    That landing in Sakhalin was a good idea, it will prevent the Russians to invade the Japanese Home Islands (even if I'm not sure that they're really able to).

    The war's going well on every front now but good luck invading the Japanese home islands. At least the German/Russian AI should have little chance of cracking them before you do, I don't know how much your modifications have done about the AI's awfulness at attacking defended beaches.

    Yes, you desperately need that airbase in order to have a chance to make a successful landing.

    @everyone: thanks for the comments!

    With the advance into southern China complete, the US armed forces begin operations to clear out all remaining zones of Japanese resistance. The next target: southeast Asia. 330,000 US soldiers storm the port city of Singapore, easily smashing the enemy garrison and taking the city. Reinforcements quickly arrive, and US troops begin to push up through the Malay peninsula.


    Meanwhile, Japanese holdouts in New Guinea continue to put up intense resistance, repulsing US forces repeatedly with in-depth defenses in the jungles and mountains.


    Brazil begins to seize the Kuril Islands.


    Japanese and Siamese forces in Malaya, with the United States Army to their backs, are now completely cut off from any chance of retreat. In cooperation with units of the Indian Army, US troops begin their final assault, crushing a very large Japanese/Siamese army group in Kra.


    Finally, with no hope of relief or victory, all enemy forces in Malaya surrender. A total of approximately 430,000 Japanese and Siamese troops surrender en masse to US forces, a very major victory.


    Meanwhile, Japan is feeling the full wrath of air bombardment. German heavy strategic bombers, using newly captured airfields in Vladivostok and Manchuria, are pounding away at Japanese industries. Japan's ability to supply its forces and manufacture weapons is being heavily strained by these bombing attacks.



    With the Malay peninsula and Singapore cleared of enemy presence, US troops begin the long awaited invasion of Vietnam, with 330,000 US troops landing all along the coastline and seizing control of many major urban areas, such as Saigon, from Japanese forces.


    US forces now begin to link up in northern Vietnam, as troops from both the north and south force Japanese troops out of Haiphong.


    Japanese and Siamese forces in the region finally organize a counterattack, marching towards the city of Hanoi from the west. Although they succeed in defeating US regular infantry units, their victory is turned into defeat, with the transportation by sea of US armoured and mechanized units to the area, which are able to blunt the Japanese attack and hold the city of Hanoi.


    The landings of US forces in their rear areas have forced a complete collapse of the Japanese/Siamese front lines against allied forces marching from Burma. Siam's army falls apart, and the country's government flees as Allied forces finally break through the frontlines and advance to the east. Bangkok, the Siamese capital, quickly falls to Allied forces from the Union of La Plata, as Indian and Latin American forces break through in all sectors. The war in Southeast Asia is quickly coming to an end.

    Nice update, I'm still impressed at the sheer scale of the war in this AAR.

    Japan has nuclear power.

    Be on the watch there are ways out.
    You canít beat death but you can beat death in life, sometimes.
    And the more often you learn to do it the more light there will be.

    Nuclear Power may equate to nuclear bombs.

    There won't be any Japanese nukes, their reactor was way too small to even produce bombs even before the Germans did everyone a favor by flattening it.

    One more thing, Any ideas for where to put the nukes?

    Tokyo? If the Japanese do not surrender before Kaiser develops them.

    Berlin? Peking? Moscow? Constantinople?

    Not Peking! You'll need a strong China to combat the Russians in the future

    I know this might've been said before but everytime I see this AAR, this comes to my mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sWS-FoXbjVI
    I think it describes a part of this AAR extremely well.

    @Karaiskandar: The game has slowed down quite a lot by now. It should speed up after Japan is gone, but I will probably have to purge some countries militaries to see if i can boost the speed some more. (seriously, some countries have ridiculously large armies. Would you believe that Ireland has about 80 divs? Dont forget Honduras and the United Provinces with about 30 and 70 divs each! Haiti and the Dominican republic also went nuts too.)

    @Midge: Their reactors are too small for bomb production, plus the Germans flattened them, making them useless. Japan doesn't have any delivery systems anyway.

    @Cohacq: That will have to be decided if i need to even use them.

    @everyone else: Thanks for the comments!

    730,000 Japanese and Siamese troops are now trapped in Laos and Cambodia, low on supplies and without any hope of outside relief. Despite the wishes of many Japanese battlefield commanders, the government in Tokyo orders these troops to fight until the bitter end, despite the hopelessness of their situation.


    US forces begin the final push, by converging on the mountainous Khan Kaen region, the last stronghold of the Siamese government. Enemy forces very quickly begin to fall apart, with the only hindrance to the American attack being the time it takes to secure the region.


    Japanese forces launch a large counterattack in an attempt to reach the coast. American tanks and IFV's easily hold their ground and shatter this offensive.


    American nuclear scientists begin development of the ultimate form of nuclear weapons technology, the hydrogen bomb. This weapon could have the destructive potential equivalent to many smaller fission type weapons that have already been tested by American scientists in places like New Mexico or the Nevada desert. If successfully developed, a single Hydrogen Bomb could not only wipe out an entire city, but inflict huge destruction for many miles around it.


    Siam surrenders to Allied Forces. Japan is now alone against nearly the entire planet.


    Siam's surrender is soon followed by the complete surrender of all Japanese forces in South East Asia. Here, 360,000 Japanese troops surrender to US forces, later followed by more Japanese units that had been moving around the jungles towards the same area. In total, some 700,000 Japanese troops end up surrendering to US and Allied forces.


    Next, the last Japanese holdouts in New Guinea are dealt with, when US forces land behind their lines and coordinate a massive attack on the enemy forces with US troops to the east. In total, 130,000 Japanese troops surrender in western New Guinea.


    The Hydrogen bomb project is completed. Now, all the United States needs to produce these weapons are sufficient nuclear reactors to provide the needed enriched uranium, the key component for these weapons of mass destruction.


    With all enemy forces in Asia and the pacific ocean now defeated, the only target left is the Japanese homeland. US ground forces from all over Asia and the pacific islands now begin to mass in Shanghai and Busan, in preparation for the final battle of the pacific war. A total of approximately 1.3 million US ground troops will be devoted to the battle for Japan.


    With the full might of the United States military getting ready to descend upon them, Japan is given one final offer of unconditional surrender. Japan's militaristic leaders however, are in no mood to listen to reason, instead vowing to fight US, Allied, and Mitteleuropan forces to the bitter end. For the final battle, Japan has mobilized a huge army of approximately 1.8 million soldiers and militia, with orders to fight to the death for every inch of territory on the home islands.


    To help overcome the ramparts of Fortress Japan, the United States Air Force begins massing huge numbers of combat aircraft in airbases all around the home islands.



    By December 9th, 1950, the first hydrogen bomb is completed in the Denver nuclear facility, and is ready for use at anytime. Many high level commanders and government officials are torn over whether to use the weapon on Japan, with many having witnessed the destructive potential of these weapons during test detonations in Nevada and New Mexico. However, this weapon's destructive power could finally break the fighting will of the Japanese government and bring about an end to the war. President Truman decides to hold off on using the bomb for now, waiting to see how the conventional situation unfolds once US forces begin their landing operations.
