big carriers dieing on both sides - and only one left for the Allies on the entire map. Again, credit the Advance Force submarines for following up with Long Lance torpedoes on damaged ships (which for that reason are easier to hit).

The Chinese have become aggressive. Mac attempted a tank offensive vs IJA in Northern Luzon - because only one infantry battalion was reported - but three more units landed during the night - and it turned into a fiasco.

Let me begin by saying there was some truth in Japanese propaganda: seems USS Pennsylvania was lost in the savage fighting of the first couple of days - she just didn't sink right away. She made Pearl Harbor, but was unable to dock, burning furiously, and flooding out at the same time. She is listed as sunk by a Type 95 Torpedo - and likely that was the straw that broke the camel's back - since she had been badly beaten up by 14 inch guns, 250 kg bombs and a couple of smaller air torpedoes as well. [By comparison, USS West Virginia's lost is officially attributed to 36 cm guns of the Kongos - fairly surprising considering she is a pretty fine battleship designed to survive 14 inch shell hits.] This brings the number of Allied battleships lost to 3 - since Prince of Wales had to be scuttled. Her consort, RN Repulse, is still likely to flood out, but at least she isn't burning and is in a shipyard. She is a difficult target to miss, unable to move and probably too big to conceal - so her chances of survival are poor - and she has near total engine damage. I don't really understand how she made port? But technically she survives at this point.

In this turn we have lots of surface actions - including Asiatic Fleet engaging the CVL force - which commander got spooked and ran for base - a lone USS Houston raiding an amphib group - but Japanese torpedo armed ships managing to make it costly - HMS Mauritious leading a squadron of destroyers into three different sea fights -
and Asiatic Fleet engaging a second time, with far less success, a nominally inferior Japanese covering force based on a CL and destroyer division. More interesting, perhaps, is that RN, USN and Philippine PT boats, supported by US Army patrol craft and US Navy submarines, managed to DEFEND Linguyan Gulf from half a dozen task forces! Landings at San Fernando didn't even happen. Several ships were lost and as many more damaged. Then there are the Marines, who held Wake Island. Even more surprising, elements of the Second Independent Company held Kavieng from a nominally superior force. Most Japanese assaults were successful, but not all. China is no less exciting - Japanese forces fighting an offensive defensive to hold Canton and Wuhan were successful - but at the same time wholly distracted from offensive moves. The Chinese are deliberately getting in the way, at a terrible price in terms of casualties - but the game engine regenerates any unit lost (to simulate the vast number of units, often bearing the same name, China created). Oh yes, the Japanese achieved an unusual surrender of a guerilla unit - with 454 : 1 odds - not common and not so easy to do. It happened because the committed an entire division to the operation. It is a very even contest in many areas, and others are not yet engaged.

This was a pretty exciting turn, never mind there is not much happening
in the Central/Eastern/South Pacific, or in the Burma/India/Indian Ocean
areas.

Fighting in Northern Luzon continues to have unexpected outcomes. What
would be recorded as the 'battle of Lingayen Gulf' continues to rage, with
unexpected total Allied victories on land and sea. Never mind the Allies
tried to catch a lone Japanese armor 'regiment' (battalion) with a combined
arms shock attack - and that during the night infantry, artillery and engineer
units arrived (don't ask me how they exceeded normal movement rates?) to
back it up so they faced a substantially larger force than planned - the
tank heavy Allied combined arms task force threw them out of the hex. At
sea, a much reduced force of only 4 RN PT boats scored again, and again
diverted a Japanese amphib force from landing at all. [Turns out the entire
65th Brigade arrived at Takao - never having landed at all - and began offloading -
having suffered a similar fate some days ago.] But Iba fell - to an isolated
Japanese landing that was supposed to be backed up by 65th Brigade - the
Philippine defenders falling back to Clark. This creates a problem with so
much of the Northern Luzon Force at San Fernando. The threat to Clark
probably requires abandoning points so far North.

