Part 759: Operational Report: 04/01/44
Something goes horribly wrong at Jaluit.
There is more combat above Akyab.
The Japanese continue to collapse at Mandalay.
Okay gentlemen, I have a word to say to my carrier captains.
While I am impressed with the damage you have caused to Biak, I would like to point out that there are a number of ships nearby, which I would rather you sink.
You see, I have bombers to attack the base, you are out there for something more important.
See! That's more like it, and it seems that the Japanese are either reinforcing the area or abandoning it.
I like how effective my pep talk was.
Shanghai has been quiet for a while, but the Japanese have not forgotten.
The Japanese forces at Kaifeng are coming apart it seems.
Well, that was something of a mixed day, the scores say that overall the change in points is a 230 point loss on the Japanese, which is completely from the troops lost at Jaliut.
I'm sending some carriers out from Pearl to test a theory of mine, but I'm not going to tell you what it is.
