War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 345: Operational Report: 16/11/42

The Imperial Air Force goes after our China supply line again.

The lone fighter we get into the air at Milne Bay stands no chance against the large number of Japanese fighters.

The Betty's don't get through to the airfield at Darwin today, as we once more come our on top in the air war there.

Without their defences, the Japanese south of Hangchow begin to take heavy casualties from our attacking forces.

To the north, we take the last line of fortifications, and destroy a good number of squads.

We also take the last trenches at Kiangtu, although at some cost.

A quiet day, as the Japanese at Dutch Harbor must have paused to to recover disruption, just as our forces at Guadalcanal have.