Four more task forces landed at Kuantan, Malaya - and joined in the attack
on the defenders - who were forced to retreat North to Chokai - an isolated
coastal town now surrounded by the enemy. It appears more of the Japanese
invasion force is landing at Kuantan than in the North, although how it will be
fed logistically remains to be seen. Here too, the landing may force defense
in the North to be abandoned. The IJA is still marching to contact on in the
NW - and the defense is able to pick its points of defense and which units to
put where? In Mayala - and also at Brunei - Allied air power was somewhat
successful - but the completely in tact B-17 force in the Philippines is stood
down to rest.

Another interesting active theater is China. Mostly troops are still marching to
contact after the battles of the last couple of days - but air power (on both
sides) continue to hound key locations - and the Japanese offensives in the
East and SE were able to make a little progress. The Chinese offensive
toward Wuhan is an interesting area - with both sided moving to contact
except at Ichang - which fell two days ago. ROC is driving on three fronts.
It got sent expelled on the NE approach - it had some success on the W
approach - and it is in a thorough mix up on the SW approach with both
sides moving in strong elements for the real fight (the first round was just
to delay the Japanese advance, and momentarily prevent supply generation,
not expected to succeed except in buying time for more troops to move
forward). This is the key area - the nexus of road, rail and water LOC -
and a major set of manufacturing centers - so both sides want to control it.
The Japanese probably can hold it - particularly if they send in aircraft -
but they are on the defensive instead of capturing the Rail LOC they want -
and if they have to divert airpower and/or troop - those are not available
to other areas of operation - so the Allies sort of win even if they lose.

There also was fighting in the Kurils - between Russian air units and submarines -
demonstrating what happens if the Russians and Japanese both move without
a special agreement in a Russian Active Scenario. The Russians were really
trying to move valuable ships away from the mainland - so they are not so
vulnerable to air or land attacks - and can better coordinate with the Allies if
at some point they enter the war. But I should have assigned the subs to
sub transport missions and more carefully range restricted the Russian bombers.

Looks like Japan is working on a coup de main in Malaya - convoy after convoy is landing at Kauntan - no fewer than 5 British/CW units are isolated between Chokai and Kota Bahru - probably mostly disrupted - with no LOC. The price for this was days of pounding from the air - which probably stop now since a group of Ki-43 Is moved into provide air cover on the fine British airfield, and an almost completely disorganized Japanese armor division. But the freshly landing 18th Division troops are proceeding up the road to central Malaya, others are headed to mop up Chokai -
and still others are moving down the central rail line to meet them. The battle - not even joined - in the North is flanked - and no doubt the British will withdraw.

Luzon is a different kettle of fish. Submarines, patrol craft and PT boats - unopposed by strong covering forces - were able to make mincemeat of the landing groups, driving them back repeatedly, and sinking ships. The forces in NW Luzon are unfit to advance. But strong reinforcements are marching around the top using Highway 1. Others are landing. It is going to be unstoppable in a couple of days. 65th Brigade is re-embarking to drive down its historical route - which surprisingly is blocked by an entire PA Division. But there are supplies and support units at Cagayen in the Eastern Valley - and it is being turned into a real air base - replacing San Fernando for the moment - which won't be in service for several more days. In the South, an armor 'regiment' has reached Naga overland from Legazpi, while a small battalion took Daet today. It and two regiments from Legazpi are marching on Naga, but the armor will attempt to take on the surprisingly large opposition (yet another PA division murch farther forward than usual). There is no air power in the area really - except for those B-17s which can reach out to hit any battlefield. BOTH B-17 bases are still operational - although Clark was taken down as per usual - Japanese planes have been busy chasing ships evacuating China. Luzon looks better than it is - and now the IJA is ashore in force - and there is nothing except submarines left to oppose further landings - it is likely that the tables will turn just as they did in Malaya.

Mindinao has a small enemy force at Davao - site of the main Japanese population in the Philippines and hit early historically for that reason. It is anything but clear the small force is up to taking the island or its B-17 base at the Dole Pineapple Plantation in the North? This base, combined with Cebu nearby, may make expeditions into the Southern Visayas or Northern Mindinao complicated. Asiatic Fleet concentrated there, and US Army transports are hauling in all sorts of supplies and resources. USAAF sent a squadron of P-40s. USN sent repair ships, tenders, small craft and, at one time, major warships. These are now retiring from surface actions the day before yesterday, the damaged ones headed to Soerabaja, the undamaged ones, plus allied reinforcements, headed back to Cebu.

