War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 584: Operational Report: 13/07/43

Hitting Aitape proves to be effective.

In fact the next raid proves that this is the base that I want to be targetting.

We continue to soften up some other targets of course.

Truk continues to see a steady damaging of facilities and Japanese planes and ships.

Even more bombs are heaped onto the Prome airfield.

Right, tomorrow I'm going to try deliberate attacks on both Sinyang and Kiukiang.

These bases have been surrounded and bombarded for a long time now, and I want to know if this has had any effect.
Please note that Sinyang, which we have been fighting over for over a year, is worth exactly 2 points to us, and 6 to the Japanese.
