Mifune, who designed Scenario 129 (TWO = Total War Option)
is in charge of Allied strategy.

I am in charge of Axis strategy.

It is our intent (apart from detecting eratta, which detail turn entry facilitates) to show off the features both of RHS and of this scenario.

Scenario 129 assumes revised Japanese strategic and military policy c 1931, at which time standardized engineering plants were adopted, and used to power generally standardized warships of all types. The Allies are generally aware of developments in Japan since 1931, and have reacted to them to some extent. The Dutch did build replacements for Java and Sumatra, and laid down the van Heemskerk soon enough she has just completed. The Philippine Army is almost mobilized and has obtained a few more weapons (i.e. twice as many PT boats, a squadron rather than a flight of bombers, etc). Allied warships start the game in somewhat more organized and safe locations. And the US implements its general policy of "more types of planes result in more operational aircraft sooner" instead of a focus on the very best plan type in fewer numbers. Thus, while the idea of twin engine carrier fighters is still rejected in the main, a few F5Fs are built (until the superb P-38 overcomes its development problems). As well, the USAAF version of the F5F is built briefly, and the USN carrier version of the P-38 is also built in small numbers eventually. Similarly, the plan to build USMC B-25s for carrier operations (which was tested) is implemented. And many ship types may convert: if one wants Iowa's - or HMS Vanguard - sooner - they arrive as carriers; if not, when the ship arrives immediately convert it to its gunship form.
The Allied strategy is based on War Plan Orange and US doctrine. Mifune wants to show off the RHS policy that the Allies are NOT forced to ignore war warnings and sit there passively while the entire battle-line is taken out of action. Given the greater concern in Scenario 129, this is realistic. So the United States Fleet will be caught at sea - conducting its daily short range exercises (to build fleet cohesion as well as the possibility of intercepting hostile enemy carriers). The fleet will divide into divisions, three of which sail out on 120 degree vectors: the expected one from the SW, the one actually used by Red forces in USN exercises from the NW, and a third one to the East because the Army-Navy report indicated an enemy carrier force could come from any direction. These forces are set to retire and they are all covered by land based fighters.
At the same time, the carriers (which start the game just after delivering a squadron of aircraft to Wake and Midway) will assemble into a task force, joined by a CA at Johnston Island. In ideal circumstances, they will swoop in on damaged enemy carriers caught by a sortee from Oahu.

The Philippines will depend on Fort Drum and the Manila Bay defenses to prevent an invasion directly into Manila. Forces on Luzon will fall back on Manila, with a view to denial of it to the enemy as long as possible. Naval forces will not await the start of the war, but will generally leave Manila. Subs and PT boats will defend Luzon itself.

Malaya will depend on air power to support ground troops trying to delay an invasion force from reaching Singapore. Naval forces will not await the start of the war, but will generally leave Singapore. Subs will attempt to harass invasion forces.

The British, Dutch and US surface fleets will combine at Soerabaja to await opportunites to attack enemy invasion groups.

All Allied warships in the South West Pacific will combine at Sydney to form a South Pacific Task Force.

Mifune, who designed Scenario 129 (TWO = Total War Option)
is in charge of Allied strategy.

I am in charge of Axis strategy.

It is our intent (apart from detecting eratta, which detail turn entry facilitates) to show off the features both of RHS and of this scenario.

Mifune, in his capacity representing both Admiral Kimmel (Pacific Fleet)
and Admiral Hart (Asiatic) ordered 'every ship to sea' in some capacity or
other. The Asiatic Fleet - whose warships are substantially dispersed already -
seeks to get as many of the remaining ships as possible to the NEI. The
warships already at Balikpapan will try to join the ABDA force assembling at
Soerabaja.

The United States Fleet reworked the plan from a three pronged, 120 degree
set of sortees to essentially a four pronged heavy set of sortees 60 degrees
apart, from SW to NE - with two more prongs on the other 60 degree angles -
one to the East for gunnery and mine training - and one to the SE to facilitate
the escape of auxiliaries (bound for the South Pacific) and transports and tankers
(bound for the US West Coast) - including both ASW and cruiser covering units.
For one thing, it is impossible to divide 8 battleships by 3, but you can divide it
by four. For another, the battleships come in natural pairs, with matched ranges
and capabilities. And then staff determined that the 60 degree angle permitted
(in theory) the forces to react into targets. The idea is the entire fleet sails
UNDER LAND BASED FIGHTER COVER most of the time - only to the distance
permitting effective combined carrier strikes - the limit is four hexes for a Val -
and it is optimum at only three hexes. This is to be done every day, so it does not
matter what day an enemy attacks. And if nothing is found, the fleet returns
automatically. If will at least constitute great drill in formation steaming.

An attempt was made to complicate landings off Malaya and the Philippines.
In the Philippines all the US Army gunboats went to sea - hoping to steal ops
points from enemy task groups. In Malaya, a minelayer was sent to mine Kuantan,
a critical port in the SE. Bomber units were uniformly given fighter escorts -
at the expense of leaving Singapore with a single fighter squadron - and it too
was assigned to escort bombers - just in case the enemy came far South.

It turns out the Axis combat reports lie about sinking two battleships -
although indeed both are likely to sink - neither has yet done so.
The combat reports for the Allies are below. Attached is a unique RHS
file - the Allied Situation After Combat - so the Allies can study the map
before the Axis complete their next turn.

This turn might be called "bloody shambles" as the different strategies of both
sides interact to produce often messy and somewhat unusual results.

Off Malaya, a minelayer encountered a major invasion group off Kuantan
on the SE coast, causing the entire force to retire! Off NW Luzon, several
actions with US Army patrol boats may have prevented landings at San
Fernando. But it fell anyway - to airborne assault - in a near run battle
between a Filipino battalion and part of a very light IJN airborne SNLF.
It may be academic, however, as Japan managed to land right beside Manila.
But the air group of a CVL covering that landing was gutted by fighters
over Manila. Mifune's use of cross connecting, high altitude fighter
sweeps, CAP and area CAP over central Luzon was remarkably effective
for the first day.

Possibly the greatest disaster for the Japanese was the torpedoing of a CVL
off Malaya: the Allied escorted bomber tactic generally failed due to very
heavy bomber strikes on most bases. But the enemy didn't want to lose the
runway at Kota Bahru - and elected to strafe it with fighters instead.
A bomber/fighter strike from that vector did manage the one hit on a carrier
of the day.

A more surprising outcome was the battle off Hawaii. Off because very few
vessels remained in port for the air strike (with more than 300 bombers escorted
by more than 100 Zeros) to become targets. The entire United States Fleet was
at sea - either seeking potential enemies on various vectors - or leaving the area
in the case of auxiliaries and empty transports and tankers - or covering these -
or engaged in gunnery practice with USS Utah - or minelaying and minesweeping
exercises. A few vessels tried to deliver supplies to island very short of them -
as did transport aircraft. And a few vessels transferred to Lahaina Roads -
as did a half squadron of USMC fighters, a squadron of USMC dive bombers, and a
USAAF observation squadron. Some minor types sought to leave the potential
battle area by going to Hilo - either from Pearl or from their positions at sea.
ALL of these operations ended up encountering the enemy - although not all the task forces were engaged.

