War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 1132: Operational Report: 11/01/45

The Bombers walk along their target – no rest for the retreating Japanese!

We continue the support – I want this airbase! Although I am sending troops and support to another base further up, just to hedge my bets.

We continue the attacks, and I don't know how much longer the Japanese can take losses like this.

The B-29's hit their new target.

Of course, Meabashi still gets some attention, but I'm going to do another quick rest to repair the damaged planes.

The Japanese attack a supply convoy, but cannot make it through to the ships.

Their afternoon attack is larger, and does get a number of hits on the CVE's.

Then they hit us with the bombers, it gets messy. Wave after wave follows this and many ships sink.

We retake Kiangtu. Again.

Well, Bugger.
