My raid on Tabs was a lot of luck. I simply felt you were a little over extended there and was I was willing to risk the french squadron.
Weather played a part, I checked the TF each turn as it approached and it was always under TStorms and was never detected.

I paid a price in the overall operation. I'm not sure if/when you will get that intel.

I paid a price in the overall operation. I'm not sure if/when you will get that intel.


Wenchow is in a lot of trouble...
Yes, despite your raid, the mine layer got an effective minefield down before being blasted to bits. That alone cost you two S-boats so the price was worth it. Losing the loaded task force sucked but was just a bump in the road really. We'll see how the battle for Wenchow plays out.

Weather played a part, I checked the TF each turn as it approached and it was always under TStorms and was never detected.
You are a very good player of this game...

Reports of a Terror Campaign against the civilian population of Wenchow are reaching newspapers in London. The Crown has issued a proclamation condemning such activities, described as barbaric. Vice President Wallace said to the NY Times, "...we will provide to the Chinese people, whatever support is needed to cast out these invaders!"