It turns out that if the entire fleet is at sea, the Advance Force Pearl Harbor (aka the Sixth Submarine Fleet) gets to do what it was intended to do. IJN expected IT to score more than the carriers! On this first day of the fight, the subs did indeed deliver. Of two battleships sunk outright, one is credited to a sub torpedo, one to an aircraft torpedo. The enemy carriers were located and identified by the tight
air search pattern (five hexes) - that search facilitated both air strikes and at least one brief encounter between a battleship division and the Kiddo Butai. Three quarters of the battleships survived - most of them undamaged - and an even larger proportion of the smaller warships and auxiliaries survived. On the other hand, they are now at sea with an enemy that (a) knows where they are and (b) no longer needs to take out the land based airfields on Oahu! It remains to be seen if this was a good idea - or not?

In the East China Sea area there were a couple of successful anti-naval air strikes vs the massive numbers of vessels fleeing China for points in the Philippines. But even larger numbers fleeing across the South China Sea were essentially unengaged. Wether they can continue this flight also remains to be seen?

Although both sides sent many task groups up and down the Yangtze, it appears there were no contacts - not even with static barriers of river booms nominally blocking both sides not far from each other near Ichang. Perhaps there will be more action tomorrow?

Mifune (aka Admiral Kimmel) didn't like the report that the airfields on Oahu were essentially unusable - even if a significant part of The Hawaiian Air Force fighters had survived. So he predicted (correctly in the event) that the enemy would strike the port again today - since at least damaged battleships were likely to return to the shipyard.
So he generally directed ships should avoid Pearl, except for PT boats and a few minor cases. Each damaged battleship was to try to reach the nearest possible island other than Pearl, and the undamaged ones (including Nevada, which can still make fleet cruising speed and had no fires), should evade - either heading to the fleet meeting point now set for Christmas Island (if South or West of Oahu) or for Lahaina
(if North or NW of Oahu). There, the local airfield could be covered from Hilo, where most of the surviving fighters were sent (never mind the lack of aviation support - they can fly for a while). That worked out rather well - strikes into Lahaina at least were contested and cost the enemy experienced pilots.

Off NW Luzon a probably major invasion group was repelled, with casualties, by a PT boat attack. The second time in two days an invasion attempt had to be aborted (the other case being at Mersing off Mayala).

On Luzon airborne took a port on the right flank of the major landing at Infanta, possibly because it has a major road which may permit flanking of Manila and, otherwise, which will commit one of the two divisions South of the city - assuming there are follow up troops. These appear to have been spotted two hexes to the East.
This is a very unusual strategy, landing at points with virtually no port capacity, no airfields at all, and no good, direct LOC to a major objective. But it may be very sound planning - troops at Manila must face the invasion to the East lest it capture the city, shutting down supply generation and the arrival of reserves. And most of the rest of the defenders on Luzon either have their hands full with the Northern invasion - or possibly simply are out of position (in no major invasion occurs). It is not yet clear which? It may be the major landing was thwarted today by offshore actions of patrol boats, submarines and PT boats (one of the two PT boat strikes being successful).

The enemy came back to Mersing today, landing in force. However, Vildebeeste's escorted by the one remaining squadron of Buffalos which is effective nearly repeated yesterday's feat of hitting a CVL, and other bombers did manage to damage and/or sink laden troop transports, as did mines.

A surprising fraction of the ships leaving China via the South China Sea survived, but the only survivor in the East China Sea was sunk today. Similarly, the vast majority of ships in the Philippines seem to have got away, in spite of both land based and carrier based air. Mifune's guess that the enemy would focus on his offensive problem - going for air bases and landing sites - would mean too few assets dedicated to sinking minor vessels - turns out to have been right.

The Dutch part of the ABDA force has arrived at Soerabaja, while the RN and USN parts will arrive tomorrow. One USN Brooklyn class cruiser - which started at Cebu - managed also to evade either detection or engagement by the enemy - and she - and a few other loose destroyers - are likely to join the force in a few days.

The enemy air-ground strikes on Kota Bahru achieved 84:1 odds, causing the local brigade to surrender, and ejecting the regular brigade and base force in bad shape. Instead of a division scale landing, this was more like a corps scale landing. Since the airfield was only strafed, it was captured without damage - so it will be operational tomorrow - much better than the other Level 2 airfields captured already in Malaya.

There was action on the Yangtze today. Surprisingly, and unusually, two ROCN groups of junks and river craft forced their way bast a "river boom" backed up by gunboats - in broad daylight. Usually such actions happen at night - where the short range machine guns, mortars, AT guns and very old, short range former land artillery are effective. In daylight, the weapons lacked the range to score hits on the intruders - and the motionless boom vessels were unable to catch them either - once they got past. The enemy had failed to expect the traffic and didn't have aircraft searching or ready to strike such targets. So most of the lower Yangtze river craft have made it to the upper Yangtze - where most of the surviving ROC vessels now exist.

Civil airliners at Kai Tek (Hong Kong Airport) were undamaged yesterday - so they all flew to Chunking today.

This is a fairly interesting turn, integrating the way both sides orders (and luck) affected the game situation. Some of the outcomes are surprising.

The previously released Axis set of orders was revised because, on review (a process I recommend for important turns) I determined that I had failed to send aircraft to
Singora as well as to assign support to the attacking force at Mersing.

What happened will be divided by region:

Off Hawaii it was a very quiet day. One division of carriers retired to refuel. The only peculiar aspect of that is that the tankers failed to follow it as assigned. The other division moved SW from a position W of Oahu - and came up empty. Mifune and I, both sailors and students of naval history, strongly believe that a fleet is better off at sea than hiding in port. When there is a good chance of an attack, a fleet should honor doctrine and sortee. Wether or not this turns out well depends, as always in naval battles, on luck to a considerable degree. But the odds are on the side of a force seeking to evade in the middle of a large ocean. In this case, two US battleships have been sunk - exactly the long term result of the attack on the first day of the war - but 3/4 of the battle line survives - half of it wholly undamaged. The IJN may yet find and sink some or all of the rest - but it has lost them all for now. In fact, except for damaged USS Utah (she took a single 800 kg bomb hit yesterday, and acted as a superb decoy both in history and in this test - attracting attackers which otherwise would have attacked more worth-while targets), the entire battle line is headed to Christmas Island - where numbers of other ships are also headed to meet them - including two loaded replenishment tankers. Numbers of land and naval units have left the US West Coast to help the bases at Christmas and Tahiti become useful forward bases. Mifune also sent the now fully assembled, 25 ship, carrier task force SW to Sydney. A few empty transports and tankers are headed from the Hawaii area to the West Coast or to Panama, but generally everything is headed South. Only if the enemy fleet decides to head South will these moves need to be altered. What to do can be decided in detail in a few days. But before making a decision Mifune wanted to "see what the Kiddo Butai does" - meaning where it goes?

Off Luzon things were pretty bloody again. One still loaded transport, torpedoed yesterday, was torpedoed and sunk today having almost returned to Formosa. Numbers of actions by patrol boats, submarines and PT boats also complicated enemy landing operations, in one (early) instance causing a DOCKED ship to undock, evade, and then return to port. It is unclear if any landings were actually aborted. But the number of enemy units ashore on NW Luzon is well below IJA planning, although finally both airports at San Fernando and Viggan have significant numbers of aircraft and supplies to operate them. A follow on landing at (the historical landing site) of Mauban got most of the 65th Brigade ashore with a primary road leading West. But a US unit managed to get into the primary landing site (due East of Manila, at Infanta. That is because the Manila half of the road connection is a primary road - and likely also because the unit was rated as armor. So instead of investing Manila (probably tomorrow) as planned, shutting down both production and arrival of rapidly mobilizing Filipino formations, IJA must fight in the landing hex itself. This will delay by 2-3 critical days the investment of Manila, permitting more troops to arrive from various places - and probably permitting reinforcements to continue the fight at Infanta. The flanking move at Mauban may have been a good idea, as it will probably divert some or both divisions of the South Luzon Force to face it instead of being able to defend Manila directly.

