A good motivator of men.
For months now, the remnants of Burma's Army, the Army in Vietnam, and even a few that escaped from
Malaya, have been struggling eastwards across the lower southern corner of China.
Bombed daily, bereft of supplies, they have been cut of, lost.
Their Commander would, should have, by any Western Standard, surrendered his Army
He has chosen a different path.
"There is food in Canton. Therefore, we will take it"
And so they have marched east, crossed rivers, moved North of Canton, losing a thousand men a day
to the bombing
Today, the entire Allied Carrier arm bombs them, 400 plus
And yet, .........desperation
The Army attacks Canton, enters the city
There are 2 chinese divisions only defending it.
The first attack fails
But if the next 2 divisions arrive......
(1 to 3, I lose 1300, him 600..........there is a small chance I might actually take it yet)
Turns flowing again, new computer working , game won't load sometimes, but we will manage.
I too wonder how this will finish.........
