War in the Pacific

by Grey Hunter

Part 974: Operational Report: 06/08/44

Another British sub makes its presence known.

We hit Sappero hard today.

Carrier Group II moves a little father north and sweeps Iwo-Jima. They take down a large number of enemy planes, but only get one ship hit.

I tell them off, and send them out in the afternoon for better results.

Some of the lighter bombers from Guam make their presence known.

The carriers blast Saipan's airfield.

The Japanese defenders begin to collapse at Tinian.

The carriers make themselves useful, and after tomorrow, I'll think about reactivating the heavy bombers.

We got a few kills, but lost a ship to damage received.
