But not precisely the battles the Allies were hoping for! A British 'carrier raid' came up empty. So did Southern Cruiser Force - trying to intercept invasion groups headed for Noumea. But KB - covering the invasion - did rather well. On land, Tulagi Fell, Tacloban (the third largest port in the Philippines, defended by remnants of III Corps) also fell, and three corps gave up their position in China - all with about 3000 casualties. The Allies did far better in the air - winning air combats in Burma and over Java - as well Allied bombers were effective at Batavia - but Java remains doomed and two more cities fell in Burma (one just surrendered before the assault came in).

KB in support of Lafoa landing is engaged by DDs at night. Used up alot of operation points to the level where no Zero fighter cap was covering the invasion force next day. The A24 had free wackes at the transports..

An amazing day.

The Japanese attack on the "seam" between Australia and the South Pacific expanded, with a comprehensive set of landing in the New Hebredes, as well
as the first assault on New Caledonia itself. The Allies naval forces did remarkably
well vs the now empty invasion force (that is too late) - sinking 4 APs and 2 AOs and a DD outright - and leaving the face of a CA in doubt - at little cost. A US sub managed to torpedo a carrier - but I did say US sub, right? They still haven't got their torpedoes working!

Japan also captured Kendari and yet another location on New Guinea, and expanded their airlanding in Burma. The first assault on Mandalay went home - but didn't take it. The first assault at Bandoeng failed to take it - but did reduce its fortification level. This assault is effectively behind Dutch lines - and that may be a problem for many Allied units still trying to reach the city from Batavia. Units that took the "Northern route" bypassing Bandoeng are more likely to escape the now doomed defense of Western Java. A Chinese shock attack on a single brigade turned into a nightmare when an entire "army" (corps) - including HQ - walked in just before combat (spelled out with over 7,000 casualties). It was that kind of say - some plans worked - some didn't - for both sides.

British controlled submarines have now joined the list of plague sub forces, with a remarkably spectacular day.

And Mifune sent his carriers deep into the enemy rear, showing up East of Saipan! What a day!

Sopac is progressing as planned...after dropping our troops one amphib TF was caught in daylight by a enemy CA TF. The KB did not see the CA Tf probably because of Clouds. The nachi was out of ammo from previous action and took some hits for the team.
