Part 771: Operational Report: 16/01/44
The Express takes to the air once more, but cannot score any hits.
I get a little worried that these planes are going to hit my own airfield, but they seem to do a good number on the defenders.
The Japanese here are slowly reduced. They are surrounded now, I am told.
The fighting in Indochina continues.
I start trying to open the Burma road.
We do take Mandalay today however, and I'm going to get my men marching towards Shwebo.
Mandalay is finally ours, and with it, we gain another hundred points on the Japanese.