The campaign in the Solomans is just beginning - a second attack at Kavieng failed again - in spite of the odds and good supply. Lack of air power and naval support didn't help - the escorting cruiser force having moved on to cover the landing at Shortland. But presumably the detachment of Second Independent Company cannot continue to beat up superior enemy forces without becoming disrupted, losing any troops or running out of supplies (as it has done for two days). More interesting may be the situation farther South - where Japan has detected by long range flying boats that no fewer than three task groups are in the area of Guadalcanal. At the same time, as many more task groups are near New Britain and the horn of New Guinea - possibly headed to or from Lae. Japan has to decide where to send its cruiser force under Adm Tanaka? Back to bombard Kavieng? Try to intercept the ships near Lae? Or those near Guadalcanal? Or split up and try for more than one?

The battle for Canton is over, and the Japanese are erupting from it in all directions. There were inadequate Chinese forces in the area to stand up to the Japanese once Hong Kong fell. But some of those forces are supposed to withdraw for fighting in Burma. Will they? And China could send more units into the area. Will it? It is similar near Kaifeng and points South. Japan has expelled the immediate threats and is moving to clear its LOC - with 3 successes today and probably at least as many again tomorrow. It seems unlikely China can reinforce these positions for which it has no proper LOC - so the battle will turn to the LOC between Kaifeng and Wuhan - which ROC is in a position to contest. Wuhan is somewhat more complicated. Japans offensive on the Western Axis will begin today - vs the remnants of the weak corps that invested the city a couple of days ago. But ROC is advancing on the city in force on three axis - and it is anything but clear how it will turn out? IJA, for its part, has begun its drive to retake Ichang - securing the first segment of the road LOC today. Since Ichang is isolated from ROC land LOC, it must be supplied by sea - so it isn't clear if the huge ROC force can get enough supplies. On the other hand, other ROC units can move in along the flank of the Japanese road LOC - and it isn't clear they can keep clear it and keep it open either? The three Wuhan hexes themselves are major supply sources, except when invested by both sides, so the outcome may be decided by wether Japan can continue to keep them clear of enemy units - as they are at the moment? Japan can also land supplies using ships on a much greater scale than ROC can do. And the Japanese river gunboat fleet, including two ancient "CA" (or coast defense ships) can provide more naval gunfire support than ROC and Allied gunboats can. Yet so far, Allied river craft have conducted the only effective operations - landing part of a division and supplies at Ichang - never mind it already had three ROC corps in it. Wuhan is the key battle to watch - the heart of China - a major base complex - and the nexus of land, rail and riverine LOC. By contesting it in force, ROC has forced Japan to fight for it instead of launching offensive operations from it - for now. In the far North, Japan has made slow progress - and ROC and the Red Army are only trying to slow them down - exploiting rough terrain - and building airfields. The ROCAF is somewhat effective, mainly with SB-2s and IL-4s - but could be neutralized if JAAF sends in more units. At the moment, Japan is supporting ground battles instead of fighting an anti-air war. That might change.

US submarines began to arrive in Japanese waters today - and have been making trouble off Formosa for several days - and Japan has been forced to assign air units and sub chasers to challenge them. Its local SLOC are severely disrupted by efforts to evade the more than half dozen subs detected - and presumably more are either present or en route. In a sort of tit for tat situation, the Advance Force (IJN subs off Hawaii) have broken off from the islands, and either headed back to base for torpedoes and supplies and repairs - or headed on to the West Coast or the South Pacific for offensive patrols. In a week Japan will return the compliment of subs deep in enemy waters. In the South China Sea, it has already done that.