On Malaya, very marginal land and sea based air strikes, causing few casualties (but slight disruption) to the defenders, surprisingly was enough to permit the landed tank force to eject them. Being very mobile, and possessing a primary road, there is every reason to think it can cross the peninsula in a day, cutting off the general retreat of units into Singapore as well as the assembly of divisions to defend in strength. However, the unit may have a problem defending the beachhead (if it crosses in force) or being too weak (if it splits to cover the beachhead and cut off the enemy). Such are the choices of an offensive player. Much of the Third Hiko-Shudan rested today and will be available to support the offensive whenever contact with the enemy is re-established, in both the North and South of Malaya.

A second landing at Wake Island, by a large naval garrison unit as well as the now well supplied SNLF, surprisingly failed. Once again, land based bomber support failed to fly (due to weather). And all the warships nearby are out of ammunition.
Wake is too strong to lose to the enemy but the units there need reinforcement to capture it - and no assets will be available for many days to do that. Indeed, the one force that might rapidly be available is (are) the two divisions of the Kiddo Butai off Hawaii. Committing them might help the United States Fleet to survive as a functional force. [Fully 3/4 of it has survived the first three days, half of the battle line entirely without damage - although two ships may have taken operational damage during a sprint today]

The assault on Babo succeeded, but the one at Hollandia surprisingly failed - because the invasion force was too small (a single company size airfield support unit) - never mind the tiny local defense. In this case, a cruiser-destroyer flotilla is already en route to back up the attackers. It may be, however, that actual troops are required - and none are nearby. This game is focused on rapid reduction of the SRA at the expense of rapid investment of more distant points.

In China, a guerilla unit near Nanking survived yet again, and moved in a direction which will force attention. This tiny unit has a tied up numbers of units, and they are still unable to contain it - although it is only a threat to the line of communications or to undefended towns. That is how guerilla units are supposed to work. At another location, near Peking on the main rail-road LOC to the North, another such unit also survived, moving into rough country to its West - forcing major enemy units to follow it lest it cut LOC in several different directions. Other such formations are moving to cut LOC in other places, so the consolidation of NE China is going to take a while.

Numbers of actions, including air-sea, took place along the lower Yangtze. Surprisingly the ROC vessels generally did very well, forcing the barrier of gunboats and the 'river boom' vessels at Ichang several times - inflicting moderate damage. A number of ROC vessels were lost or damaged, but the vast majority survived, and most of the ships which were nominally isolated from the up-river forces have now been able to join them.

A few air strikes into the South China sea sunk or damaged MINOR vessels. That in spite of a general sortee by large and small ships from Hong Kong - which expects to be invaded tomorrow. The sheer number of targets at sea and luck meant the large ships entirely escaped attacks. Very large numbers of ships and task groups which left other ports previously are now well across the South China Sea - generally headed to Miri (which can refuel them). Ships from the Philippines are even closer and will start arriving in the next 2-3 days.

The San (i.e. Three) Kiddo Butai sprinted South into the Makassar Strait, sinking several ships (from Tarakan) and striking the airfield at Balikpapan. But evasion caused both warships (a Brooklyn class cruiser and a four piper, in separate places) to successfully sprint to (or at least close to) Soerabaja - where, if they suffered any engine damage - they can repair and join the now otherwise assembled ABDA force. This has significant numbers of USN, RN and RNN vessels. Unfortunately, there is no assembled, powerful air force on Java to do much more than provide tracking information on enemy forces. The B-17 force moved its undamaged planes to Kendari. The rest will be abandoned - as the entire force at Cagayan began moving
into the Mountains - where the Philippine Army will make a stand against the invaders. The regiment and base force at Davao have begun to withdraw - in spite of not being attacked - because it is assumed that with land or sea based air support the enemy will win when they do attack. Mifune's idea is to assemble as much as possible in the center, with as many supplies as can be moved to feed them. He is in command, and lucid, but unable to do more than give oral orders: I am his staff and ruthlessly implement his orders - so he can see the results of years of his work creating this scenario. My modus operendi is to 'switch sides' mentally when I do turn entry, combined with rigidly ignoring things I 'do not know' because I saw the other side's display. Instead decisions are based on doctrine and command policy guidance. This process permits me to spot eratta a normal player might miss - because I know what the design intent was and I am seeing both sides displays. There is some eratta - but much less than I expected. One case - a ship pointing at the wrong class file - will be fixed in the next update (which is mainly a map update).

This is an Allied Situation After Combat Report combined with the Allied replay (if you get the email form of this).

The 'centrufugal disaster' continues - but there are some successes for the Allies.
The defense of Luzon has more or less succeeded. Mifune did not want to withdraw from the island NOR retreat into Bataan - which will remain a problem due to its coastal defenses (and last longer if it does not have too many units consuming supplies). Instead, he opted for urban defense of Manila - with maximum supplies - and wanted to buy time for reserves to form up. The surprise enemy landing was a problem - but attacking into it has stopped it cold! It now appears the Allies will be able to implement his planned strategy - with most of the units on Luzon ending up in a Fortress Manila situation. The air force is now withdrawing (less exhausted units first - to reduce attrition - other units will fly after resting) via bases in North Borneo - while it is still possible. All three B-17 squadrons had elements reach Java today -
after a stopover at Kendari.

Malaya is an unmitigated disaster. Its air force is gutted. None of the divisions will be able to form. The LOC North from Singapore is now effectively cut. And there are almost no ships to evacuate troops near enough to matter. One group - with elements of a HQ - is unloading at Djambi - and it will attempt to go back for the rest (if it survives). Malaya is likely to be lost with substantially all its troops. That complicates Java's defense: no major reinforcements from Malaya or the Philippines (other than ships or a few air units) will be able to join the Dutch. Nor is there time to move troops from India or Australia - even assuming the decision was made to send them (which in fact it has not).

Wake is a miracle. Fully ten (of twelve) fighters remain operational - and one more exists under repair! Several ships have been sunk - including a large AK again today. The enemy must take time to send forces to reduce this island.

Six of Eight battleships - and an even greater proportion of other types - of ships of the United States Fleet survived the first three days. These are at sea - harder to sink than in port - although USS Utah and a handful of small vessels will try to return to Oahu today. The Hawiian Air Force also returned to Pearl - afraid of an air raid on it at Hilo - possible from the two carrier divisions still hanging around. Oahu isn't in good shape, but has ample aviation support and is now capable of flight operations (with high levels of attrition due to damaged runways). It will get better every day.
Halsey's carriers have escaped the area entirely and may constitute an effective strategic surprise, based on Sydney. The rest of the fleet is not out of the woods yet - but is assembling slowly en route South to Christmas - or in some cases - support vessels are headed to Tahiti. Almost every available reinforcement is also headed to Christmas or Tahiti - but the first tanker for Pearl also is loading today. Many empty vessels from the entire Pacific area are also headed to the West Coast or to Panama - to get units, supplies, fuel or even oil for various parts of the theater. Every warship in the South Seas is either at or inbound to Sydney - where the few damaged ones should come out or repair in a day or so. Most of the Aussie militia divisions are assembled or moving to points where they can assemble. The critical problems are (a) Australia will run out of oil and (b) Australia lacks enough units to defend itself - never mind reinforce other places. In spite of that, supplies and fuel are en route to Noumea and coast defense unit may follow soon.

