SUBJECT: State of the War.

Mr. President,

Enclosed is summary of the State of the War in the Pacific Theater of Operations.

WESTERN COMMAND

West Coast bases continue to act as supply and reinforcement points for the war effort. Infrastructure build-up continues and no reports of enemy activity thus far.

CANADIAN COMMAND

Canadian Forces are building at their Pacific Bases, but Canadian units have not yet been committed to the arena as there is still significant political pressure for the Canucks to send more units to Europe.

NORTHERN COMMAND

No enemy activity has been detected in the area thus far. Building and reinforcement of the new base on Kiska Island continues.

FAR EAST COMMAND

All Allied naval forces were withdrawn from the area at the outset of hostilities. Many naval units have been reassigned to the SOUTHWEST PACIFIC COMMAND in preparation for our forthcoming counter-offensive. United States and Phillipino ground forces continue to hold Manila, Clark Airbase, and the fortress of Corrigedor. Supplies are critical as our attempted resupply mission fell pray to enemy airforces in the South China Sea and was destroyed. These brave defenders have fought with great skill and honor, but our assessment is that they will not be able to remain effective through the end of the month due to the lack of supplies. Orders are being crafted to break up the remaining units into Guerrilla cells to harass the enemy until we return.

ABDE COMMAND

The Islands of Borneo and Sulawesi are now in possession of IJA forces. Landings at Kudang and Amboine have also given the enemy forward bases for continued advanced into the Dutch East Indies and New Guinea. A Japanese carrier battlegroup ranges unmolested in the Java Sea, but Java and Sumatra continue to hold. Dutch naval forces have been utterly destroyed and the few reamining units have been relocated to Singapore. These Dutch forces, in conjunction with Commonwealth and United States Naval Forces, fought with great bravery and were able, through hit and run tactics, to inflict great injury upon the overwhelming IJN invasion forces prior to there destruction.

SOUTH PACIFIC AND SOUTHWEST PACIFIC COMMANDS

Forward bases in Noumea and Suva continue to expand as jumping off points for our couter-offensive. Recon and ASW flights continue and enemy activity has been sparce.

AUSTRALIA COMMAND

Air raids at Darwin continue almost daily with minimal damage. Port Moresby continues to be reinforced and expanded. The Japanese drive down the Solomons seems to have stalled in the Shortlands when our carrier raid on Rabaul sunk many fully loaded transports. The Lexington took a bomb hit which will put her our of action for a month or so, but the raids were very effective.

CENTAL PACIFIC COMMAND

Intelligence reports have confirmed that the submarine attack on the Akagi by the USS Nautilus eventually caused the carrier to be lost enroute to port. It also reports that those lost successfully defending Wake Island did not die in vain, build up at the base continues and an advanced submarine base should be operational in a month or two. The seaplane base on Baker Island is providing excellent reconnaisance of the Gilbert Islands. The carrier raid on Kwaljein damaged or sank many vessels but the USS Enterprise suffered a torpedo hit. This fine ship is almost completely repaired at Pearl Harbor. All US Battleships damaged during the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor are available for operations although more system repairs are required for them to be totally effective. The USS Colorado will still require several more months of repairs in San Francisco until she can head back out.

CHINA COMMAND

The Chinese attempt to relieve the seige of Hong Kong failed when they were unable to seize Canton and Hong Kong fell to IJA forces on January 28th. Chinese forces are currently not conducting any offensive operations and Japanese movement has been limited.

SOUTHEAST ASIA

Commonwealth Forces quickly concentrated in Rangoon and Singapore at the opening of hostilities. The initial attack on Rangoon was thrown back by the timely arrival of Indian forces and Commonwealth Forces were able to mount a counter-attack in the region. Currently, Burma, Siam, and most of Malaysia have been retaken. The defenders of Singapore have held out well and it now appears that the destruction of the IJA forces besieging the fortress is near-at-hand. Additional Commonweath Forces are threatening Phnom Penh and the removal of the Japanese from Indochina seems inevitable in the short term. Aircraft from Singapore have also reported the sinking of two Japanese Battleships, the Haruna and Kongo, as well the the destruction of the light carriers Zuiho and Shoho. The concentrated airforces at Singapore have also sunk in excess of one hunded Japanese transports and other escort vessels.

