War in the Pacific

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.