China is still sorting out the confused initial situation. Minus a few losses, almost every vessel on the Lower Yangtze has escaped to the Upper Yangtze. At the same time, almost every vessel in the South has made it well into the South China Sea,
en route to Miri or Jesselton or to Palembang or Batavia if they have the range. Some Chinese reserves are moving from
Chunking to the end of the railroad, where they can rail to critical points like Changsha and Liu Chow. Both points will get a
strong corps, a brigade of artillery, and several specialist regiments. The ROCAF has effectively assembled at Chunking
except for really green units training in the rear, the AVG at Kunming (now at full strength), and forward
recon bases at Sian, Nanning, Heng Chow and Changsha.

This turn was a compound disaster - disaster here, there, almost everywhere!

After yesterday's surprise by the enemy carriers near Christmas Island,
a general decision/order was made to assemble as much of the Fleet and inbound
support vessels as possible at Tahiti. That included Admiral Halsey's carriers -
which could either move from there West to Australia, East to the US West Coast,
or North to Hawaii. A third carrier - at San Francisco - left to meet his force there.
So did many ground and air units, and ships laden with fuel, from LA. [Two ships,
both with air units for Alaska, didn't survive the day]

In spite of the Assumption the enemy carriers might retire to refuel - they are far from home - forces North of Christmas generally headed West to evade - and the destroyers which had been escorting the battleships lost yesterday sprinted all the way to Hawaii. It was calculated where the enemy might be and where he might be able to search effectively. It turned out the slow battleships and even slower support ships didn't go far enough West - and so were inside the enemy search and strike radius after all. A high price was paid for that error.

Nevertheless, the one remaining division of battleships, and many other vessels, ranging from fast warships to slow support ships, did clear the area and make
good progress toward Tahiti. It would be unpleasant if the enemy followed them yet again!

In the Java Sea, evasion was generally successful. In the South China Sea, it was generally not: the only limitation on ships lost was the enemy capacity to deliver ordnance! It was a bloody day.

The defense of the LOC to Singapore held in Malaya. Much of the rest of what survives of the Air Forces withdrew to NEI. The ABDA force reassembled at the "other Christmas Island" in the Indian Ocean - beyond enemy carrier search
range.

The Philippine 41st Division, opposing the enemy landings at Mauban, was not as successful as the regulars just to the North, at Infanta, have been for the last two days It was soundly thrashed and ejected from the hex. A general withdrawal into Manila has begun - now units in the jungles generally have reached the primary
road/rail net. Supplies have been built up nicely at Manila. There are few reserves left to mobilize in this scenario.

On Mindinao, the airfields were abandoned in favor of defense in the interior. The enemy captured both airfield hexes (Cagayan and Davao) today - unopposed. The enemy did devastate the larger of the airfields, so it cannot be used until it is repaired.

In China, the thrust threatening Wuhan was repulsed with the help of air power. Air power also contributed to other enemy assaults - but a few on good defensive terrain held. Hong Kong lost another fortification level, but took no significant casualties, and
at least is delaying the enemy successfully. The enemy probably needs to rest to build up supplies and recover from the effects before attacking again at Hong Kong.
Enemy air power is unexpectedly great. So is the number of enemy ground units. The enemy must have sent reinforcements from Manchukuo, Korea and/or Japan - possibly all three. Only in SE China has the enemy generally failed to capture positions. A single enemy division is widely spread out in that area, and not combat effective.

Units moving by sea to Burma and Malaya are unloading at Columbo. Partly this is because they lacked supplies and need to 'stock up' before being committed. Partly this is so they can convert from strategic mode to combat mode. And partly this is because it is not yet clear where to send them? Only that the original plans were perhaps not well formed. Ceylon is the 'center four squares of the chessboard' of the Indian Ocean theater - and it may be it needs to be defended by more than just local troops. It will take time for other formations to arrive.

Australia is tentatively assembling ships and units at Sydney. This is to be a central point from which units may dispatch, both by rail and by sea. A plan to reinforce Noumea with 16 coast defense guns is under consideration. A US force intended for the Philippines, and diverted to Noumea by Mifune, is about to arrive there - but it lacks coast defense guns.

Eight squadrons of aircraft departed LA for Tahiti today. Seven are allocated to Australia - at least in terms of command. The eighth - a Marine Fighter unit -
is nominally to go to Samoa. But all will go to Tahiti first. All ships in the South Pacific
formerly headed to the West Coast are also headed to Tahiti now. The intend is to maximize the flexibility of what is available by assembling at a single point. Provided, of course, the enemy retires. The calculation is Tahiti is beyond the logistic reach of the enemy.

The enemy carriers seem to have dithered near Christmas Island. Some damaged units are moving to Hawaii to repair. B-17s are starting to return to the islands. The airfields are restored. Most ships are retiring on Tahiti where all sorts of reinforcements are being sent. The only problem is time and wether or not the enemy elects to raid that island. IF there was time, the defending force might well outweigh the one enemy force in the area.

The South China Sea, Philippines and Malaya disasters continue to evolve. But many aircraft are withdrawing to Java where it is hoped to make a better stand. The first reinforcements for Java began loading at Columbo today - a Ghurka Brigade and ships that might be useful in an evacuation of the island laden with supplies.

The AVG successfully raided Canton today, aided by the green units of CAF.
It dominated the air as far as Hong Kong - all without losing a single plane. [ One
bomber was damaged! ] The Hell's Angels squadron racked up an even dozen kills in the air. Chinese bombers got more enemy planes on the ground and took the airfield about half down.

That was offset by serious opposition in North China. The enemy appears to be launching an offensive in force with serious ground and air power - apparently committing air units historically sent to the SRA as well as reinforcing them with still more from Korea, Manchukuo and/or Japan. The Yellow River Plan will not hold out very long. The next big fights are for Chengchow and Changsha. Hong Kong will likely fall on the next assault.

The Allied Password is WMHALSEY
First, lets correct an error in yesterday's commentary: the Hell's Angles Squadron, with no losses or even damaged aircraft, did MUCH better than even the glowing word's I wrote yesterday indicated. It, alone, scored all 33 air to air combat kills of the Allies in the entire Pacific Theater of War!

Second, let me say that Mifune was released from hospital and able to review Allied strategy and policy at length for about two hours. He is cheerful and generally pleased with this test run of a scenario he spent years working on.

Allied forces generally are on the defensive, but hope survives. Mifune anticipates the enemy carriers and battleships must withdraw to points they can rearm. This means, when the current enemy forces in the South China Sea withdraw, they must go to Shanghai or possibly Japan. Other potential future Japanese bases (e.g. Manila, Singapore, Hong Kong) are not yet available to the enemy. It is possible this will give the Allies the time needed to assemble a reasonable combined arms force to defend Java. Both British and US fighters are successfully making the transit - most of them have arrived already. All the US bomber squadrons have also made the trip (except for one B-17, embarked today on a ship because it cannot fly). Two squadrons have converted over to B-25s because they are very maneuverable, have good offensive loads, and repair much faster than four engine bombers. The third squadron will convert when it is allowed to (after its last plane is combined - or lost en route). Most of the B-17s are being sent to Pearl Harbor - from which several options exist.