This was another exciting turn. Also one that demonstrates RHS features. In China, Japanese riverine forces bombarded the corps which had invested Wuhan, trying to kill it with bombardment by air and sea in addition to a combined arms attack. Neither the gunboats nor the ancient 'heavy cruisers' - famous pre-WWI Elswick cruisers and veterans of the Russo-Japanese war - are available in other mods. They and Japanese bombers did make the corps suffer badly. However, a fresh Chinese corps arrived - and changed the odds of the battle. As well - the retreating corps organized for battle - so it wasn't caught in line of march. As well - Chinese bombers did fairly effective work - covered for the first time by Hawk 75s - in superior numbers. Japanese fighter pilots did rather well considering their numbers - and it wasn't a decisive air battle - but the bombers were able to deliver their loads - which is the point. Chinese air units start in disarray, and it takes time to get things organized - but they have the ability to run some operations as long as Japan doesn't import a lot of air power.

The other really interesting battle set was at Davao. There Japanese transports still laden were offloading - no point in running and getting sunk with your cargo - better to spend every hour unloading it - having run the risk of sailing in harms way. Empty and almost empty ships had sailed - and it is a good thing. First, a division of gunboats all the way from China - including an Insect class with 6 inch guns - sailed into harbor and forced the docked TF to get underway. [Interestingly, an undocked TF of larger ships was missed entirely - in the dark] They did some damage, but the really significant thing was they set most of the ships on fire. These successfully and professionally got underway, then disengaged, then headed for base at Koror. However, they ran smack into the combined RNN/RN force which was following up on the Asiatic Fleet's sortee into these same waters two nights ago. Burning ships at night are hard to miss - so they were all sunk - leaving only one undamaged patrol ship - which eventually also was spotted and sunk. Pretty realistic. Here again, only in RHS would the gunboats be in the game. These ships did escape all the way from Hong Kong to Singapore - converted into escorts - and served well for a long time.

An enemy cruiser force bombared Daet - sinking small ships on both inbound and outbound runs. [Allied ships are sailing alone - so no more than one gets spotted at a time in these contested waters] Another one, and a battleship force, were spotted and attacked by air off Northern Borneo. Another group of gunboats - the rest of the Insect class in fact - decided to disengage. Small vessels are fine against transports and their escorts - but not against capital ships! The enemy has got tired of losing to pesky enemy ships - and has brought up major covering forces. But the Allies were lucky - and missed all three in the dark.

Battles on Guam, New Ireland and at Daet were draws - somewhat of a surprise - I expected all three to fall - it is the second assault on Guam and the third on New Ireland. Yet another cruiser force in the waters South of New Britain found and sunk a small vessel - loaded with a spotting element of the Second Independent Company. Apparently the enemy doesn't want to allow enemy movements in the area! The Japanese pushed several Chinese guerilla 'regiments' off their LOC and continued march to contact in about ten places in Malaya, Northern Luzon and China. Once again, submarines took their toll - and on both sides. Mines seem to be the most effective ASW weapon. And Allied submarines are appearing all around Japan - not scoring today mainly because of bad torpedoes - but it is a taste of things to come. Perhaps the most exciting air strike was a combined attack by three squadrons of B-17s (they only managed to get 8 planes over the target, a third of their number) with a recon element of B-18s at Koror (Babeldaub in modern talk) - in the hope of catching damaged ships from the Battle of the Sulu Sea in which the Asiatic Fleet drove off the major warships (although it lost Houston and Boise in the process). The target was well defended by Clauds - 6 of the 12 being the A5M4a with 20 mm guns instead of rifle caliber ones (this is the model that tested the guns for the zero and was not put into production - but in 105 it is in production for a short time at the end of 1941). Even so, they didn't do that well (a saying from Uncommon Valor days with Matrix Games is "the best fighter plane is a B-17"). 7 penetrated to the target, scoring 6 x 250 pound bomb hits on Haguro, another on Nachi, and two more on two other ships - not bad at all for such a small strike in the face of fighter opposition. For it part, the JNAF swept Luzon with lots of Zeros, wiping the sky of the fighters they found. Interestingly the only Philippine fighter pilot to score a kill IRL got a Zero with his P-26 combined with an altitude advantage - but didn't live to tell the tale! What fighters remain at Clark will no doubt disband tomorrow.

