In case anyone is interested in following along, I thought I’d start a thread to link to new posts on my AL&SW blog (the purpose of which is explained here, or in more depth in the two “foreword” posts linked below). Hope you enjoy, and any comments are always welcome.

Foreword (v 1.0, v 2.0)

December 1941
Turn 1: It could have been worse...
Turn 2: First blood
Turn 3: A quiet week (mostly)

January 1942
Turn 4: The torpedoes are now trying to kill us directly
Turn 5: Luzon falls; chaos in WestPac
Turn 6: Back on track?
Turn 7: Thresher vs. Japan

February 1942
Turn 8: Accidents happen
Turn 9: All we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant
Turn 10: What exactly is a sargo?
Turn 11: Codename: “Wounded Bear”

March 1942
Turn 12: Vignettes from a war
Turn 13: Triskaidekaphobia
Turn 14: Skipjack, again
Turn 15: The end of the beginning

April 1942
Turn 16: On performing suboptimally
Turn 17: There seems to be something wrong with our submarines this month
Turn 18: 0-for-60

Turn 20: Hail and farewell
Turn 21: Average (finally)
Turn 22: Barriers and milestones

I am following your blog, and really enjoy reading it. Only shame is the time I need to wait for next post

Inspired by your blog, I suddenly felt a strange need to play Silent War again
So I started a game and also my own blog.
Thanks and sorry for coping you modest

Thanks to everyone for the encouragement.

Turn 6 is up.

Note that Turn 7 will cover the rest of January, so the next update will be a little longer in coming than usual.

Never play block wargames with a dentist, they have those little mirrors to peek behind the block.

I really like this game. When I played the early campaign from Dec 41 to Dec. 42 I had reached war period 3. I wasn't sure if I was lucky, did something wrong, or played a great game. My best friend's dad was picked up by a sub 3 days at sea in a raft after the battle of Midway. (he was a recon pilot). He died a few years back, now I wished I asked him which sub it was. I would highlight the counter.

My blog is here but i'm not playing in real time, also I'm only plaing the East Wind Early campaign.
I have done 21 turns from 34, so slowly closing to the war end. I only wish my english could be better, to properly describe the situations in game.

By the way I can't wait for more Greywing posts, I love to read his blog so much. Can I have a request for much longer posts? After waiting the week I get thru them so quick. I course I like them as they are too it is only a gentle suggestion

You do a fabulous job of taking a lot of die rolls and writing it up as a compelling narrative. I look forward to every new installment.

Great stuff. And you're doing very well -- 130,000 tons by the first week of March? You're well on your way to making the May quota.

Ugh. I hope you're not behind the required pace to retain your commission...