Almost all Allied forces in the SRA are converging on Java, except for submarines, which are taking up offensive stations on enemy lines of communications. Almost all Allied forces in the Eastern, Central and Southern Pacific are converging on Tahiti -
although long range aircraft have also gone to (wholly undamaged) Pearl Harbor and the first tanker is loading for Pearl today. Most Allied forces in the Indian Ocean area are converging on Columbo, unless engaged in LOC work to support the economy. The Burma Division assembled today at Rangoon and is moving forward to defend its approaches. SE Burma will be defended until it is clear this is pointless: units are moving forward to defend the border crossings - not just the bases. Forces in Burma may withdraw into China rather than into India. And some Chinese units are moving toward Burma (similar to history). The entire ROC Air Force is being reorganized. Green units are dumping planes into pools. Veteran units then are or will use the pools to upgrade types. The idea is to get the good planes in the hands of the veterans. If we did well with green fliers yesterday, what might we do with experienced ones? Instead of selecting for plane quality or aircrew quality, we intend to have both. That will take about 3 or 4 days to work out - and fully 60 days to get back the withdrawn units. By which time it is hopes there are more new production machines to work with. China has a considerable air force in RHS - we keep finding new types of planes and even new units to add. So far Minfune intends to keep the China Air Task Force in China too. The idea is to suck Japanese high quality air units into China and AWAY FROM the SRA.

The Allied Password is WMHALSEY

In the South Central Pacific, a single task force appears just East of
Christmas Island. It is reported to be entirely warships, but no carriers.
It may be the KB, or the KB plus tanker force, or it might even be the
tankers misidentified. No other enemy tracks appear. The problem is
that this force is certainly dangerous to the many support ships streaming
in from the NE en route to Tahiti (including those originally sent to
Christmas itself). Turning them around guarantees a delay in their
cargos' reaching a forward base. Not turning them around risks their loss.
Another possibility is that KB may head toward Christmas itself - a point
of convergence of now literally everything (an order confirmed by Mifune
yesterday). They ships from the theater will arrive BEFORE fuel or
supplies or ground and air units from the US arrive. Continuing this
ad hot plan risks losing many ships. The only limit of risk is that the
enemy appears to be operating only three carriers in the area and they
must have expended most of their sortees - and all their torpedoes.

The second set of three carriers appeared off Wake today. Maybe.
Only one of them flew aircraft. Maybe two went after Halsey's force after it
sank two ships near Tarawa? Anyway, in spite of yet another landing,
Wake held again, and the enemy suffered badly from his shock attack.

Units in Malaya ARE able to get around the enemy force nominally cutting
the LOC. They had to walk around rather than use the railroad, but they
are leaking in numbers. They also are able to combine sub-units into
parent formations.

I discovered a problem re the Chinese Air Force. Similar to the USAAF and
USMC, this is a data entry issue dating to stock. Air groups which disband or
withdraw return one day later with LATE WAR aircraft! I cannot fix this re
ongoing games, but an update today will prevent it in new games. I am going to
just remove the "return as" pointer from the air group records. It does not appear
these references were meaningful anyway - because they point at formations planned but never sent to China - and which I had thought were removed because I 9999ed
them out. I also found a couple of Chinese units assigned to the wrong HQ - a legacy
from when they were in the wrong area. These too will be fixed (are already fixed) in today's update.

The Chinese Air Force reorganization is substantially completed but needs several days before the aircraft are able to be used by their new units. We now have
the few experienced units outfitted with the best planes available.

The Philippine Air Force substantially completed its withdrawal today and is a significant addition to the forces assembling on Java.

The Allied Password is WMHALSEY

In the South Pacific, USS Arizona and USS Pennsylvania, and many cruisers and destroyers, arrived at Tahiti today. Admiral Halsey's carriers are about two days
sailing to the NW. USS Saratoga, with an old Omaha class cruiser and a few old destroyers, is about five days to the NE.

[Digression: Saratoga was the only USN carrier damaged by the force which attacked Pearl Harbor! No, she wasn't there. But the was torpedoed and damaged by the Advanced Force (i.e. the submarines), sent there, and before the battle IJN believed those subs were more likely to hit capital ships than carrier planes were!]

Strung out from Tahiti to Southern California are dozens of task forces, most of them laden with supplies, fuel, air units or land units of all types. To the West and NW are
many task forces, mainly of empty, long range transports or tankers. Originally these formations had various destinations. But for the last few days almost all have been reassigned to meet at Tahiti. It is intended to 'sort out' units and then send some of them all along the SLOC to Australia.

[Digression: Historically the US built TWO parallel lines of communication. RHS has identified ALL the bases for both of them, and all now have the correct potential builds for ports and airfields.]

To 'protect' - at least in the sense of warning - this long string of task groups converging on Tahiti, several squadrons have been sent forward from Hawaii -
as far as American Samoa. The only points on this chain without a PBY squadron
are Christmas Island (due to the presence of the enemy carrier force) and Canton Island (which has no supplies and it has not been possible to send any). Today we will send more PBYs forward - especially to Christmas island - because it appears the enemy carriers are leaving the area.

The present 'picture' from air recon indicates there are two enemy task forces West
of Christmas Island: a large one (10 ships, all warships) and a small one (two ships, no indication of ship types) 'lagging behind' by two hexes. Both appear on a course
WNW - probably intending to return to Kwajalein or Truck. They are 6 plus hexes from Christmas and Palmyra - close enough to be a problem - but unsupported by enemy long range, land based patrol planes or bombers to find targets for them. No enemy search aircraft have been sighted. It is believed the enemy has no track on any Allied task group in the area. Nevertheless, this is a powerful enemy force and so more patrols will be assigned throughout the theater to improve the 'picture' reports create.

Wake Island fell today to a renewed ground assault supported by air strikes from enemy carriers and by naval gunfire support by Tone. Curiously, it is reported to have seven enemy fighters on station already! That second division of the KB now is free to retire on Truck or possibly for other operations.

The third major carrier force (made of smaller CVs like Hiryu, Soryu, Hiyo and Junyo) is nearly in the center of the South China Sea. There are no longer any
Allied ships in that area. But all along the Northern Coast of Borneo and the Western
coast of Luzon, and at a couple of islands South of Luzon, all ships able to sail
are at sea again - bound for Soerabaja generally. This amounts to about half the number of ships which were trying to cross that sea three days ago. A number of burning and otherwise damaged ships remain at Miri - unfit to attempt crossing. The PT boats at Hong Kong set out for Luzon today. Another enemy unit arrived today - and Hong Kong may well fall tomorrow.

Numbers of locations fell in China, SE, E and NE. Yet the Chinese managed one effective counterattack by the "25th Army Force" (more or less an Army in
European terms) composed of the 25th and 50th Corps. Although it is too soon for the reorganized ROCAF, it still managed an offensive strike as well as seizing air control near Ning Tan, one hex SE of Nan Ch'ang.

[Technical note: RHS generally uses names from the Wade Giles system of spelling because they were the most used in the WW2 era. It does not use Pinyin - a system not invented until 1954 and not made official for a generation thereafter - since it was invented by Christian missionaries!]

The same squadron (Hell's Angels) which scored 33 victories without a loss two days ago flew again - and was successful - but didn't get any more kills today. However,
a scratch four plane detachment of US pilots from CAF HQ DID score no less than 9 kills - also without losing any planes. The same bombers which flew two days ago (in their SB-2s), supported by a flight of Vildebeestes and they were effective in attacking ground troops. A squadron of moderately skilled pilots with Hawk 75s were able to protect the bombers (because AVG caused there to be no enemy fighters around) - their only virtue being that the entire squadron was ready to fly. And a squadron of HS-123 dive bombers - the most experienced bomber unit in China - struck at Nan Ch'ang air base, without effect (probably because of lack of recon data from the previous day). This attack soundly defeated a front line IJA division and forced it to retreat from a position it captured only two days ago.

