Part 2 and Part 3 of Bataan are posted.
See:

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:

Thanks; that was indeed the purpose, though the humor was grim.  :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.
