So as spring turns to summer I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the Southern Victory series. I haven't been able to find its title online, but I've got my bookstore standing by. This year's should be particularly good as the theme rolls over from one centered on conventional warfare to one on counter insurgency. Tinely, no? I look forward to seeing a new generation take over leadership in the series; Dewey in the US as the first President born in the 20th century, and who will take over the late, unlamented Featherstone? Serious discussions only, please!

So, Nutball thinks he's Prince's old backup band? I suppose that's no more delusional than the rest of it.

Nut-Ball! Are you still here? Get a life, man. It sure is funny to think of what's become of this place over the years. These days it may well be the worst message board on the Internet.

We've been trying to figure that out for years. Part of it may be that a more nervous US garrisoned the islands with more than 2 divisions, so a ground landing was less practical even if you did wipe out the enemy fleet. Another part was that the Japanese didn't take out the US fleet or land-based air so their landing craft might take an intolerable beating -- no land invasion 'til you take out US sea and air power. But the thing that got to me was that Japan never seemed to have more than one or two carriers available, when OTL they used 6 at Pearl Harbor and 4 at Midway. Why did they have such a smaller navy? Was it because no Washington Naval limitation treaty meant that they could blow all their money on useless battleships? Was the army sucking up more budget for the land war in Asia and possible moves against European posessions in the far east? We don't know and HT didn't give many hints.

One thing that confuses me is the inconsistency between the Southern Victory novel's Japan and the Japan in "Days of Infamy".
If Japan was capable of capturing Hawaii with its real life forces in Days of Infamy, why couldn't the much stronger Japan of TL-191 do it?