Another attack farther North turned into a disaster because an enemy division arrived in the hex before the assault went home. But another unit managed to cut an important LOC and two more are trying to do the same thing in different places. More important, the force moved forward to protect the right flank of Chengchow has arrived at the Yellow River, and several reinforcements arrived by rail from Sian
to protect the left flank at Loyang. The enemy will have to take the time to fight
for Chengchow, a critical road and rail junction. Without this, Wuhan will not have
any RR LOC any time soon. But the enemy is marching to contact in force
and trying to clear the lines of communication so a powerful army can be fed in this area - at least enough so it can attack every two or three days. This is a delaying
action only - China can not effectively defend in open country - only in forests, mountains, rough country and cities.

In the South Seas no enemy task forces are being tracked at all.
But per doctrine (both Mifune and I are USN veterans), ships are better
off at sea than in port if there is an attack. So the ships with no damage at
Tahiti are formed up into task groups. Halsey assigned air groups to search,
escort and attack duty, on general principles. The very first convoy from the US arrived - two ships with a CD artillery unit to defend Tahiti's capital. There was
no reason to justify discontinuing Mifune's policy - so all ships in the area
continue to move toward Tahiti. Many of the air units in the area increased
their search values - generally to 50% or the highest level likely to be sustained.

The enemy finally struck Miri today with bombers from Indochina. Most of the damaged ships present were sunk, and the survivors no doubt will burn out or flood out. But most of the vessels there have now escaped. Near NE Borneo and in the
Visaya's, ships generally resumed their movements toward Soerabajal.

Not much action in the Philippines, where the enemy is moving into Manila,
or mopping up. Malaya saw many units 'walk' toward Singapore right around the enemy at Johore Bahru. Two of the units from Kuantan made it to the Eastern Malaya RR - where they are getting ready to fail out to the South.

Hong Kong and several minor locations fell in China. The CAF withdrew again.

Only one ship left the US West Coast today - no more are available at this time.
China is preparing to defend river lines and good defensive terrain generally.
The CAF continued to reform as still better combinations of aircraft and experience were found. It will take 3-4 more days to have the CAF in the form intended (to support ground units).

IF you want to know what happened from the Japanese point of view,
you MUST read the Axis AAR. Things look VERY different to both sides.

The Allies had all available long range aircraft set on search missions,
usually at the highest value that can be sustained - one or two were
searching more intensively than that. But the number of search formations
is small, even though I added B-17 bomber squadrons and an LB-30 unit
to the list. The ocean is large. Because of the decision to assemble everything
at Tahiti Nui, and because of long ocean transits dictating it would be necessary to refuel (even if not rearm), the carrier TF was set to go to Tahiti with that purpose.
On principle, all three carriers (one is far to the NE) were set to fighter escort,
CAP, and naval attack. It appears the US carriers reached base precisely when the Japanese came out of hiding - three hexes to the NE! This was detected and the carriers were engaged. Three enemy carriers and a battleship were reported hit, and another battleship escaped harm altogether. But before that strike came in, a Japanese carriers hit both US carriers. As well several other ships were engaged and sometimes hit. But the real problem was that Enterprise took 8 bomb hits, mixed between 250 kg bombs and 60 kg bombs, and was unable to recover aircraft. There is no nearby land airfield. So ALL of Enterprise's strike group ended up landing on Lexington! Since more than 5 groups on a single carrier prevents flying, Lexington cannot fly either.

Many other valuable ships were nearby. NONE of them were engaged. A CD unit and a para unit are still unloading! The heavy surface action group was not engaged and may not have been detected at all. But almost nothing in the long SLOC has arrived, and agonizing choices must be made about these convoys.

Many more ships were assigned to move to Singapore to pick up troops. It appears most of the forces on Malaya will be able to reach the city after all. The enemy is engaged in a march to contact over a secondary road - possibly a mistake - and many Allied units have made it to Johore Bahru already. The enemy is similarly marching to contact at Manila. Almost everything on Luzon has managed to reach Manila, along with about 78,000 tons of supplies. The Philippine Division, and a tank battalion, retreated into Manila today - having successfully blocked an attempt to invest it sooner. No enemy raids over Rangoon today. Several actions in China,
the biggest one being capturing of a town (Tsiaotso) North of Chengchow. The ROCAF probably completed reorganizing today - and looks rather good with the better planes in the hands of the better pilots. In a few days we will attempt to
hurt enemy airpower in that theater, with a view to causing them to send Zeros there.
This is a deliberate feature of Mifune's strategy.

The Allied Password is WMHALSEY

The United States Fleet attempted, and succeeded, in entirely evading contact with the enemy carrier force off Tahiti. Momentary consideration was given to surface forces attempting to engage the enemy carriers: Mifune rejected it in the circumstances. So ships generally withdrew at full speed to the SW - with a few exceptions - going into port at various minor island ports to 'hide'. A very few ships stayed at or continued on to Tahiti, which was expected might sustain air or bombardment attacks. Unloading of two land units was interrupted to facilitate this evasion. The enemy was tracked (ten hexes due North, tankers reported to be in the same hex as the carriers), but no ships reported overflights by carrier planes. That should mean the enemy has no track on us. His movement implies a general withdrawal. So we will return to Tahiti tomorrow to sort things out. Enterprise - still burning furiously - was able to offload its remaining aircraft today. Lexington - also still burning - was still unable to conduct operations or to land air units. It went to an island SE of Tahiti - in case it was spotted it would not lead the enemy to the rest of the fleet. It may be fit to resume flight operations tomorrow. But it needs time to repair serious operational damage. Enterprise's may burn out. If it does not, it will need a year or more in repair.

Numbers of task groups outbound from the US now head for Hawaii. This is a better forward base, with enough air units to matter. It will become the new (old) primary operations center - now the enemy seems to have left the area. Tahiti will become the end of one of the more Southern SLOC, Christmas Island the other (just as IRL).
But all this needs time.

The enemy landed one hex from Rabaul. Australia is grim - there is not much of a US fleet to send - and it may well not be sent at all - being held to defend Hawaii and the SLOC. A scratch force of six cruisers has assembled - two Aussie CA, two RNZN CL, and two US CA (caught escorting convoys when the war began). The reinforcements for the Philippines (actually sent to Australia) arrived at Noumea.
So has a regiment of Aussie six inch CD guns. A US Air HQ that formed up there
will use the ships to carry it to the Australian mainland - which needs a US Air HQ.
Australia is considering sending troops to Port Moresby, but it is likely too late. The same for Horne Island, again probably now too late. But Lark Battalion from Rabaul has begun to reach Darwin - so in theory the Aussie 8th Division may be able to form (if two brigades manage to escape Malaya). 2/3 of the third brigade are already at Darwin.

The enemy landed near Ambon, and moved into Manado today. The ABDA force left Soerabaja for Soerabaja, with a view to attacking the latter force. A smaller force also left Soerabaja with a view to attacking enemy amphibs near Ambon. Most of the effort in the area went into evacuating Malaya. Almost the entire force has reached Johore Bahru or Singapore - surprising given the enemy landing at Mersing. But that came at the price of no active defense of the territory. The fight for Kota Bahru indicated our troops would not do well in contact with this invading army in any case. But we must stand at Johore Bahru - it will take time to evacuate much from Singapore - partly because too few ships are available to do it well.