In Malaya, where the IJA is still marching to contact, JAAF pounded two brigades which ran from Kota Bahru - as well as one that ran from Kuantan. These strikes are likely to wipe out these units - which lack the supplies to rebuild. The Allies tried air stikes but got hurt badly by the now well established forward fighter cover. They may not be able to keep hurting either ships or land units unless some new tactic is found before the run out of planes. No reinforcements are arriving. The major landing at Kuantan is going to make the slow start in the North irrelevant. On Luzon, footholds in the North, at Legazpi and at Iba mean that the defense is forced to fight on three fronts - and it isn't up to doing that effectively for long - especially now it has lost its fighter cover. Still - delay in the Philippines pays dividends in the form of reinforcements - both small ships and not so small land units - so it is a good idea to attempt it. Damaged Allied warships are either repairing forward if minor, or falling back on Soerabaja if more serious. There is so far nothing contesting waters South of the Sulu Sea - not even submarines - so lots of movements are happening to evacuate supplies, fuel, oil and recources to key points. Surely the juggernaut will get there soon.

I screwed up somehow as the Russians - and had a fighter raid into Manchukuo -
which is a great way to start a war!

This turn is more like the second day of the war - with lots of Japanese victories on the ground. About 3 open critical LOC the Chinese had blocked - so Japanese forces are no longer cut off. Guam fell - in spite of 0 (!) disruption and 4 (!) fatigue after several days of fighting. Kavieng fell after an even more impressive containment of superior forces for just as long. And one battle that seems dumb - Chinese brigades in Japanese service attacking the ROC - is just to run the allied corps out of supplies: it is isolated and proper assault troops are marching in. But one critical attack - North of Wuhan - failed to reopen the LOC there - although the presence of air power means it is only a matter of time. Japanese bombers smashed the only significant fighter force in Northern Luzon today - set up many of the ground victories - and have begun to pound on a brigade at Alor Star which will shortly be subject to ground assault. But the Dutch managed to beat up Japanese ships in port at Brunei - with ancient B-10s.
Tanker Robert L Barnes ran out of luck - and ran into a major Japanese cruiser destroyer force in the Philippine Sea. She had almost made it clear of enemy waters.
Karel Doorman was in a position to attempt to engage this same force - but thought better of it - his force being low on fuel and munitions. Submarines on both sides continue to score - but US subs are plagued with bad torpedoes. The new ASW and sub model seems to be working. It is rare, but sometimes the Japanese beat up on a sub - just as in IRL (see USS Wahoo). There is one now near the Tsushima Straits. But the US Fleet Boat isn't sunk - she simply must head for port - and hope not to flood out before she can arrive. Also hope not to be engaged by air patrols on the way. Pretty realistic.

The Japanese are in a very mixed situation, facing inadequate but strong Allied resistance. In a strategic sense, they are paying too much for what they are gaining, but they are NOT being stopped, only subject to attrition and delay.

I am surprised at how well the combination of evasion, air ASW and surface ASW works vs enemy submarines - although when they have good torpedoes and greater numbers it will be far worse.

I am pleased with how well air transport works - for Japan - meaning it will one day work even better for the Allies (you have to actually have air transports to use them - and except in NEI - the Allies have none in any useful place). When something goes momentarily badly air transport can feed the critical point - provided there is an airfield. And when a forward base is taken, air mobile reinforcement helps build up support elements faster than any other way.

I am pleased with how submarines tend to be damaged rather than sunk. As IRL. Cumulative damage is what sinks submarines.

Today will see the first fight for Alor Star. The Japanese are erupting in all directions from Kuantan on the coast - deciding to move with the armor in spite of 153 damaged medium tanks - the enemy will not be able to cope with the light tanks even so - as a follow on wave to the infantry units, artillery and engineers already almost in contact. This is a two edged sword - aiming to wipe out no less than five isolated units - and to threaten the LOC from the North - so that the enemy abandons its nominal forward positions without a fight - and also doesn't get the time to build fortifications in the South. It does not seem possible to stop it.

