Title: US Pacific Campaign - Order of Battle WW2 AAR - Complete
Post by: airboy on January 12, 2019, 06:54:28 PM
I've lost AARs over the years with websites going dark and other problems.

I've decided to put my AARs on my game blog and link to them.

This AAR is the US Pacific Campaign from Order of Battle WW2.  This campaign starts with Pearl Harbor.  You then have two additional beat-downs in the Phillipines.  Then you start with the US Navy in action.

The US Pacific Campaign is far different from most simulations of WW2.  You have a good ground simulation and a good simulation of carrier combat.  Some scenarios are all taking place on the ground and the air.  Others are completely naval actions with the inclusion of the carrier flight wings.

This AAR is played on the Lietenant level.  I have played this campaign to its conclusion at least 4 times before starting this AAR.  I'm also writing a detailed strategy guide.

Ah, those new white trace-marks are working well! How are you doing them?

Wait, those are just the plots from the game before you execute, aren't they?  ::) Good use of them if so!  :bd:

You got it right.  The white marks are the plot trace before moving.  I just took the screenshot then to illustrate what I was doing.

The brave deaths of the Gunny and “Lt. Idiot” in the previous holding action served the greater good. McArthur bestirred himself to speak with all inexperienced Lieutenants and their Gunnys before the battle started. McArthur ordered the Lieutenants to stay behind the river lines and shoot up Japs attempting to cross. He then ordered the Gunnys to shoot in the leg any Lt failing to follow orders and counter-attacked North of any river line. The assembled Gunny’s gave a loud “Yes Sir General McArthur!” After McArthur left the Gunny’s started bragging about their marksmanship badges and taking bets on who would bag the first Lt of the upcoming battle.

Lt. Newbie told Lt. Wet Behind the Ears that the only time he had seen his Gunny happier was when the Gunny found a fifth of unopened Scotch and shared it with a “fun time girl.”

Any ignorant fools who are not reading Airboy's AAR, are missing this.  :coolsmiley: :smitten:

I'm going to take a break from this AAR for a bit.  The last Bataan post made me depressed and brought tears to my eyes.  I had not thought about a couple of WW2 vets I knew growing up in several years - including a Wake Island vet.   :-[

I'm going to write up my visit to the Kansas City Toy Museum, my review of Pillars of Eternity 2, etc..... for a couple of days to let my sadness abate.


PS - Jason, don't blame yourself for your earlier comments.  They served a good purpose to remind all of us of the sacrifices made by allied troops in the Pacific during 1941-1942 to slow the Jap advance.   :notworthy:

My grand-uncle John Reed didn't want to talk about his career as a pilot for a B-17 over Europe either. We only ever got a few things out of him. The Me-262 jets were essentially omnipotent against bomber flights, and scared him more than anything else: their only weakness was that they only had enough fuel for one or two passes. He was in the camp of, had Hitler deployed them as interceptors instead of insisting they be used as strike bombers, the western front might have gone quite differently.

First part of the Coral Sea scenario is up.
https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/02/21/coral-sea-us-campaign-order-of-battle-ww2-scenario-5/

This is just a pain to illustrate.  The map is huge.  Your forces are split up and cannot support each other.  When you spot something without a positive ID, it does not show up on the main situation map.  Last, the strategy is complex due to the difficult victory conditions.

This one is going to be slow to post.  The writeup is very hard to do.  I'm also going to ConOoga Thursday-Sunday and then MACE West Thursday-Monday the following week.

This is probably the single hardest AAR scenario to write up I've ever attempted.

I took 130+ screen shots just to remind me of what happened when I had the time to write it up.  This battle was so complicated I'll probably use close to 50 screenshots.

This update takes us up to turn 13.  The Jap troop ships have finally been spotted and it will be hard to sink them.

This is a very long (50 turn) scenario.  The first part of Guadalcanal discusses my strategy and how the different objectives are possible at different points in the 50 turn scenario.  I've played this scenario at least 8 times and my strategy works well - at least at this difficulty level.

Just wanted to swing by and say that I've enjoyed reading through your AARs. You do a great job of balancing text and pictures, having just enough of each without overdoing it one way or the other. That's something I personally struggle with in AARs. Its always a nice added bonus to see someone play who knows what they're doing too! Both in regards to game mechanics as well as period appropriate tactics. I'm also a sucker for naval combat on this scale. Great stuff, and congrats on your win at Guadalcanal!

Part 1 of Scenario 11: Okinawa

Below is a link to my strategy and the results of the first three turns.  I plan to finish this scenario and the invasion of Japan (the last scenario in this campaign) before the end of the year.

https://averysgameblog.wordpress.com/2019/10/15/order-of-battle-ww2-us-navy-campaign-scenario-11-okinawa/


I did not update the game blog for three months for all sorts of reasons.  This is a hobby and not a job.  My wife and I went on a two week transatlantic cruise.  But most importantly my wife suddenly went 100% deaf in one ear and had vertigo for several days.  The hearing loss is permanent and nothing can be done.  This is a mystery to medical science. 

Because of my extensive training and knowledge of statistics including medical statistics, I read the summary literature on her problem.  She got the right treatment very fast.  But this problem is one of the hardest to set up a medical study for that I've ever seen - a thought shared by three different physicians including two specialists. 

She will never be able to tell the direction of sound again.  She has great difficulty understanding people talking if there is much background noise.  Our days of going to concerts is over and she needs to avoid anything that can damage her good ear so she will not be pulling clays for me shooting shotguns any longer.

Just one of those things that happens as people get older and there are a lot of things that could be worse.

Loved your AAR Avery and I too am so sorry to learn of your wife's diagnosis. You certainly couldn't have gotten on it any earlier. Maybe somehow Medical Science can learn from her loss and advance the fight to prevent/cure this in the future. My own wife suffers from a buzzing sound in one ear which began after she dove into our pool to impress the grandkids. She felt something in her inner ear and when she came back up, it's been there ever since. Doctors can't do anything to fix it so she suffers. Like you say, part of getting old I guess. I told her it was God's way of sparing her from having to listening me all the time.