The retreat of the ships from the South China Sea has gone well - after the disaster of several days ago - because it changed directions in favor of the Malacca Strait (the enemy carriers once having been in that area now having retired altogether). But too many US and British aircraft have arrived on Java for its base forces: we must get more base forces to Java. The problem is time and numbers of shipping. The addition of around a hundred more ships from China and the Philippines will be a welcome addition. The problem is the pace of enemy operations does not allow for systematic evacuation and 'stripping' of bases of supplies, fuel, oil and resources.
It is not even clear that the first reinforcements from Ceylon can reach Java in time to be a factor in defending it? Things look pretty grim in this area as well.

Rangoon, the only point in Burma attacked so far, suffered its third raid by a squadron of Zeros. The first one got a single Buffalo. The second one got two. Today we lost four! It appear the Buffalo cannot stand up to this new Japanese fighter. It also appears they have enough to commit some to land operations.
Its great advantage appears to be range - these raids seem to have come all the way from Bangkok.

Things went pretty badly in China today as well. We lost battles in SE China, East China, and NE China - although one fight in mountains went pretty well. As well, the Chinese Air Force is almost ready to fight. I did reorganize still more of it today, with a view to optimizing aircraft and experience of aircrews. Mifune wants to launch a proper air offensive in China, with a view to sucking resources from the SRA to contain it. In a couple of days I think we can mount an effective offensive. Test runs without proper sorted out units and only one squadron (and one element) of the AVG, scored 42 enemy aircraft kills in the air alone - more on the ground - for zero losses!
I think it may be possible to seriously challenge the enemy in China. If I am wrong, the US will probably remove the AVG (as it did historically).

Attached is the Allied replay file.

The big news of the day is that Akagi returned, sans other carriers, to raid
Tahiti again. The strike caught USS Lexington - still on fire - just as it arrived
back at the island - having 'evaded' the day before. Sunk on the first strike
(never mind no Kates flew in it), the second one sank two support ships and
damaged several others (again the Kates failed to attack). The battleships,
with two Omaha and 4 ancient DD, plus four modern cruisers and 6 DD, separately (due to different speeds), retired West to Sydney. They were not at risk to this attack. Most of the rest of the fleet survived, many still en route back to Tahiti from
nearby islands. Meanwhile, USS Enterprise, not in danger of sinking yesterday, had 55 flotation hits today, and 99 system damage, with 75 fires still burning. At 99 system damage, it cannot put out many fires (maybe one if it is lucky) - so it will certainly burn out. She was ordered scuttled on the next turn by Mifune. As well,
four squadrons landed at Tahiti have apparently disappeared into pools - they are not present on the island.

The first assault on Manila somewhat surprisingly was able to reduce fortification level. So Manila may be at risk in spite of having assembled almost all units on Luzon plus 80,000 tons of supplies.

The enemy cut the RR LOC to Singapore by airborne assault. Many more enemy units have landed at Mersing (7 in addition to something like 5 more at Jahore Bahru).
The only semi-good news is that evacuation is experiencing less casualties than expected and numbers of ships have been found to increase the rate of evacuation.
Another bit of semi-good news is that the ships retreating down the Makassar Strait seem harassed only by a submarine and some of them picked up the base force at Tarakan. Tankers are going to Balikpapan to get oil. Fighter cover flew there today. The main ABDA surface force arrives there tomorrow - to meet the tankers and review offensive options.

Burma has gone bad in air combat - a single squadron of (18) Zeros raided about days ago, scoring one Buffalo. It attacked the next day ago, scoring two more. It took yesterday off, then tried again, scoring four. Mifune ordered withdrawal. I found only 4 left - and upgraded the whole unit to Hurricanes - and sent them to Mandalay.

China found several ways to better enhance the distribution of aircraft - so we have to delay our planned air offensive by probably 3 days. But it looks like it will be a quite powerful force. Preliminary experiments with just a tiny fraction of it scored 42 kills in air combat and several more on the ground, as well as airfield and aircraft damage - all without losing any aircraft. We can field a force about four times larger and I hope to wipe out a forward enemy base along with aircraft critical to his offensive. Mifune's orders are to make it so bad the Japanese send first line aircraft to China rather than to the SRA, to take pressure off the Allies.

Attached is the Allied replay file.

While it looks very much like the one attached to Axis reports, the Combat Reports here below are the ALLIED version - obtained after running file 001 to get the Allied replay.

For the Allies, the game is very much more a combination of strategic moves integrated with operational moves. Much of what the Allies do is made in total ignorance of the enemy plan, based on general principles, logistical necessity,
and map reading. One builds fortifications and supply stocks, moves units to points of assembly in the hope it facilitates future operational requirements, etc. I do not report all the details of these moves: the decision to send a forward Burma battalion to the Andaman Islands - which has a small base force but no garrison - for example. The decision to send a small seaplane scouting force to that same area (but not to Port Blair, which is likely to be a recon target). An almost carrier force has also left Trincomalee - it is limited to a single CVL (Hermes) and carries only one squadron of specialized (radar equipped, ASW armed, too heavy to fit a torpedo) Swordfish. But these might be useful in some circumstances - is also headed in that direction to hide nearby incase the seaplanes spot a target of opportunity. Many such contingency operations are having the groundwork laid - particularly on land. For example
the base forces and garrison units of NW Borneo are headed to the interior river
port of Sintang, to establish a long range, recon base (which turned out to be surprisingly useful in Level I Test Nine). Mifune directed in particular that interior land bases be established where units and supplies and terrain would combine to make rooting them out difficult and time consuming. Such bases are being established in more than a few places.

The great crisis of the day was the appearance of an apparently strong pair of task forces four hexes from Tarakan, one of them launching a Val strike on the port with effect. The ABDA surface force and many tankers and other ships are at Balikpapan. The slower ships cannot possibly escape if this force moves South
even at cruising speed. The fast ships can either escape or attack - but it is unclear the enemy lacks surface power - and many of his task forces have had strong surface components in them. What to do will be the primary focus of the next Allied turn.

The great crisis of yesterday - the unexpected return of Akagi to the Tahiti area -
led to a general pattern of hiding and evading in that area. Some formations re-tasked for Hawaii instead of Tahiti. As well, a submarine at Christmas Island caused the task force there to re-task to a nearby Fanning Island for the moment - its destroyer escort proving inadequate to protecting the ships.

Numbers of USAAF fighter squadrons in the US were withdrawn - those with the least experience - to dump planes into the pools. Mifune directed that for the interim, Allied naval forces must operate under land based fighter cover. That means, for the US,
depending on the P-40B in particular. Until drop tanks become available, it is the nearest thing we have to a fighter plane with both adequate range and adequate numbers. Only one of four squadrons on Java has the P-40B - but it is hoped we can upgrade all four to using it this week. The three USAAF bomber squadrons on Java are not all at full strength with B-25s. They are supported by a larger squadron (of 16 vice 8) Hudsons which have only one hex less range (at both normal and extended range). Two engine bombers turn around faster than four engine bombers do. They also are more maneuverable and in my view more likely not to be hit in combat. And replacement B-25s are generally more numerous than four engine bombers at this point.