OVERVIEW

I do not see any way we will be able to relieve the Phillipines prior to there supplies running out. Although a tragedy, these defenders have bought us singificant time and bogged down over 100,000 Japanese troops that could have been used elsewhere during this trying time. Singapore should be relieved in a matter of weeks and these units currently defending the fortress available for offensive operations in short order. Current United States buildup of forces will allow us to begin limited offensive operations within two to four months.

Respectfully submitted,

Gen. Chili614

Mr. President,

Enclosed is summary of the State of the War in the Pacific Theater of Operations.

WESTERN COMMAND

West Coast bases continue to act as supply and reinforcement points for the war effort. Infrastructure build-up continues and no reports of enemy activity thus far. A lack of sufficient troop transport capability has hampered our efforts to move men out of Continental bases in a timely fashion. We are utilizing cargo transports in a limited capacity, but this method is inefficient and slow.

CANADIAN COMMAND

Canadian naval forces have been released to the Northern Command for defensive operations but all Canadian ground and air units remained staged on their West Coast.

NORTHERN COMMAND

No enemy activity has been detected in the area thus far. The Kiska Island base is continuing expansion and a B-17 bomber group is now protecting our Northern flank from this locale.

FAR EAST COMMAND

I am sorry to report that all organized resistance in the Phillipines ended on 15 MAY 1942. The defenders of the island put up a spirited fight, but were overwhelmed due to lack of supplies. Guerilla operations will be up and running soon and the scattered survivors should be able to provide us with ample intelligence until we can return in force. I assure you Mr. President that these men will be avenged,

ABDE COMMAND

Allied forces have discontinued offensive operations in this area although air units in Java and Sumatra continue to interdict IJN transport missions in the area. Japanese offensive efforts have also stalled in the arena as landings on both Java and Sumatra have been repelled.

SOUTH PACIFIC AND SOUTHWEST PACIFIC COMMANDS

Bases at Lunga and Tulagi have been established as a jumping-off point for the retaking of Rabaul and other Solomon chain bases. The forthcoming counter-offensive should meet up with units currently staging in Port Morseby and clear the Northern coast of New Guinea of the Japanese presence.

AUSTRALIA COMMAND

Port Moresby continues to expand and reinforce for a New Guinea offensive.

CENTAL PACIFIC COMMAND

The submarine base on Wake should be operational within two weeks thanks to the efforts of newly-arrived enginer units. Naval units are currently repairing/rearming in Pearl Harbor, but offensive operations had to be delayed for a needed upgrade or weaponry for many of our destroyers.

CHINA COMMAND

There have been no offensive operations undertaken by IJA forces in this arena for the past month. Chinese forced captured Tadun-Nur in Northern China but their operations have also been very limited.

SOUTHEAST ASIA

Singapore remains under siege as the Japanese resistance has proven stiff. Nevertheless, a lack of supplied and attrition from daily air, ground, and naval bombardment attacks have caused the large Japanese force to cease all attacks. Mop-up operation continue. The Commonwealth offensive in Indochina has temporarily stalled due to exhaustion of the troops. Units are currently reforming for a push towards Saigon as the offensive was unable to crack the defences at Bien Hoa in their current state. A large force is forming at Pisanuloke in Siam to eventually push towards Hanoi.

OVERVIEW

Japanese offensive operations have stalled on all fronts. Carrier raids from Pearl Harbor will continue on the Eastern-most bases as soon as the destroyer upgrade program is complete. Fresh forces from India are enroute to Rangoon to put some new blood into the Indochina offensive. A push on Rabaul should be possible sometime before the end of the year.

Respectfully submitted,

Gen. Chili614

SUBJECT: State of the War.

Mr. President,

Enclosed is summary of the State of the War in the Pacific Theater of Operations.

WESTERN COMMAND

No enemy activity observed. Supplies, equipment, and personnel continue to arrive for forward deployment.

CANADIAN COMMAND

Canadian Forces are building at their Pacific Bases, and all assigned aircraft have been upgraded but have not been authorized for release to conduct offensive operations.

NORTHERN COMMAND

The forward base on Kiska Island has completed expansion. No enemy activity or Aliied offensive operations underway.

FAR EAST COMMAND

No Aliied offensive operations underway.

ABDE COMMAND

Japanese offensive operations have stopped in this area. Commonwealth and remaining Dutch naval forces have been successfully interdicting Japanese supply/resource convoys in the area along with Allied aircraft. Japanese long-range aircraft appear to have been deployed to other theatres.

