Japan Overall Strategy
“Never get involved in a land war in Asia!”
For the Japanese, it’s too late to live out those time honored
words of wisdom, so you’ll just have to fight the war to the best of
Your best is accomplished by maximizing transports bringing across
infantry into Asia. Make the right combinations of purchases to keep the
pipeline of infantry flowing straight across Asia and down Russia’s
Never leave a mid-sized army just outside of Russia where the
Russians could destroy it easily. As quickly as you can, get to where
you can consistently take Evenki, Novo., and Kaz. each turn, forcing the
Russians to take it back on theirs. This will bleed the Reds white.
If Germany loses their Mediterranean fleet, try to get involved by
landing troops on the backside of Africa, or simply move some of your
infantry over to Africa.
I wouldn’t attack Australia unless you have nothing else better to
do with your battleship bombarding capability, and particularly if the
UK pulls out their two infantry leaving it undefended. Attacking a
defended Australia simply gives the UK the opportunity to distract the
Japanese from sending even more infantry to Asia.
