More on that very shortlyThe Army-Navy rivalry is only escalating I see.
I wonder if a direct attack on the Java oil fields would actually be faster at cutting off Japan's oil given the situation....
A fair amount of that oil is already getting sunk by submarines that now have working torpedoes, and the blockade is only going to get tighter. And taking Java doesn't get the Allies any closer to the Marianas or any other potential B-29 airfields, so there's certainly a good reason to support the Navy's choice as well.Yeah, I hate to say it but I am with MacArthur on this one. Go to Java and take the oil fields. They are far more important than Micronesia.
