War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 884: Operational Report: 08/05/44

The Japanese strike deeper inland today.

We flatten another small bit of the homelands with our northern bombers.

I order a shock attack at Sorong, and it pays off when we break through two layers of fortifications, time to do that again tomorrow before going back into rest mode I think.

Dropping the altitude of the bombers is having a good effect, we're starting to really pound the small amounts of industry we can reach. We gained another 300 points and are now only 1,000 points behind the Japanese!
I transfer another ten squadrons of Liberators to Pearl Harbour, ready to hit the enemy, this uses up most of my political points.