The last available transports at the primary US port of embarcation (LA, which is in better supply than San Francisco and which can share ASW assets with San Diego and other ports) were used to send three more USMC squadrons to the South Pacific - no detail plan - just for use as may be required locally once they arrive. Until we get more ships, no more is going to be sent.

Chinese forces are generally engaged in complicating enemy LOC or delaying actions with a view to protecting Changsha, Liu Chow and Sian in the medium term. In all three cases, that means fighting for positions well forward of them to delay.
It is intended to combine air offensives with land attacks (as already happened once) to force the enemy to send more troops and planes to China (instead of the SRA) - a strategic priority of Mifune. It is hard to tell precisely how much of what stayed in China, otherwise planned to join the SRA, or how much of the reinforcements sent to China, are/were intended anyway, and how many are because of unexpected difficulties encountered? But it is certain this plan must have effect over time.

Allied Password WMHALSEY

The attachment is the Allied replay.

The Combat Reports below are those for the Alliess and differ in some details from a similar one for the Axis (which is in the last mailing).

Enemy submarines were somewhat effective off Hawaii, destroying a third of a newly arriving infantry regiment. But Queen Elizabeth managed to dock undamaged, as did several other ships. Considerable air power in this area is focused on ASW operations, as are many destroyers and other ASW ships. But none were sunk or badly damaged to day, unfortunately. Yorktown is en route to Pearl, to join Saratoga, and form the only important Allied carrier force on the map.

In the South Seas, Allied forces are only slowly recovering from Ozawa's raid. Six land units are now at least partially ashore on Tahiti. There are not yet significant numbers of engineers nor adequate stocks of supplies and fuel. There is no runway yet. A big AK sank from battle damage today. It will take time to sort out forces in this area. There isn't even enough fuel to send damaged warships to Pearl or to the West coast for repairs. But lots of units, fuel and supplies are inbound.

A cruiser destroyer flotilla is SW of Fiji, bound for Sydney. The only battleship division in the Pacific is farther South, and not yet West of Fiji's longitude - with the same destination. The only significant Allied naval force in the area (not counting these two task forces) is at Noumea, which has significant land defenses - reinforcements initially intended for the Philippines having landed there. Rabaul and Kappa Kappa fell to enemy landing forces.

The enemy CVL force rounded Celebes and apparently is headed to Manado, which is invested by an enemy brigade.

14th Army continues to mop up Luzon, but has not yet captured Manila. 16th Army is trying to defeat the Mindinao Force Corps at Malaybalay.

25th Army is mopping up Malaya North of Johore Bahru. The enemy at Johore Bahru is strong enough to attack, but should need several days to capture the location. Surprising numbers of troops have been able to escape by sea, generally sailing to Java directly. Minor vessels are creating the illusion of troop evacuation to Djambi, but really carry resources or supplies. Earlier units which used that route are strung out all the way from there to the Southern tip of the island, where many have escaped by sea, usually to Batavia. It looks like most of the units on Malaya will be able to evacuate. However, the attempt to evacuate the Indian Army 22nd Brigade from Malacca substantially failed, and the already weak force was driven from the town by enemy infantry and airborne infantry today. It has many disorganized squads. The forces at Johore Bahru are in very good shape, however, so Singapore still has time to evacuate. Numbers of ships are beginning to arrive. Enemy air power and submarines are causing some casualties, but not many. Indian Army 8th Brigade, unable to move South, will try to return to Kuantan, so it can get supplies to be combat effective. It has zero other options.

Burma is substantially ready for an enemy invasion. Troops are organized to delay the enemy advance to Rangoon, but to offer more serious resistance in the North.
Supplies are moving up the Irrawaddy as well as by RR to Mandalay and points North.

In South China, the Liu Chow - Changsha LOC is now substantially reinforced, and the approaches are substantially covered to complicate approach, as planned.
However, an attack to thwart an enemy incursion along the Yangtze, at Changteh, did not go very well, in spite of committing air support and no enemy air opposition. A bigger attempt to dominate the air at Ying Tan, an expected enemy attack point (being on the front line) utterly failed. Fighters on area CAP fought over Changsha, instead. Bombers didn't fly at all. Enemy air did fly, as expected, and the enemy captured he hex. This was a surprise - the entire AVG and many Chinese Air Force units were committed.

In the Yellow River area, the deliberate delaying action is going more or less as planned. Farther North, Sinn Sien is holding well in its favorable mountain fastness.

In Korea and Manchukuo, all three units of the Anti-Japanese Army resistance have reached enemy LOC and are causing significant land and air forces to try to drive them out - so far unsuccessfully.

In Burma, Allied land units are preparing for an integrated campaign with Chinese support, and it is planned to retreat into China rather than into India. In India, troops are moving to Bengal, to screen the frontier. On Ceylon, elements of the Indian Army 17th Division are contemplating a move (via rail) to join a brigade of that division in Burma - to increase the force facing 15th Army.

The attachment is the Allied replay.

The Combat Reports below are those for the Alliess and differ in some details from a similar one for the Axis (which is in the last mailing).
In the South Seas, the buildup has barely begun at Tahiti. There are still only
four engineers and zero engineering vehicles present. But new ships have arrived, six units are now at least partly ashore, and numbers of supplies and fuel are unloading. It may be possible for more damaged ships to sail today to repair at Pearl or on the US West Coast. Farther North, AP Talisay appears to have evaded enemy carrier forces to the Southwest. It will run for Pearl again today. [Originally it was headed to the US West Coast].

At Hawaii, ships with supplies, fuel and units have begun to arrive. Enough aircraft are present to conduct a focused ASW campaign. We will begin transferring long range patrol aircraft and bombers (other than the three units already sent to the South Seas) as soon as supplies at forward bases permit their effective operations. There is a considerable fighter and bomber force at Hawaii - the strongest anywhere for US forces.

In the SW Pacific, Rabaul and Kappa Kappa (next to Port Moresby) fell today. There are no effective Allied units in this area North of Noumea, where all the warships are gathered and where a convoy with troops landed (diverted from the Philippines). Numbers of other forces, and also oil, are en route to Australia from the USA. As well,
As well, the 24th Infantry Division at Pearl Harbor is assigned to a task group to transport it to Sydney.

In the NEI, small ships at Balikpapan are reloading a base force, to move it to Java.
Considerable numbers of troops are arriving at Java from Ceylon and Malaya. The forces at Singapore continue to load for Java, and minor vessels are continuing the illusion of troop movements to Djambe, Sumatra (in fact they only carry supplies) - so sinking of ships on that route do not cost any troops - and so enemy attention continues to not be focused on the real evacuation route. It appears that most of the forces in Malaya will evacuate - sort of a mini-Dunkirk situation. Strong ASW forces are headed to Balikpapan, to escort tankers also en route there - to make one last effort to get oil and fuel out of the place.

In Malaya, North of Johore Bahrue things are grim for the few remaining units. But the defense of Johore Bahru continues to be effective, shielding Singapore from being engaged directly. Enemy air power is not effectively shutting down the transport of troops from Singapore.

In Burma, the point enemy unit has been spotted West of Raeing on a secondary road. Ships are en route to Rangoon to load some of the more than 80,000 tons of resources collected there. Policy continues to be delay in the South, but fight for the North, with a view of retreating into China.

In China, delaying actions, fortification construction, and engagement of enemy LOC continues to be the main focus. Enemy LOC are also being challenged in Manchukuo and Korea. Air forces are recovering from the failed offensive yesterday. The plan continues to be fight hard for the Changsha-Liu Chow Axis,
for the Yellow River Line, and for Sian.
