“needle… Invasion! The southern fascists have begun the invasion!”
The invasion of South Japan came as a great shock to North Japan.
The Soviet Union deployed an international brigade and trained the North Japanese Self-Defense Force in preparation for an “invasion in the near future,” but never told exactly when.
North Japan, which had limited military power and had its intelligence dependent on the Soviet Union, was unable to resist South Japan’s surprise and preemptive invasion at all.
“The Armed Police and the 2nd Regiment of the Self-Defense Forces have been besieged in Tokyo!”
“The elite divisions of the fascists are moving quickly north from the west!”
However, despite receiving such a report, southern Japan was still confident.
“Salvation comes from the USSR! Wait until the Soviet Army and the International Brigade enter the war!”
[…] Yes! Okay!]
It was pathetic to tell the subordinate units to wait for the relief force of another country to arrive without achieving self-defense in their own country, but that was the reality.
The Self-Defense Forces were being nurtured as auxiliary forces of the Soviet Army. The Soviet military government talked about the establishment of the Self-Defense Forces and the establishment and delivery of a force plan.
“The Japanese Self-Defense Forces will always serve as an auxiliary force for the Soviet Union in the Far East.”
Former military government commander General Tolbuhin is now the commander of the Far East Military District, and rumors have circulated that he will also command the “Allied Forces” to be established in the future.
The Allied Forces of the Five Powers, including North Japan, the Republic of Korea, Manchuria, and the People’s Republic of China, plus the Soviet Union, will fight for the interests of the socialist bloc as the Soviet Far East partners.
‘And among them, North Japan is probably the first meat shield… .’
You can call them meat shield, sacrificial lamb, spearman, or moor. That was the position Japan was in.
The four countries, including the Soviet Union, still hated Japan as the culprit of colonial rule and the former enemy. Fortunately, North Japan was founded by communists who resisted the Japanese Empire, and it was less because of the protection of the Soviet Union.
The Soviet Union was not stingy in driving the Japanese to death.
“The price of our blood will be the foundation for future generations to live in a better world! Defend your position! Buy your time!”
“How much I longed, how long I waited. A world of equality where workers become masters!”
Singing the newly established unofficial national anthem of North Japan, “Jingun Song”, the Self-Defense Forces and North Japanese paramilitary groups willingly threw themselves to death.
“Now we have the weapon to change the world. Now we have the wisdom to change our world!”
The weapons given them were meager. Old-fashioned rifles and crudely made junk mortars. However, it was not enough, so he had to use the magazines and guns left from the bodies of his fallen comrades.
“Moving forward with the people! Forward with the flag of the Republic!”
“Let’s go for a new world of democracy, equality, and liberation!”
In front of the machine gun, in front of the grenade, the soldiers did not hesitate to jump in for their comrades and comrades.
“If you dig trenches from the rear, build barbed wire, and build defenses, they can stop you. The main building will take the time first. Long live the Republic! hurray!”
The political committee member said so and was the first to charge forward. The soldiers, who were trembling with rifles while concealing themselves among the collapsed buildings, wept and looked at the oxidizing political commissar in order to attract the attention of the machine gunner.
“We have to fight… must fight… .”
At least they had hope. 1 week. The superior told me to hold on for only one week.
“The first completion of ‘Genji Line’ is one week! If we hold on until then, we can defend our points!”
It took one week to build a defense line that could stop the invasion of South Japan with World War I-level weapons. One month if tanks, fighters and bombers are deployed.
The U.S. military has not yet handed over tanks and aircraft to the Japanese. And above all, there were Soviet troops.

“Ha ha ha! After all, the main hall, the main building, the main building must be the god of strategy!”
“What! This is only a prelude!”
Ha ha ha ha ha! As he burst into madness, his subordinates looked at him with a puzzled expression.
Even in Japan, where humility is not common, can someone who asks to call themselves a ‘god of warfare’ be considered a normal person?
However, the chief of staff of the Eastern Army of the Japanese Armed Forces, Major General Masanobu Tsuji, does not care much about such things. seemed to be a character.
Former Prime Minister Hideki Tojo predicted that he would become an equal to support the future of the army, so perhaps it was.
Commander-in-Chief Mutaguchi also trusted him enough to entrust him with the chief of staff of the Eastern Army, which was far more important than the Western one.
“Now, we will clear out the rebels isolated in Tokyo and march to Sendai. Do you understand?”
“Yes? nevertheless… Me, they’ve already lost their supply lines! Even if you mobilize only one regiment at this rate and advance in a besieged state… .”
“noisy! Then what about the reconstruction of Yasukuni Shrine? Wouldn’t you like to drive the weightlifters out of the imperial capital as soon as possible?”
Although not as good as the North Japanese Army, the South Japanese Army was also poorly armed. Rifles, machine guns, and mortars. Ammunition was sufficient, but it was insufficient to clear the enemy forces that were in cover in the city.
It would be nice to have a flamethrower, shotgun, or assault rifle, but such weapons were very few in the South Japanese Army. In the first place, there was a lack of oil, and although there was a flamethrower, it could not be used, and the shotgun was not a standard weapon.
A sensible tactic was to expect the roughly 6,000 “enemy” of the siege and isolated “enemy” of the city to wither to death.
