Later the same week.....

China has reversed itself as the IJA now drives south and west. The Chinese begin to eliminate a rear guard unit or two but are week at his spearhead. Strong IJA forces are at the foothills of the Himalayas and will have to post maps for what this may mean to the overall China position. I just don't know. In Burma we are tangled up with three IJA divisions around Lashio. The news of the day, November 7, 1942, is the entry of Hornet into the navy yards on the west coast of the good old USA. She will require 22 days of repairs. Lady Lex may not be able to weigh anchor until new years and begin the voyage home. Wingfoot continues to arm and fuel the western allies in SoPac and SwPac.  In Australia, IJA armored recon units with over 100 AFVs were spotted in the Great Victoria desert and have been hammered by Dutch and USAF squadrons. M10s have reinforced the Aussies and US 40th division in the sector. The 27th Division and more M10s could react quickly should it get out of hand. The Americal is also available should more trouble be behind them.

SwPac: IJA recon unit does an about face and heads west.

China: Chungking swept by three dozen Tojos. Veteran Warhawk pilots in shock.

US crusiers begin to emerge from shipyards in the US and Australia, refitted and freshly painted.

Is he just raiding there? Does he have a goal other then cause problems for you?

He has launched two days of three hundred plane strikes against Midway. The damage in considerable but CATs still fly from the tender and track him. I thought he was going to invade, and he still might, but that may be a good thing as I can counter as soon as the KB leaves and I like it where I can see it.

November 18, 1942

United States: While the USN has been herculean in its effort to supply the forward areas with means to wage war, the public demands offensive action. The defeat off Tabiteuea and the ejection of the Australians from Terapo under US air protection has tripped up efforts to get any momentum up. The Zuikaku, confirmed sunk in the naval action of Pago Pago has not quieted the press for as long as hoped. SoPac, after being reinforced by sea for the past two months launched Operation Black Hills yesterday. Troops are at sea and the New Hebrides will be liberated before Christmas. Catalina’s flying from forward bases note a recent high level of enemy activity in and around Guadalcanal and Tulagi. Forces are in place to counter this. The timely appearance of the Kido Butai off Midway has allowed a brief window to launch offensive operations in SoPac.

CenPac: Baker Island is attacked nightly. The garrison is supplied but lightly armed. Our first night fighter squadron is being dispatched there. If the base falls, Canton is in easy flying distance.

SoPac: Recon picks up no presence of IJ forces at Luganville, operation Black Hills is launched on the morning of the 17th. Additional naval attack squadrons arrive this afternoon at Suva to stage forward as soon as a strip is up. B24s arrive in Suva as well to further train or stage to Australia as needed. The Lexington continues to repair slowly and another 100 naval engineer squads will make landfall shortly to assist. The Hornet will be ready in under two weeks for sea trials.

Australia: Supply is a PAIN!

Burma: The IJA finally begins counter attacking at Lashio. It’s a battle I can’t win.

China: begins to stabilize. Chinese forces are on the offensive south of Chungking. I don’t think the IJA knows it yet.

China: IJA forces press against the road leading west. There is 2500av between us. I am well supplied at this part of the line and look forward to the inevitable "shock" attack. In the center Chinese forces press south, trying to isolate stragglers. P38s down more Tojos again today over Chungking. B17s and Liberators stage small raids in China.

Burma: The battle for Lashio is building. I try to extricate the Aussies, he calls on formations formerly facing the Chinese to the east.

SoPac: 1st Amphib. HQ with the 112th Cav are off shore of objective Black Hills. We are spotted. 7/7.

CenPac: KB hits Midway for the third day. I will not leave the safety of Pearl's copious AAA and fighter cover to seek battle. 

Australia: 50,ooopts of fuel reach the country.

NorPac: Operation centrifuge is coming together. Details soon. Forces massing.

CenPac: quiet. No spot on KB for 2 days.

SoPac: The newly arrived 43rd BG stages to Australia from Suva. 176th UAAF base loads for the New Hebrides. The 112th Cav is ashore and digging in. Luganville is ours. Engineers begin work on a strip. A Jap sub torpedo's the xAP with 1st Amphib HQ on it off shore. An escort is assigned and it egresses from the beaches. The sub is located and destroyed by the Laffey.

