Example text

Toyoda understood what Mikawa was driving at, but Tokyo wanted Shima’s ships free to be called upon. Having gotten the army to back down on its opposition to the decisive battle, the Navy Section was eager to pressure the army into greater commitment and did not want a lack of ships being cited as an excuse. ”29 Ozawa received Manila’s suggestion about 2YB at the same time as Toyoda, and with the Main Force’s sortie imminent, realizing he might soon have Shima back at his disposal, Ozawa’s staff rushed to draft a role for him.

After the capture of Saipan conceivably the Philippines could have been bypassed entirely as had been done to the great Japanese bases at Truk and Rabaul—both cut off from supplies and air support and their garrisons left to wither on the vine. After all, the primary goal of both the Central Pacific campaign of Admiral Chester W. Nimitz and the Southwest Pacific campaign of MacArthur was to converge on Japan’s inner defense sphere, to cut the supply chain of bases between Japan and its southern oil territories, to build air bases for heavy bombers in range to pound Japan, and ultimately, if necessary, to invade the home islands to compel complete surrender.

Toyoda wanted to get back to Tokyo and start making all the key decisions with his full resources and staff at hand. As he headed back, his chief of staff continued to issue orders and even revisions in his name. Toyoda had just taken to the air for Kyushu when, as noted above, Kusaka radioed Shima’s Mako-bound fleet and told him that 2YB had been assigned to Southwest Area Fleet and was, after refueling in Formosa, to proceed immediately to Manila. Kusaka also attached Cruiser Division 16 to Shima’s command.
