"...He tasks me, and I shall have him. I'll chase him round the Moons of Nibia and round the Antares Maelstrom and round Perdition's flames before I give him up!:

The illustrious Mogami returns, "once more, ...play our dangerous game, a game of chess against our old adversary - The American Navy."

Yes, I like obscure movie quotes. I also like to torment him with seemingly suicidal tactics, that, while not game-changing, are quite amusing -to me.

"Yesterday, December 7, 1941—a date which will live in infamy—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of the Empire of Japan.

The United States was at peace with that Nation and, at the solicitation of Japan, was still in conversation with its Government and its Emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific. Indeed, one hour after Japanese air squadrons had commenced bombing in the American Island of Oahu, the Japanese Ambassador to the United States and his colleague delivered to our Secretary of State a formal reply to a recent American message. And while this reply stated that it seemed useless to continue the existing diplomatic negotiations, it contained no threat or hint of war or of armed attack...


And so it begins...

The attack on Pearl Harbor was a smashing success. Fires, flooding, listing, settling, and sorrow. The Age of Innocence is ended.



"The attack yesterday on the Hawaiian Islands has caused severe damage to American naval and military forces. I regret to tell you that very many American lives have been lost. In addition American ships have been reported torpedoed on the high seas between San Francisco and Honolulu.

Yesterday the Japanese Government also launched an attack against Malaya.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Hong Kong.
Last night Japanese forces attacked Guam.
Last night Japanese forces attacked the Philippine Islands.
Last night the Japanese attacked Wake Island. And this morning the Japanese attacked Midway Island...

Invasions have begun. Landings on the Maylay Penninsula, Southwestern China, and Central Pacific at Makin. Forces spotted moving toward the Philippines, Wake Is., and New Guinea.

Major British and Dutch naval units have been evacuated to be employed in appropriate strong attrition tactics.

Pearl Harbor with Ben Affleck and Josh Hartnett and Kate Beckinsale.

Quite possibly the greatest war movie ever.

Tora, Tora, Tora puts that movie to shame and consider it was filmed before CGI. Pearl Harbor goes from Eagle Squadron to PH to the Doolittle Raid, just a confusing mess. they had to reread the Doolittle lines because they originally were going to portray Doolittle as a barely literate rub until they were told he had a masters degree. PH is awful history, horrible acting and terrible script, they only thing worth watching was the PH attack and that still pales in compared to the aforementioned classic.

Kate Beckinsale is the only redeeming quality of The Film Which Shall Not Be Named.

Tora,Tora,Tora remains one of the greatest war films of all time.

And now, back to our story...

In the race to the Marshall Islands, RAdm Sherman's TF11 gets there first:

Morning Air attack on TF near Kwajalein Island, Moderate rain

9 SBD-3 Dauntless escorted by 11 F2A-3 Buffalo attacking

xAK Tenyo Maru, Bomb hits 2, heavy fires, heavy damage
CM Tokiwa, Bomb hits 2, heavy fires

Heavy smoke from fires obscuring xAK Tenyo Maru

Kate Beckinsale was rumored to be marooned on Epjā-dik in the Marshalls, but a US Marine raider force from USS Nautilus finds nothing but "pork chops and applesauce..." and resumes area patrol.

The sub ring around Pearl Harbor continues.
Mogami's cruiser force catches several xAK/xAKL fleeing Legaspi in southeastern Luzon, sinking all of them.
Guam falls.

USS LEXINGTON continues to rape and pillage Japanese shipping, sinking or damaging nearly another dozen transports and auxiliaries.

There's a deep philosophical meaning there.

Hong Kong is now being subject to daily attacks. It won't be long before they succumb.
Landings continue off Lingayen and Kota Bharu (Maylaya).
China is being slowly overrun, but that was to be expected.

USS ENTERPRISE catches up to LEXINGTON, and together, they continue putting the wood to all shipping east of Ponape, after which they head to Ocean Island. Both carriers have managed to dodge attacks by Nells.

MOGAMI: "At least 40 Nells attacked Enterprise at a range of one hex. 0 hits. However it is these kind of escapes that always lead to future disaster. The fur wears off that rabbits foot eventually. And all for a few Ak."

DADMAN: "Yes. Yes it does."

Mogami's air forces continue to harry the hapless Chinese on the mainland and pummel the city of Manila.

Subs are still a well-spotted but indecent threat around Hawaii.

Kido Butai is spotted about 700nm west of Johnston Is., headed west, possibly in pursuit of my vandals, while they (LEXINGTON and ENTERPRISE) are sunning themselves at Ocean Is., 240nm WSW of Tarawa.

SARATOGA is stationed at Christmas Island, wait for the tanker train she is to escort to Australia.

Lady Lex and Big E are 900nm SW of Kido Butai. PBY's from Midway had been tracking it, then a squadron out of Johnston Is.

900 NM is not far enough if you linger there he can flank speed close the gap in one day and conduct a strike if he knows or strongly suggests you are there. He is inside his own wheelhouse now and can get fuel from the Marshalls and Truk while your nearest fill up is the East coats of Australia or Auckland. Since he was traveling with tankers his bunkers may be near fuel and ready to chase you knowing you might be half full and needing to not go flank speed to conserve fuel.