14th Army on Luzon - which had troubles because naval forces were not well organized and got thrown back multiple times - is finally ashore in force and sorted out - and tearing down Highway 1 toward San Fernando - a significant port/airfield complex. The lack of 65th Brigade in the Cagayan Valley - almost corrected as it is en route again - has not stopped formation of a weird task force of naval airborne infantry, assault engineers, mortars and what the Japanese regard as long range medium artillery (105 mm long guns, not howitzers). Normally I would not expect much of what amounts to an ultra light brigade taking on a division - but we will see in a few days. It is an interesting concept - not waiting for a 'real' brigade. The force in South Luzon is short of supplies, artillery and air support - but that will change - all have been diverted from locations that were in effect already on the way - just not on the way there. Wether two regiments of infantry and a tank battalion can beat the South Luzon Force - a corps - remains to be seen. But this is 1941 and the IJA is in some respects the best army in the world - while the Philippine Army does not even have boots for its soldiers - has never trained above company level - and is critically short of officers and NCOs who have a clue what soldering is about. The Far East Air Force is a shadow of its former self - its last fighter squadron on Luzon was wiped out yesterday - and Asiatic Fleet more or less has staked out a position in the Visayas - not in the North under the umbrella of long range Japanese bombers. In the far South, on Mindinao, three small scattered battalions of Japanese and one base force are ashore - hoping to mop up the island - but without artillery or proper air support - and facing a division to start with = it will be touch and go. If they delay, more Philippine troops will show up. Others are en route - a strange - and veteran - Philippine Constabulary regiment may be able to walk in from the Western arm of the island. The Marines from Bataan are en route by tiny schooner and ferryboat and coaster - all sailing independently. The Allies also have a real airfield at del Carmen - and a fully functional B-17 force - quiet so it can repair and relieve fatigue just now. It may turn into an interesting fight.

In China, the Japanese are winning in the far South - where the Chinese were too weak to begin with - and where Japan has a real air force. The offensive out of Canton begins today. Two other prongs are marching in two other directions - with a view to securing the entire area. Another expedition headed North out of Kwangchow today. In the SE - it is pretty much a mop up operation - and there is nothing the Chinese can do but slow it down - in the Southern part of the sector. Farther East in the Northern part things are different. Good terrain, supply sources, proper engineers and HQ, and bastion positions mean the Japanese will have a long and expensive time securing that area (SW of Shanghai). Wuhan is a real circus. Japan is attacking on two fronts and moving to engage on a third - but it is cut off from land LOC and is not doing too well with supplies. It moved some aircraft out to delay the impact of their eating supplies - they will support from nearby bases not quite so ideal in size. It assigned multiple ships to bring in more supply by sea. But the Chinese are still moving to contact! Barely a fifth of the Allied corps have been engaged - and none of the non-infantry support units are even close to the city yet (artillery, anti-tank, engineers, HQ). This is going to be a long and hard battle - and there is no way to tell who is going to win it? What is clear is this: forcing Japan to defend Wuhan means they are not on the offensive, clearing the rail LOC as they should do. East and Northeast of Wuhan, Japan is doing fairly well on the ground - but terrible logistically. The rail lines were only opened yesterday - and too many troops were inbound on them - and the thruput of the lines is inadequate for the moment. Some of the troops had to turn around and head to the Kaifeng area via a different route. Kaifeng itself is now secure - and the fight for nearby cities - well defended - forming a complex similar to Wuhan along the somewhat less important Yellow River - has begun. This area - also isolated until yesterday - still has a blocked rail line to the SE - and is in grave danger of needing more supplies than it needs for the strong forces headed into the area. The gamble is - take the cities and towns and get the supplies locally - along with keep the rail LOC open long enough to move in enough to matter. Here, unlike in the far South or in the East - ROC has every prospect for making things expensive - it can send in fresh units to relieve the battered ones - which can retire by rail to rear areas to rebuild. Some positions can be fortified, others have favorable terrain. Yet there is too much open terrain between Kaifeng and Wuhan - and Japanese set piece warfare should be up to taking it if it can secure LOC and assemble a combined arms force. To that end, a Japanese armored train has arrived at Kaifeng - having transferred from Manchuria - this being an area with nice main line RR to move along.
In the Far North - bad terrain has not prevented Japan from securing the mountains on one axis, and they are moving to contact on another. Poor Chinese LOC mean the area should be cleared in due course - although the ROC Navy is trying to exploit the Yellow River as a logistic solution - it probably lacks the capacity to make up for lack of roads and rail lines. This area can become Chinese dominated only if and after Kaifeng were to fall to them - not likely at the moment with the strong force already there and even larger force moving in to reinforce it.


