Part 671: Operational Report: 08/10/43
My sub captains like to live dangerously.
Shanghai gets another pasting today.
79 Squadron is new in from Calcutta.
And it shows.
The carriers hit Hollandia once more thank god I upgraded Rabaul to the point where it can resupply the carriers fully.
Another good day at Truk, so I'm going to try a shock attack tomorrow, to see if that speeds things up.
At Madang, we push, but our men are still tired.
Nothing much happening at the moment, as we're into a rest and planning phase. The troops for the Marianas Islands are getting ready, with men from Pearl and Rabaul getting ready. Another couple of weeks and I should be ready to make the first carrier sweep of the islands.
