War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 588: Operational Report: 17/07/43

I miss the shot, but we nail another tanker off the coast of Japan.

We also see the Shanghai Express over Nagasaki once more, but there is still no hits. Although we down a fighter.

The bombing of Umboi continues, but like Rabaul, there are no damage reports.

The bombing of Truk continues to give results. We're damaging the Japanese fleet at a nice rate.

Another dull day, China is stagnated as we starve out the trapped Japanese forces. The planning for the next phase of the Dutch East Indies campaign continues, and the carriers are heading north once more.