Except for the fighting in Malaya and China and the Philippines, it will be quiet until KB is able to reform with new escorts and planes.

There is plenty of action. And Japan wins well in some ways - driving the enemy back on two of the three prongs at Wuhan - with 9000 Chinese casualties - for example. Not one but two major surface forces raided the Allied port complex in NW Borneo, met and almost eliminated the Dutch PT boats there, and evaded submarine traps almost completely. [The Kongo ran into a destroyer, however - so the PTs indirectly did cause some damage - probably about as much as if a torpedo had hit.] They had a new landing go in too. But they have been too slow to establish air cover in the area, and 13 Dutch B-10s more or less killed 4 of the six ships at Brunei - in port. Two DD and a big AK sank - and another likely will follow it - even if not bombed again. After two days of such raids - and relief squadrons ready if needed - I expect the bombing to continue. The USAAF B-17s went in at Koror again - 14 of them this time - and put two 250 pound bombs in Zuiho. And up at Midway someone was paying attention - transferring in dive bombers just able to catch a retiring CL - twice - with thousand pounders. Her survival was in doubt before. This rate of attrition at sea - without major battles even - and ignoring the losses to submarines - cannot be sustained. Even so, the early Oscar Ia showed its worth over Kuantan, and Japanese level bombers did massive damage to enemy ground forces. One raid caused over a thousand casualties - and is a big reason the follow up ground assault achieved odds in spite of starting out at a disadvantage. The Allies also are fragile - with no depth in their defense - and the Japanese may simply blow through them in another week or so. Time will tell.

Japanese offensives were generally, but not universally, successful.
Submarines on both sides are plagued with bad torpedoes, but
continue to take a high toll in enemy shipping (from each point of view).
Air strikes vs ports continue to hit and sink more than air strikes vs
ships at sea do. ASW units gaining experience - even though Japanese -
are hitting more often - in spite of low probability of hit devices.

The most important battle was for San Fernando on Luzon - where defenders
were momentarily cut off from Linguyan City by a Japanese tank incursion -
so they retreated up the Naguilian Road to Baguio City - compounding an
already bad supply situation - and preventing their participation in the defense
of Clark or Bataan. But the Japanese at Linguyan were driven back by a relatively
small and almost purely infantry force of Filipinos aided by one good regiment of
US Army troops. So the Japanese are back in Iba where they started out two
days ago - with even fewer supplies and lots of disruption. Even so, the road
to Clark is open, from two directions, and there are insufficient troops to hold it
for long. In the South prospects are better - and the Japanese are not yet ready to
attempt another attack - still moving to contact in that area. In the East, the ad hoc
airborne, assault engineer, mortar and 'long range' artillery are going to attempt to
dislodge a PA division - in which case they might be able to attempt to capture
Balinta Pass - isolating Baguio City with too many mouths to feed.

On Mindinao, the formerly disrupted and understrength base force from Davao is now
in contact with a battalion of IJA infantry - and will be hard pressed to survive. The Philippino infantry didn't run away, however. It is attempting to form up with the other regiments of the division - to attempt to counterattack the weak IJA force. Meanwhile, the Marines landed to protect the Dole Pinapple Plantation and B-17 base at Cagayan. The Constabularly regiment is trying to march overland along trails to join the main forces - coming in from the long Western arm of the island. Cavite base force is arriving at Cebu - providing it with naval support for the first time. The combination of strong Allied land, air and sea forces in the Southern Philippines and only two battalions of infantry ashore on Mindinao means this area is not yet in danger of collapse.

