"This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."-Sir Winston Churchill.
Six weeks ago. Imperial Japanese military knees conquered and occupied the Hawaiian Islands. A puppet king sits on Hawaii's throne, his strings controlled by the general of the invasion force. American POWs, malnourished and weak, are enslaved as hard laborers until death takes them. Civilians fare little better, struggling to survive on dwindling resources. And families of Japanese origin find their loyalties divided.
Despite the victory, the strain is starting to take its toll on the Japanese. Inhabiting the islands and keeping American. British, and Australian forces at bay are pushing their supply lines to the breaking point.
Meanwhile, across the United States, from Pensacola, Florida, to San Diego, California, the military is marshaling its forces. Steel factories and fuel refineries are operating around the clock. New recruits are enlisting, undergoing rigorous training exercises.
All for the opportunity to strike the enemy.
