The Japanese expansion into China in 1937 followed numerous smaller clashes and signalled the start of the Japanese expansion that would eventually lead to all out war in East Asia. War quickly spread throughout East Asia and eventually involved several major powers of WWII. This period includes major battles such as Pearl Harbour and Midway, but also smaller battles such as the sinking of Repulse and Prince of Wales.
The Rules and Regs
This campaign covers all aircraft that participated in air battles in East Asian in World War II including the initial expansionist wars that led to a full scale conflict. This means that the Sino-Japanese Conflict and the clashes between Soviet and Japan from 1931 to 1945 are also covered by this campaign. Any sea battles including aircraft from aircraft carriers are also included. So pick your entry. The possibilities are endless from the Sino-Japanese conflict to Pearl Harbour to Midway to Leyte Gulf to Okinawa to Manchuria to Enola Gay.