SwPac: Airfield building. Cairnes: AF7 41%, Cooktown: AF 4 64%.

Burma: Ledo at AF8 99%. It presently holds half a group of B17s and a group of Mitchells. Tomorrow we can stage in three more Liberator squadrons and two more Fortress squadrons.

China: CAP trap chews up an IJAF datai of early model bombers.

Generally quite throughout all theaters. I intend to drop a curtain of silence over all but China for a few weeks while forces array for 1943. In China, massive IJA forces are on the march west. They have made the perimeter of the Chinese lines in the tropical mountains.

November 1942

Observations: On the player side, Paul is perfect for me to oppose as Japan at this time with my experience. He is aggressive with a plan. He has secured the DEI and a large part of Australia. The Pacific is his playground. The tactics of not building up most bases makes retaking them especially precarious as no air fields or ports reward a successful landing leaving me especially vulnerable to the Kido Butai which has won it’s one large encounter with the USN at the Battle for Tabiteuea. Ensuing bombardments from Yamato and company make building and fortifying difficult at best. Unless I can pin the Kido Butai into an LBA sandwich in early to spring 1943 it will continue to hold back the dam of allied forces until fall. In China the battle has been titanic. The losses to both sides are bordering on lunacy. Here I have the great battle of Chungking, waged inside the capital for one day, to thank for a continued presence of China at all. The continuous shock attacks and endless bombing finally caught up with him. The loss of 1,ooo combat squads in one day resulted in a massive retreat across the Yangtze, restoring the lines from the spring and early summer. In the air in China I claim a victory as well as American squadrons, bought out early in the war, made their appearance in Asian skies and continue to shred IJAF formations over Chinese cities and army groups .Losses of aircraft and pilots has been acceptable compared with hundreds and hundreds of kills claimed there. Two squadrons alone boast over 400 air to air kills. Six operate in the theater. On the game side, it is time to take a close look at what we need to do and where in 1943. While the Kido Butai roams in CenPac and SoPac a real opportunity exists to evict the IJA from western Australia. Ample naval and transport lift exist and four reinforced US divisions are in or very close to SwPac. In SoPac  there are the US Marine formations. In India-Burma there is just enough to force a one axis advance or land behind him.

At the strategic table: It will take a minimum of 60 days to launch a major seaborne invasion. It would take 24 hours to mount an atoll or unoccupied grab. Forces to take, build, and defend an objective are in place. Supply in SoPac is at over 400,ooo pts and 180,ooo pts of fuel are a week to ten days away. Fuel is at a premium in Australia and SoPac so this first large shipment will be necessary before any sizable operation is undertaken.

Intentions: At the current time, I fully plan on retaking Port Moresby, Horn Island,  Ndeni, and Kira Kira before summer. I expect to have Rabaul surrounded and cut off by winter. If something goes wrong in SoPac, I will invade in western Australia with at least three divisions backed by SwPac air. The US Army will be tasked with New Guinea and the Marines with the Solomons. If it is quiet enough through the new year, B17 and Liberator strength should be sufficient for spring. All groups are filled out, some with reserves, and stock piling has begun. The B26 and B25 squadrons are filled out as well. SwPac boasts well over 100 B17 and B24s with a further 128 mediums, not counting DAF, RAAF, and RAF squadrons present. There are two operational P38 squadrons with crack pilots and reserve airframes for sweeping duties and three squadrons of Spitfires train hard for local forward CAP. US Marine air is very strong in SoPac and backed up by a further two fighter groups. Once Lexington weighs anchor, by Christmas I hope, a further 2 groups can be brought forward to CAP the advance.

Tactics: I will take Sulu Sea’s advice on carrier Ops and try and maximize what I have.. It looks like ten CVE, one CVL, and one fleet carrier for spring. Submarines, while hit hard in Manila, escaped west with few losses and have begun to deploy forward looking forward to spring. Some small mining ops have been made to mainland Japan and transit areas. NorPac will see a large feint in a vain hope to lure KB into the icy cold.

CenPac: Seadragon is lost east of the Gilberts to aggressive ASW IJN effort.

China: IJA strengthens positions on the east west road to Burma. Another artillery bombardment.





