War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 1232: Operational Report: 21/04/45

Owch, that's not a good start to the day.

This makes up for it somewhat, but not as much as I would like.

The bombers start rocking over Hakodate again.

Soon the city is burning fearsomely.

We hit ships in Sapporo harbour, trying to prevent the incoming supplies.

The bombers are not quite done, and the afternoon sees us get to 66,000 fires!

The Japanese lose another unit trying to slow our advance down.

We gun down a wave of enemy planes.

Unfortunately the afternoon raid slips through.

We hit a troopship in Manila.

Things are going horribly wrong for the Japanese at Lucena.

I'm landing more troops at Saemarang. The Japanese attack, and of course hit the CVE.

The landings go our way slightly, but look at the number of disabled none combat squads – this battle may be over quickly now some better combat troops have boots on the ground.

Things are hotting up in other areas now after a few weeks on Japanocentric war. 19,000 fires still burn in Hakodate, so we may be able to edge towards a firestorm.
