S3#106 – December of Doom - December 1941

The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor was just the first of many shocks in the Pacific. To the Allied Nations December 1941 was very bleak indeed. Success at Pearl was followed by Japanese invasions of Malaysia and the Philippines. Everywhere the Allies were in retreat. In the air modern Japanese fighters reigned supreme over obsolete Allied aircraft who had to rely on the bravery of their pilots to triumph. Japan was set to rule the Pacific.

This series will highlight the revised early war pacific fighters. A new series format with 1 life per aircraft type has proven popular.
