I've just realized that I'm wasting the services of two carriers w/ attacks on ground forces. I should be chasing ships with them.

And then there was this air strike on Singapore. No Allied CAP this time. Maybe he's getting low on fighters at Singers.

I see now what's happening........Jim was using those ships at Johnston Island as bait to get me to expose the carriers and now he's
chasing them with his heavy guns. I'm going to have to retreat it looks like because I'm not sure I have the air power to dispatch all
those heavy guns before he gets to my carriers.






Cheeky bugger!

I'm attacking his heavy guns w/ everything I have and there were no hits and there was no CAP and I'm afraid I haven't got enough
bombers left to make a dent in his armour. I'll have to run for it. Full speed and get out of there ASAP.

It looks like we have a little air war going on over Darwin. I'm bombing his airbase and so far my raids have been escorted so I'll let them
keep going unless and until it starts getting expensive to do so. This may go on a long time. I expect Jim to move his B-17's up north
and bomb me, bomb my airfield. I may have to get some surface forces together and go bombard Darwin to dampen his warlike ardour.

Jim has brought out the AVG so I may have to stand these guys down or restrict their range or something. I don't think I have any more
fighters of high quality to committ to this fight either. It's either go up against the AVG and ignore the losses or give ground and live to
fight another day. I'm pretty sure Jim will use the AVG offensively as well. I may have bitten off more than I can chew here.

This is the second air strike on Jim's big guns and STILL no hits. I may lose some carriers from this incident. I can go to full-speed and
maybe give him a good chase but he's probably got me beat on the speed. Maybe it's a factor of how long he's willing to chase my
carriers. He's probably prepared to run them out of gas in the effort.

Jim has pushed a sub up into my port at Balikpapan and is making a pest of himself. I may have to fly some ASW into there to help out.

I'm doing bombardments instead of just attacking him at Manila because I wanted to avoid all the high losses attacks that would result.
But on the other hand HIS bombardments are causing mucho casualties so I'm wondering if I ought to just pull the plug and attack him
instead of doing bombardments. I'm going to try an attack tomorrow just to see what results accrue.

There's savage fighting still going on on the island of Java. So far I have a tiny edge but I think I might be able to move some more
people in there to sweeten the odds a bit. Maybe I can figure out a way to do some naval bombardment or something. I'd rather not
damage the facilities there however, given a choice.

And then the next thing that happened was this ground attack by the Allies at Manila. THIS is the kind of attack that is killing my dudes.
I figure I HAVE to attack him to make the bombardments stop somehow. The planes are SLOWLY making a difference but it's not fast
enough for about 350+ of my troops each day. I may have to move some more dudes yet into there.

And then there was this Allied bombardment attack. Here's another example of where I went off half-cocked and didn't bring enough
people to do the job. The 4th / C division is in Batavia now and I have the 4th / B in Oosthaven ready to be transported, now if the
shipping were only there already. They are on their way, couple of days away but we're planning on having all three parts of the 4th
Division in Java eventually. Then I can combine them into one to make the full division. Then after Java I guess I'll have to use the 4th
Division in Singapore.

And then there was this Allied bombardment attack that didn't grab any traction. I've got my guys set to do a DA tomorrow so we'll see
what kind of attack I can mount at this time. I may have to move some more people up to that area to get the front line moving again.

And then there was this Allied bombardment attack at Gasmata. I'm guessing Jim knows attacking me uses up supply and that he's
attacking me just to be using up the supply there at Gasmata so I don't get it eventually. Sneaky, this Jim.

Jim still has a tiny edge at Port Moresby so I still need to move some more people in there but I think the crisis part is past us. Until Jim
has some more people to move in there or something. He bombarded me with some capital ships yesterday, he might do that again, and
until I move some people in there Port Moresby is still an open question. I want that real estate and he knows it. He wants it so he can
base some Warhawks there. I want it so he can't do that. It's important too.

I thought it prudent to unload an AA unit at Buna so as to bolster the air defences at that locale. Just in case Jim gets adventuresome.
I've been missing his B-17 raids here lately. Maybe he had to disband them or something. Or maybe he wants to conserve those few he
has left. Maybe he's using them for naval search off the east coast of OZ. There's a lot of things he could be doing with them if he has
any left. We'll have to ask him sometime what his B-17's are doing now.

Here's the situation at Port Hedland: I've got an E boat and three subs in the same hex where he's got a couple of boats I'd like to sink.
And after this debackle is over the subs can go back to Derby and Broome. To babysit their ports.

Resources from Makkasar are finally beginning to reach Bubble Drop. Most of the resources that the home islands has been receiving
have come from Hokkido and the extreme northeast regions. Now finally, the resources from Java and the Celebes and Sumatra are
starting to trickle up the chain. I expect this load of resources to reach Tokyo in about a week. Soon I'll have the hub and spoke system
up and humming like a well-oiled machine. Maybe.

Diego Garcia is what we in the submarine business call a "target-rich environment". I need to send a bunch more subs out to DG so as to
keep all those Allied ships jumping.

Here's my problem at Port Moresby.......my guys are out of supplies. I've got two Tina's and some Betty's flying in supplies but on bad
weather days they don't get much. I get notices in the Op Report about supplies being flown but I have no idea how much actually lands
in the hands of the troops on the ground. Hopefully, they are getting some. This is why I need to ship in some more people to replace
these guys. They've had enough to contend with for a couple of weeks. Plus, Jim has another ground unit headed to PM and that's
going to put the Allies over the edge and liable to attack me at any time. Maybe I need to bombard PM a bunch more.

Those at Saumlaki are watching the unload of some of the bigger AA guns. The next time that group of Howards comes raiding from
Darwin I'll be ready. They haven't been around lately that I remember so maybe next time it'll be the B-17's. I'd like to catch some of
those B-17's in my AA trap.

TF 91 is docked at CRB sucking up all the resources that CRB has. This should clean out the resources that have reached CRB so far.
I expect to use CRB as a major hub and have spokes that go from there to Hong Kong, Pescadores, the PI islands and that's about it.
Other ships will use those spokes to run their goodies to the next major hub etc. until at last they arrive in the home islands to replace
those that are being used up as we speak. The goodies aren't flowing really well yet but at least there's a rough draft of a plan in place
and running through it's paces. I guesss it'll be about a week until there's goodies in all parts of the pipeline but it's started already.

I'm not sure if I should go to full speed or not on this TF. I'm hoping to deter Jim from colliding with and sinking all my carriers and I'm
wondering if I can't do that by running my ships through his path. He's got the preponderance of quality ships so I'm expecting to lose
some ships here. I'm wondering if I can't save my carriers any other way and I'm not coming up with much. This is the last ace I have to
play in this hand.
