I may have found a chink in Francois armor. The air war is fickle in AE. There the measures and counter measures. I would
not have conducted that landing without a lot more recon and escort. However in his defense the Dutch hardly hit anything
and I would be pretty sure he did not expect the USN to be there with naval air.

That was a nice set of ambushes!

These bases are frequently taken by Japan just to make moving on the DEI more difficult/time consuming and provide more warning of such. Has he taken Darwin yet?

Thank you sir. After the initial "distress" at seeing the landings particularly at Groote Eylandt I
found myself a bit panicked. After doing some easy calculations and remembering this is not War in the East
A possible landing at Normantown even in conjunction with a landing on the NE coast is less "scary".
Darwin in under recon but still in Allied hands. It is weakly defended. The line would form in the
interior should the need arise. Alice Springs is building an airbase for USAF squadrons to punish any
move south from Darwin and delay any advance which could split Oz in two. I am still only guessing at his
strategic intentions.

If his LCUs move north from Darwin without the assistance of ships or aircraft, they are going to get very, very, wet!

new day: DESRON21-2 ordered to a spot to recon north of Luganville. DESRON21-1 in ambush after upgrades. The last few days I
have been successfully hitting the IJA in central Burma for no losses. I want to intensify the campaign there now. Unfortunately most
convoys are still sans escort even larger "class A" types. I do not want to lose destroyers without significant gain. The last surface
group from the DEI is ordered south. Singapore is a rusty hinge. Note to self, do not allow brigades to be cut off in the initial week.

A quiet day. There is a tanker hit off Hawaii, she should make it. All the other convoys move unmolested.

In a typical TWIT HQ move I send Francois my AAR day. I still have to move my files from a
PC to my MAC to post to avoid my multiple post syndrome. Fortunately I don't reveal a ton.

I really like it too.

Feedback: the fonts with shadow outlines or whatever they are called (see first post on this page for an example) are rally difficult for me to read. Not sure if easy for others.

Thank you Dave. George, I thought i was the only one who couldn't read this... OK point taken. I shall leave the type face alone, although I will
continue to screw with some of the art. The thought is was ever shall be to use maps for context ( I agree it would help if you could read it with-
out sunglasses.) prose ie. comments and reports for details and general situational stuff, and pictures for my emotional stamp on the thing. One
day I will find the right mix. I think I will use black and white for land war maps for now, un "cartooned", and work on a gentle background for naval
actions (my favorites when I win them ). Please continue to let me know when I get it right or go off the deep end. That said, today is quiet with
the exception of the withering garrison at Singapore. Bummed I couldn't pull off a coordinated raid on Magwe, but truth is, it's rare for this period
in time. I spent most of the turn wondering what to do next at sea. Enterprise and Lexington have some time before upgrades and I think they are to
potent to reamin idle for long. Saratoga and York are at sea after some brief repair and upgrades. Fortunately my convoys have been unmolested
to this point and it looks like the current sea lane was a good choice.

edit: The blocking force is still in place, the retreating elements to the west of Mandalay were routed.