In Malaya, main Japanese forces are still marching to contact - but Alor Star fell to the first assault - although an attack on the road junction SE of it failed - and is not in danger of immediate defeat either. China continues to see heavy fighting - with Japan seeking to clear LOC threatened by the Chinese and decidedly mixed results. ROCAF made a return to combat today - and JAAF continues to be effective - but has too many ground targets to engage them all.

Here weather was bad - so many planes did not fly. But those that did often had successes. B-17s returned to Clark for their only raid of the war from their primary airfield. They struck Kaohsiung (in Chinese, Takao in Japanese) - sinking a destroyer - wreaking a drydock and setting a damaged merchant ship on fire as well. All 18 planes flew - not bad for an orignal force of 24 - with several back on Mindinao repairing up. Kongo and Haruna were spotted North of Sinkawang (NE Borneo) - so presumably it is a bombardment - otherwise an invasion. This base has been built up considerably but only has one proper infantry battalion - a colonial militia unit. It may not do well in an invasion. Most of the ground fighting is in China. Japanese successes included exchanges MORE than 100:1 in casualty terms - yet it is not clear they are winning. The second invasion of Wuhan failed to leave for the second day in a row - probably because it can't due to no valid retreat option. So the LOC to an offensive Japanese force West of the city remains cut! Japan's success generally is related to air bombardment the same day. Looks like there may be as many as four surface battles impending for tomorrow - one near NW Borneo - one near Luzon - one at Tulagi and one near Kwajalein. Evenly spilt, each side is attacking in two cases. This is a very even campaign. Air losses were 28:27 Japan:Allies - still even in the air - but Japan is flying twice as many sortees.

If it wasn't for all those other things happening, this turn would be called something like Submarines in the Pacific! Lots of subs got on station, or were on station and targets arrived. The only thing that really hurts the subs at this state is mines - if they are foolish enough to run into port.

A daring cruiser force, running in on Kwajalein, got spotted and attacked by land based aircraft. But its floatplanes spotted the Kiddo Butai - also running directly for the attacking force - implying it was spotted yesterday. Also that KB feels fit to fights - in spite of a dirth of escorts - and its aircraft inventory is unknown. Still - having spotted KB means it probably can be evaded.

A larger force (18 RN, RNN and USN ships) running in on ships landing at San Fernando didn't make it - cause unknown. No battle as expected. A Japanese force running in on Tulagi also should have made it - but got delayed by action in Thousand Ships Bay - just to the NE. A schooner was landing an observation team from the Aussie Second Independent Company, but sank with them still on board. Still - the Allies were lucky - the unspotted cruiser destroyer force - famed for its night attack on the same waters in the Battle of Savo Island - is now spotted and may be evaded by the ships offloading at Tulagi. Both halves of the Allied force assembling there - those running in on Kwajalein and those that stayed behind (to repair damage - since accomplished) - were lucky - although it would be better if they were not separated by a thousand nautical miles of distance tomorrow!

There was significant action at Sinkawang - with night bombardment by Kongo class battleships and a daylight landing. It was opposed by British aircraft from Singapore area. Dutch bombers, meanwhile, engaged the advance armor recon elements of the enemy in mid Malaya - hoping to weaken it for an impending British attack which seems not to have come off. But the Allies are clearly cooperating - 2/3 of the ships running in on Lingayen are not USN, and only 1 of 5 cruisers (the other two were lost in action off Mindinao). All 5 surviving 4 pipers (except for damaged units running for Soerabaja with serious damage) are in the force.

The Chinese continued to hold Wuhan - and fought evenly in spite of no supplies and pounding from the air. But in Malaya, Japan ran hundreds of sortees against isolated British allied brigades on the East coast - apparently they intend to wipe them out. Although no doubt the bombing is mere preparation for ground attack, on this scale, vs weak units without supplies, they may be wiped out before the enemy can attack on the ground!
