BBMike & RockyMountainNavy (aka, “Mike” and “Ian”) hold court on the oft-neglected Pacific Theater of Operations in World War II, including a wide-ranging set of topics from strategic ship-building plans to the logistics tail through the C-B-I, and from Russian intervention in Manchuria to the Cactus Air Force of the Philippines. There’s a lot of ground to cover here, and it includes (obviously!) amphibious operations, high-level campaigns, naval yahtzee, and a couple of “what if” questions.
Don’t forget, you can always catch up with past episodes on the “podcast” tab of our site.
We talk about Star Fleet Battles (no, really!), and Empire of the Sun, along with Victory in the Pacific, Cataclysm, The Pacific War: Pearl Harbor to the Philippines, War Plan Orange, and Last Hundred Yards, to go along with Battlewagon, the Wings series, Cactus Air Force, and the Second World War At Sea series, and others. We weren’t sure we’d have enough to talk about all the way through an entire hour, and really we probably need 2 more shows, at least.
There’s so much to cover, from Australia to Alaska, and from India to Hawaii, that it’s almost impossible to talk about it all in one show, but that didn’t stop us from trying!
