    I have the book written by the Captian of the Archer-Fish that sank Shinano.

    GREAT book!

    Speaking as an interested reader, what’s the name of the book / author?



  • Shinano!  The Sinking of Japan’s Secret Supership By Captain Joseph F. Enright USN, with James Ryan.

    Published by St. Martin’s Press, copyright 1987.

    I do not ahve an ISBN number.  The copy I have is from the Military Book Club.

    Taking Egypt is by no means “Obvious” to someone new to the game.  It took me several games before I realized that taking egypt and closing off the Suez is a must for Germany in round1.  That Indian fleet moving into the Med is a real pain in the ass.


  • 2007 AAR League

    Yeah I only started taking Egypt after I started on these forums which was about 5-10 games after I started playing.
    And it helped my game a lot 😄



  • Same, I was using that transport for an attack on Caucasus on G1.  This was only viable beacuse the Russian player was new also and didnt think to destroy some of those Ukrainian units.



  • Yeah I figured that would be standard procedure unless I was missing something big
    (that secret german fleet off madigascar or what have you)
    really I was just trying to start some talk about africa to see if i could think of any new cool ways to beat my friends.

    new question though, what do you think is the optimal use of the german bomber is strategic bombing worth it?

    Lots of threads on that. Go back a few pages thru old threads you should find tons of talk on the subject of SBR.
