Hello Everyone,
Linked below are Missions 2 and 3 for Operation Hailstone played solo. My adaptation of the USN air attack versus the Japanese anchorage in Truk Lagoon in 1944.

The story is told by my customary briefly captioned photos. You might like some of them. They are different.

Excellent postó went back to read the previous attacks, as I had missed these.
Looks like a great set of rules.

And of course your photos are always evocative. I was internally hissing at the Jap planes… laugh

Nice game! The snow through me off for a second. Here is an excellent narrative of the raid on Truk.

Looks like you had a great time. I particularly like the terrain. BTH is s a good solo rule set.

Old Contemptable, the three fellows going over Operation Hailstone were very good. Thank you.

Joe, thank you. Yes BTH can be played solo. The four missions of our Operation hailstone were played solo many times before game day which was today, May 4th, 2024. We had a very good time