“The equipment of the Western Armed Forces is insufficient, and there is a long way to go, Chief of Staff. Although there are more than 6,000 enemy forces, two divisions will be sufficient to clear them. Even if you just set up company-level positions at each point and block them… .”
“Why are you sending in two divisions each? Materials are finite, but the human mind is infinite! Do you really want the imperial army, which is well-equipped, to lose against such remnants?”
The staff were astonished when remarks they could not have imagined came out one after another.
‘No, the author was the future of the empire?’
‘future… future… There was only darkness… .’
Somehow, thinking that there was a reason for the imperial army’s defeat, the staff members each whispered something while listening to the chief of staff.
“But… Do you, Commander-in-chief, authorize this operation?”
“Who am I? I am the man called the god of strategy in the Imperial Army. Permission, that’s all you can get. wait!”
He asks himself to be called the god of strategy, and now he is called the god of strategy in the Imperial Army.
The staff shook their heads, thinking that it was fortunate that the US OSS agent was not watching this.
“If anyone else sees that… Ugh, just imagining it makes me want to do it.”
“I sympathize. The thought of showing it to my son is terrifying.”
Is there really a future? The enemy’s defense could be thickened quickly. An army without tanks and artillery cannot break through a trench line.
Before that, after advancing as far as possible, we should secure as much territory as possible by fortifying our defenses together and leading them into a long-term battle… . Most of the staff thought that the US and the US would always intervene.
After advancing to the highest line, the land was recognized, and the North Soviet puppet state was replayed in a long war! Although that was the plan of the upper ranks, Chief of Staff Tsuji spoke as if he could destroy the North Japanese Army by running wild at will.
“Please God bless you… .”
I hope that the author, Chiji, won’t just ruin the lineage.

Of course, a plan is a law that goes against it from the moment it is made.
If the plan had been flowing from the moment it was made, it had to be even more so.
“Aren’t these bastards really crazy?”
“Heh heh heh… Really… Hmmm… I can only say it was creative.”
In fact, it was a little bit creative. This is the tactic the British used during the Opium Wars. If you think about how much the war “damaged the honor and prestige of the British Empire,” it might be a good fit.
What was the US thinking here? Considering the corruption of its successor, the CIA, this madness of the OSS was understandable to some extent.
The CIA is far more insane, so they sold weapons to the enemy country, Iran, and supported the Central and South American rebels with the money, while smuggling drugs and releasing them in Korea. It’s hard to understand what MacArthur was thinking, given the uproar of the Reagan administration over this, known as the Iran-Contra incident.
“Hmm, looking at this, you don’t seem to think that the whole OSS information is leaking out.”
“Yes, Comrade Secretary General. So far, no circumstances have been confirmed that the U.S. counterintelligence seriously suspects that our secrets have been leaked.”
You are literally ruining the country by spilling all kinds of information. Considering the number of shovels the CIA has committed in actual history, it could have been.
Anyway, how much hell does this make South America? I couldn’t even imagine.
In real history, the banana republics became such a hell. In countries where the United States holds almost all interests and changes governments arbitrarily, governments that respond to popular demands cannot be established.
Governments that listened to even the slightest bit of the people’s demands, such as Castro and Allende, were ousted in a CIA-backed coup. Compliant to the United States and tyrannical to their own demands for democratization, the “Junta” (literally translated as committee, paraphrased military dictatorship group) acceded to any demands in order to keep their place.
When the public authorities were obsessed with protecting their own rice bowls, gang groups colluded with power were formed below. These cartels have truly brought a hell of a human race to Latin America.
What kind of dreams can young people dream of in such a place! Development aid funds go into the pockets of the powerful and drug lords, and the wealth of society is sucked into the pockets of a few and into foreign countries.
But the problem was clear.
“Comrade Secretary General. But intervening in South America is bound to be ineffective for us. South America is too far away… .”
Just as the United States could not advance beyond the eastern Mediterranean, we could have made it to the Atlantic, but it was difficult. The French port of Brest was a natural destination, but the English-French Strait and the GIUK line were still almost impossible to pass.
Gibraltar is also in the hands of Spain, that is, the United States, so the only way out of the Mediterranean is Suez. Just as the United States had to go round the Cape of Good Hope in the Atlantic Ocean to India, we too had to go round the Cape of Good Hope to South America. If there is no middle ground on the east and west coasts of Africa… It was very inefficient.
Also, the moment the United States intervenes in Latin America, the front yard, the Cold War will become infinitely hotter. Just like when a revolutionary government and nuclear missiles entered Cuba.
When it comes to detonating the Cuban Missile Crisis against MacArthur, not Kennedy, I was not confident at all. Confidence to stop the extinction of mankind.
Of course, you will have to intervene at some point… .
“then… Let’s make Africa on our side first.”
The principle has always been simple. Breaking down the enemy’s weakest link first.
And the weakest link among America’s current European allies was Portugal, after all. Portugal, which has been reduced to a third-class country in Europe after the Age of Exploration, made it easier to advance into the Atlantic Ocean as a link that could destroy Spain.
If Portugal, which is raging from the colonial war, collapses, the mainland and African colonies collapse together… This will also act like dominoes. The fall of Spain between Portugal and France, the fall of Italy isolated on the Mediterranean, the complete communism of the continent and the fall of England!
North Africa was already half communist, this time it was time to drop red bombs on the Black Continent, South Africa.
