Operation: Cherry Blossom Storyline

For Historical Information: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Cherry_Blossoms_at_Night

"We call upon the government of Japan to proclaim now the unconditional surrender of all Japanese armed forces and to provide proper and adequate assurances of their good faith in such action. The alternative for Japan is prompt and utter destruction."

- Potsdam Declaration (Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, Chiang Kai-shek).

“I consider the Joint Proclamation a rehash of the Declaration at the Cairo Conference. As for the Government, it does not attach any important value to it at all. The only thing to do is just kill it with silence. We will do nothing but press on to the bitter end to bring about a successful completion of the war.”

- Prime Minister Suzuki.

Allies Drop Atomic Weapons On Japanese Cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

The United States with the expressed permission of the United Kingdom has dropped two different types of atomic weapons on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. “Fat Man” and “Little Boy” have caused massive amounts of damage to both cities, resulting in devastation of local infrastructure, utilities, military installations, and the deaths of thousands of Japanese citizens. The use of these new weapons developed in conjunction with Great Britain, is hoped to push the remnants of the Japanese Empire into capitulating and accepting the terms of the Potsdam Declaration

Japanese Submarines and Aircraft Sighted Off The California Coast

The United States Navy has intercepted five Japanese bombers launched from I-400 class submarines. The Imperial aircraft managed to evade radar detection and were not spotted until they were within 2 miles of San Diego. Damage however, appears to be minimal, with downed aircraft crashing into nearby structures and roadways. The aircraft were reported to be lightly armed with unknown types of ceramic bombs along with conventional gravity bombs. The remaining Submarines sunk the Destroyers USS Hamilton and USS Columbus before disappearing before the waves west of California.

The United States Navy in conjunction with the Air Force has reinforced anti-aircraft defenses along the California coastline with the expectation of further Japanese attacks in the Pacific region. In addition to reinforced anti-air defenses, the Navy has begun to conduct more thorough patrols of nearby sea lanes and ports.

Mysterious Illness Reported Near Los Angeles and San Diego

Hospitals and clinics around Southern California have been flooded with people seeking treatment for an unknown illness that is sewing panic among locals. Swollen lymph nodes, tumors, and a high fever have been reported by patients and medical staff in the affected areas. The illness, now dubbed as “Diego Fever” has baffled members of the medical community and scholars around the country. Having already caused 15 deaths, hospitals and clinics are scrambling to discover the source of this mysterious sickness and how to effectively treat it before more deaths occur. Doctor’s from the military have also been recruited to aid with local relief efforts and attempt to study this illness.

Multiple makeshift clinics and treatment centers have sprung up in various parts of Southern California. Some staffed by auxiliary members of the military in conjunction with local medical personnel, others by the American Red Cross. This in contrast to the massive wartime build-up of men and supplies, makes for a disconcerting sight across the state. The governor of California has asked the public for volunteers to aid with the staffing of overwhelmed medical facilities.

Imperial Navy Bombards and Invades Hawaiian Territory

Suffering its worst defeat since the initial attack on Pearl Harbor, the American navy has been dealt a damaging blow by the Japanese. The remnants of the Japanese navy have pulled off an astounding victory over the United States. In a well calculated pre dawn attack, Japanese Zeros scored direct hits on two aircraft carriers and three destroyers. All five ships were badly damaged and sank quickly in the harbor with all crew members on board. The bombing also ignited munitions and fuel depots in the center of the base, starting massive fires consuming three barracks and partially destroyed a newly built radar station.

The initial wave of air and naval bombardment was followed by an immediate amphibious assault by the Imperial Japanese Navy, landing on multiple beaches on O’ahu and Hawai’i. The landing quickly overwhelmed already strained American forces on the islands. The main island of Hawai’i was captured when the last of U.S. troops evacuated to Kaua’i under heavy Japanese fire.
General Douglas MacArthur has quoted as saying that he is ‘extremely concerned’ regarding the loss of life and land on the Hawaiian territory. The greatest fear however is the Japanese will copy the American strategy of taking island after island, getting ever closer to the American mainland. Aerial reconnaissance over the Pacific ocean is said to have spotted multiple Cruisers, supply ships, and an additional aircraft carrier heading towards the Hawaiian Islands. The Japanese carriers Ijjuin, Tetsutaro, Kakuta, recently moored at Pearl Harbor are reported to be moving east in the Pacific Ocean

California Hospitals Overwhelmed With Severely Ill Patients

Hospitals in California are overflowing with severely ill patients desperately seeking treatment. ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before, so many people and so fast.  Dr. Wiat Kraft said. “It’s a grizzly sight, our morgue is overflowing. We don’t know what to do.” The mysterious illness which surfaced about a month ago in the region is considered an epidemic by universities and researchers around the country. Experts at Johns Hopkins University and officials at Yale have recommended quarantining the region of Southern California to prevent the outbreak from spreading.

Government officials seem to agree with this decision. Large numbers of troops have left bases in Northern California and Oregon to join an already growing number of government and law enforcement officials. Quarantined areas are reminiscent of battlefields, barbed wire, barrages, and soldiers everywhere. Checkpoints have been erected on major roadways in and out of areas. Everybody passing through the gates is subject to a thorough shakedown. Troops bound to reinforce already weak American positions on the Hawaiian islands have been ordered to stay on the mainland and assist with the emergency in the state.

U.S. Troops Diverted To Assist Quarantine of Southern California

In a rapidly worsening situation, American troops destined towards reinforcing positions throughout the Pacific have been diverted towards California to enforce a nearly statewide quarantine. Civilians have been subject to a military curfew with the intent of minimizing the damage caused by this unknown disease. All major highways and roads have been blockaded and all rail services have been shut down.

Multiple military advisers have expressed concern over the diversion of thousands of troops designed to combat areas in the Pacific towards emergency assistance in the United States. Military positions throughout the Pacific theater of war, including the now contested Hawaiian islands are already strained by renewed Imperial assaults. These positions will now be devoid of almost all reinforcements from the mainland United States.