SoPac: Operation Black Hills: US flag raised over Luganville. Airfield up in 48 hours.

China: IJA forces spot the large Chinese formations crossing the Yangtze and begin to withdraw from the western frontier.

Burma: The IJA looks like it will try an all out attack on Lashio. Units spotted in the jungle from the NW as well as least a division moving back from the Chinese frontier from the east. The USAF is ordered to make the largest strike of the war. Over 100 B24s and B17s are ordered to join 64 B25s and hit the IJA hard.

Joe, I'll PM you this week on the advice. Its simple and nothing you don't know. I have to dissect my loss at Tabiteuea to illustrate it. It's still painful.

Seeds of the plan to retake Port Morseby. It will be a get in and get out affair. I will work out the IL (initial lift) naval factors and post in a few days along with the air plan and detailed warship assignments. This cannot fail.

If you need to get troops on the ground quickly and intend to keep the base as you obviously would I recommend bringing along either a USN base force or one of the smaller units to help with naval support.

When I landed at PM I had a normal size USN base force and also a command and a corps HQ trained for the invasion but I managed to offload 3 divisions plus a bunch of support units in 2 days completely. It shocked even me. By the 4th day I was clear with all my units.

I did use over 400,000 tons of lift in that operation though. Transports filled only to about 25% troop only will unload quickly.

Solid advice. The demand for the USN base units is greater than the supply. I hope to replace my fuel transfer depot base unit in SoPac with port detachment units and replace the USN BF helping Lex repair to free up two, but not before Christmas. The advice does warrant trying to fit in the IL for D-Day. Thank you.
November 27, 1942

SwPac: We hit Port Moresby, but the damage is light.

Burma: The IJA is hit by the largest day of heavy raids to date but the damage is also minimal.

USAAF OOB SwPac:
B17 (168)
B26 (80)
B25 (80
P38 (50)
P39 (50)
P40e(50)

**more Army Air Corp fighters tied up defending the Lex and Suva and Noumea. USMC fighters will begin to take over when the Corsair arrives.

Burma: The Aussie brigades at Lashio are shock attacked out of Lashio with heavy casualties. The IJA 6th guards reinforced by three Rgts and an armor unit prove plenty and the Australians retreat to Bhamo. The maneuver was not successful in that I wanted to pull units out of China. We do gain 46mi of road to China. 

SoPac: Seabees are spotted under sunny skies (first in days) unloading over the beach at Ndeni. US support personnel and equipment are also spotted in Luganville harbor.

That plane will change the air war for you. Sadly you only get 30 per month but some arrive via new squadrons. Put your very best pilots in them!

December 2, 1942

SoPac: The quiet could not last forever. After the Dutch find Soryu off the Shortlands, more IJN carriers arrive off Luganville and punish allied transports and warships in port. The P39s which fly are shredded and the attackers are mostly unmolested. Damage assessments will be made available shortly.

China: B17s and B24s fly over China and hit a large concentration of IJA units near Kweiyang. Results are favorable.

December 3-4, 1942

SoPac: IJN units of the KB move south. On the third they find nothing. On the fourth they attack the harbor again at Luganville. Smoke and fire rise over the port. USN CVEs on transport duty arrive in launch distance and provide the Fiji's with badly needed aircraft. The spot on the afternoon of the fourth reveals the Kido Butai complete with battleships and tankers. It may be a rough 1st week of December.

December 5-10, 1942

SoPac: The KB hits the New Hebrides one more time followed by a naval bombardment. The USS Helena settles in Luganville harbor and becomes another casualty of the war. There have been several anxious days since the departure of the Japanese navy. They will reappear any moment. Some very green marine aviators take over for a severely bludgeoned army squadron of P40s. SoPac  Air HQ loads on fast transports at Suva for Luganville. The airstrip is repaired and could go to level 2 shortly if left alone for a few more days. PT boats and submarines screen the anchorage. 150,ooo pts of fuel are due in Australia in 48 hours.

Burma: I order a shift in action in Burma to the north coast. The Brits will make a push from Akyab now. Jap fighters are spotted on the repaired strips at Prome.

China: The Yangtze line is still in flux as IJA units attempt to cut off Kweiyang.