SOUTH PACIFIC AND SOUTHWEST PACIFIC COMMANDS

Forward bases of operation have been established at Lunga and Tulagi and Marine Raiders have successfully retaken all captured based in the Solomon chain except the Shortland Islands. Allied ground forces, spearheaded by the USMC 2nd Division have taken Gasmata and are driving towards Rabaul. The airfield and port facilities at Rabaul have been rendered useless by Allied air attacks based from Port Morseby.

AUSTRALIA COMMAND

Japanese offensive operations have ceased in this area. ASW patrols continue to prosecute Japanese submarine operations in the area.

CENTRAL PACIFIC COMMAND

Wake Island is now operational as a forward submarine base, significantly increasing the patrol times of our submarine force off of the Japanese Home Islands. Japanese offensive operations have ceased and units at Pearl Harbor are preparing for an invasion of the Gilbert Islands in the near future.

SOUTHEAST ASIA

The siege of Singapore ended on 15 July 42 with the complete destruction of the Japanese 25th Army. Commonwealth forces have capture all of Indochina save Hanoi and units are currently marching towards this objective with minimal resistance. Commonwealth bombers based in Saigon engaged a Japanese Carrier Task Force in the Gulf of Tonkin and sank two fleet carriers and a light carrier. Two Japanese battleships were also severely damaged and may have also been sunk.

OVERVIEW

Australian troops are staging in Singapore to retake Borneo and Sulawest as soon as transports are made available. Commonwealth forces will be made available for offensive operations in China as soon as Hanoi and the rest of Indochina is mopped-up. Rabaul should fall within a month. An invasion of the Phillipines should be possible by the end of 1943. Japanese resources have been severely restricted and should have a significant impact on their industrial output.

Respectfully submitted,

Gen. Chili614

Mr. President,

Enclosed is summary of the State of the War in the Pacific Theater of Operations.

WESTERN COMMAND

No enemy activity observed. Supplies, equipment, and personnel continue to arrive for forward deployment.

CANADIAN COMMAND


Canadian Forces are building at their Pacific Bases, and all assigned aircraft have been upgraded but have not been authorized for release to conduct offensive operations.

NORTHERN COMMAND

The forward base on Kiska Island has completed expansion. No enemy activity or Allied offensive operations underway.

FAR EAST COMMAND

Dissolved.

ABDE COMMAND

Commonwealth Forces have retaken Melang and Brunei and are pushing south in an attempt to retake Borneo. Japanese transport efforts have been severly hampered by Dutch, ANZAC, and limited US naval forces based in Sorijaba. LBA transferred from the South Pacific Command have also caused great damage.

SOUTH PACIFIC AND SOUTHWEST PACIFIC COMMANDS

Rabaul and the entire New Guinea are now back in Allied hands. B-17 attacks from Rabaul along with occassional carrier raids on Truk lagoon have rendered the base useless. US Army forces are staging on Baker Island for an invasion of the Gilbert Islands as soon as sufficient transport arrives in the theater. Bases at Lae and Wewak are building as forward operating points for the retaking of DEI and the Phillipines. The Superbattleship Yamato was struck by over 100 bombs while in harbor in Truk and is believed severly damaged.

AUSTRALIA COMMAND

Japanese offensive operations have ceased in this area. ASW patrols continue to prosecute Japanese submarine operations in the area and the recent arrival of subchasers has resulted in significant Japanese submarine losses..

CENTRAL PACIFIC COMMAND

Wake Island is now operational as a forward submarine base, significantly increasing the patrol times of our submarine force off of the Japanese Home Islands. Japanese offensive operations have ceased and units at Pearl Harbor are preparing for an invasion of the Gilbert Islands in the near future.

SOUTHEAST ASIA

LBA units sunk another Japanese Fleet Carrier and severly damaged two others. Commonwealth forces have captured all of Indochina and all Japanese units in the area have been destroyed. Commonweath and Chinese ground forces have laid siege to Canton and hope to take the city, the gateway to Hong Kong, within a few weeks. Commonwealth forces will then be released for invasions of Taan and Formosa Islands.

OVERVIEW

Intelligence reports indicate that the IJN has no undamaged capital ships at this time and perhaps as few as 3 light carriers available for use. Japanese resources have been either captured or cut off by LBA. Offensive operations in the Central Pacific are currently stalled due to an acute lack of transports. This situation should be fixed as soon as the amphibious assault ships begin arriving at the end of the month.

Respectfully submitted,

Gen. Chili614
