T27, Celebes
Karl has started clearing out the Celebes islands and has landed on Mondano and all I have to defend there are partisans and Phil. Army units with a proficiency in the 20's. He will own all those islands shortly.

T28, Singapore
Singapore fell finally and Karl has started making landings on Sumatra. I'm going to have to displace all my aircraft to somewhere else.

T32, Rangoon
Karl floated some more troops into the Rangoon area and forced my defenders to retreat from one more hex there. I'm thinking I'd best redeploy all my guys along the river.

T32, Wake Island
I captured Midway after a couple of turns of bombardment with all the ships I have and an assault on the Jap defenders by a division of Marines. Now I'm looking at Wake and it's a fortress from what I can tell. Karl has a division of crack troops and two engineer units and a brigade of SNLF troops with two bomber units and a fighter unit there. It's not going to be a pushover. And if that weren't bad enough he's also got a SCTF stationed there that contains at least one carrier. I lost one CV at Midway so now I'm down to just 5: Lexington, Yorktown, Enterprise, Hermes, and Formidable. I'll need them all in one group to approach Wake.

Karl has captured another hex of Rangoon so I thought I ought to rearrange my troopers to better defend the path northward.

T36, Wake
I thought I'd drive all my ships up to Kwajalene and bombard it to see if there was any chance at all of invading and taking it by storm. Karl flew a bunch of planes to the nearby islands and attacked me with them and I lost a CV ( Yorktown ) and got some damage on another CV and a BB and a DD was sunk. I guess I tried too soon and I need to retreat and try it again when I have more of a CAP to protect my ships better. I'm going to take a look at the expected reinforcements to see when I can expect some more ships.

Naval Reinforcements in the future
I counted 17 CV types coming in future turns so there's a chance that I can try to invade again around T60 or so.

The Fleet As It Is Now
Only 4 carriers left in the fleet. I guess I'd best hunker down and wait for more ships.

T39, Rangoon
Using their ships for support the Japs have been slowly pushing the Allied forces northward and I've flown in some anti-ship aircraft and I've been picking off a ship here and a ship there and several have been sunk over the last five turns or so. So I'm optimistic that I can delay the Japs for a long time in this AO. That doesn't rule out the possibility of Karl invading directly at Calcutta and I wouldn't be surprised if he does that. Karl has cleared out the island of Sumatra and now Java is vulnerable. Also, Ceylon is open to invasion. I'm thinking of moving the Commonwealth ships back to the SW India area just for insurance. Or at least a couple of anti-ship aircraft. And a fighter or two. The AVG got dissolved back in July ( it's August 30, 1942 now ) and Allied seaborne forces, Marines, have been delivered to the New Ireland island chain and are ready for invasion somewhere. The problem is that I don't have enough CV's to protect my ships yet. I figure I need another two CV groups to have enough airborne Wildcats to prevent my ships from getting hit. I'll be getting some long-range P-38's in T41 and their range is 48 which may be far enough to base them on some nearby islands to help CAP the ships invading somewhere. That's only a couple of turns from now. I'll have to try that.

T41, Miri
Following a complicated path Karl has moved some troops to Borneo and has landed at Miri despite being intercepted at least a dozen times. Now I need to vacate the AO and retreat to Java or maybe southern Borneo. I still own Balikpapan and it's got a port and an airfield so I'll defend that with the guys that need to move out of Miri.

T42, Rangoon
I thought I'd drive my ships up to Rangoon and engage the Jap ships. I sank a BB and two CL's and several DD's. There's more ships yet to engage but I burned my turn and it ended early.

T43, Front Lines
All my ships are just offshore at Rangoon after raiding the Jap ships that were assisting the Jap troops push northward. Those ships are gone now and Karl has flown every plane he owns to the Bangkok / Rangoon area ready to intercept my ships as they reposition to Ceylon. I can expect to lose some ships just to get them out of range of Karl's LBA. I've decided that I am already well on my way getting closer to Tokyo by advancing through the Celebes, thence to Mandano, thence to Manila, thence to Formosa, and then leap to the smaller Japanese islands just south of the main island. I've already dispatched most of the Jap ships so I can well imagine that this avenue of advance is doable.

T47, Mindanao
I made some landings on Mindano with the intent to clear out the entire island of Japs and I expect it will take a couple of months. I lost a BB and several DD's moving the troops to where they are now. Lots of Jap Sea Int going on. I flew in a lot of fighters but they didn't always help out a lot. This is going to be a long war.

I sailed in some more troops and I'm using the ships I have left to bombard the Jap airfields and ports. As well as the Jap troops that I can reach.

So true. I'm pretty sure that in late 42 the Allies were very much still on the run in the pacific.

The US won the battle of Midway in early June1942. They began their push up the Solomon islands in August and began pushing the Japanese back in New Guinea by the end of September.

Of course that is a long way from pushing back through the Philippines.

T51, Mindanao
I've been pounding Karl's airfields the past several turns to reduce the threat from the air. I've been losing DD's moving my ships to different positions, about 4 of them so far this turn. But I need to get rid of the enemy aircraft to allow my land forces to work without interruption(s). But I've been making progress moving north and have gained two airfields and a port. So far so good.

T52, Hong Kong
This is the situation on mainland China and it has been since about T20. Neither of us, it seems, is able to make any headway on the other. I considered moving my ships just offshore to help out but the enormous amount of Jap LBA surrounding that area precludes the execution of that mission. Karl has stocked up the Phillippines with all kinds of aircraft so I'd best not venture so close to that just yet. My ships have been bombarding each turn for about five turns now and they are starting to turn yellow and need rest and most of the ships have some damage to a greater or lesser degree. It might not hurt to move the ships to Java and rest them and let them refit.

T68, Northeast China
The Japs have made a breakthrough and Karl has railed a LOT of Jap troops to this hole in my lines and no doubt intends to pour a lot of troops through that hole and devestate my forces. I have no answer to this incursion and I fear that he will soon own all of China.

T77, Samar
I've cleared the island of Mindanao and I found an open port on Samar and I moved some units into it and flew some fighters up there for a CAP. I lost about 4 DD's, got some damage on the carrier Essex, and lost a handful of fighters gaining that port. I've got to capture the smaller islands just south of the PI so that I can base some aircraft there to support operations in the PI. Also, I'd like to clear out Brunei in Borneo just to rid myself of a Jap port and airfield so close to my path of advance. A glance at the air losses meter says that the air war has heated up quite a bit lately. Which is a good thing. I can build aircraft faster than he can and I've just received my first squadron of Hellcats on a new carrier at Pearl so things are looking up. There's 177 turns left in the game.