December 12,1942

An uneasy calm spreads across the Pacific. Allied hopes are the Kido Butai requires some days of maintenance after two three day duration raids at Midway and the New Hebrides. Frantic construction efforts are under way at Luganville and Ndeni. Tanna is scheduled for bombardment tonight. In the US a second LST is delivered and departs on its shake down cruise off the west coast. Fletchers begin to trickle into inventory as well. Air defense units are ordered to the docks for embarkation and deployment in the south Pacific. In China the IJA is once again on the attack and is threatening Kweiyang from three sides. Burma has remained quiet since the Aussies were expelled from Lashio.

December 15, 1942

ComPac: Word reaches Pacific HQ three more escort carriers have crossed the Panama Canal and have entered the Pacific Ocean. Several more fleet subs along with fuel and supply has also crossed the canal and is in route to SoPac. 

SoPac: The Lexington could be made ready for sea now. Her float damage is light and most of her system damage is gone. I will most likely pull the trigger on new years eve. The Detroit is also repairing quickly and will head for the west coast soon as well. Suva is completely built out. The harbor and surrounding anchorages are busy and full. Supply is at over 375,ooo pts and fuel has reached 65,ooo pts. Fast transports left last night for the New Hebrides to bolster the construction effort.

SwPac: Alice Springs is now supplying Tenant Creek with much needed support. The base will resume building soon. No Japanese have been spotted for a couple of weeks in either the north or west of the allied lines.

India: Prince of Wales is due in Cape town soon.

Burma: Elements of the 51st fighter squadron down some Tojos over Prome and force the IJAF to resume operations from deeper in Thailand. Sweeps scheduled for Rangoon tomorrow. The flak at Prome is intense and the RAF gets roughed up a bit over the target. We lose five birds to flak today.

China: Just will not sit still. I’ll have to post the new situation this weekend.

December 18, 1942

SoPac: Intensive IJN sub activity around Suva, Pago Pago, and the New Hebrides continues. The USN has scored on some of the intruders but can claim no sinkings. Luganville is close to level 3 on airfield construction. The USAAF BF recently delivered will boost the USAF CAP to three squadrons. At Suva, Michells and Marauders stage to Sydney to make room for a B24 squadron tonight.

CenPac: Submarines continue to deploy from Pearl, the map looks like a 500nm wolf pack, WITP-AE style. The USN flies recon over Wake yesterday from camera equipped Wildcats. They do three flyovers with the intent of drawing a reaction. We’ll see.

SwPac: Supply at Tenant Creek continues to build as B25s join in on the air cargo runs. I hope when the airfield goes to two after we start construction, the supply draw will rise as well. Anyone know?? The Americal loads from the Fijis for its appointment with destiny in the jungles of New Guinea. Port Moresby is a smoking cauldron of shattered runways and piers. After new year’s I will try and interdict  their mail.

Burma: The IJA 6th Guards Div and 14th Guards Rgt wipe out the 13th Burma rifle Bn which has denied the Lashio forces supply from Mandalay and the jungle road off and on since the invasion. There is some consolation as we kill over 100 japs on the jungle coast road by B17.

China: 100mi to the west of the Capital we kick the snot out of the remaining elements of the IJA 13th division. P40E fighters begin to filter into Chinese fighter squadrons. They will need three months of training before I let them meet the enemy. P38s trying to protect our army group at Kweiyang meet swarms of Zeros and a new bird, the KI45 Nick. Its fast, armored, defensed and nasty. Four Lightings make the intercept, three return, no kills. Kweiyang is under huge pressure. Post it soon. Supply is ok everywhere but where I really need it.

I decided to write to myself some more today. Should I post something more appropriate on Joe's AAR? I'll just post from the war.

The Imperial Japanese Navy tests the combined allied defense of the New Hebrides. Losses mount in the defense. The Helena rests on the coral.  Another cruiser rests on the beach. The raid last night surprised all the encountered allied vessels. The Kido Butai probes the NNW by E approaches and disappears last night. The “wily” emperor of Japan is seeking to embarrass Zulu HQ yet again. Let the 27th of September 1942 remain the lowest point of the war. The memory of the 9th Marines will be avenged.
