Guam was the most populous Micronesian island before the Second Great Depression fell upon us. That is why it became the heart of the last defense against China when it reached its hands out to grasp all of Asia. America’s diminished military was the heart of the defense, but every surviving free military unit of Fallen Asia bolstered their numbers. Korean stood beside Vietnamese or Japanese in defense of Guam’s beaches, while scratch-built squadrons flew every flag of Asia. China owned some of the best blue-water warships and transports in the world, but it lacked the experience of projecting power far from the coast. America could no longer project her power, but those naval crewmen who remained were heirs to the institutional knowledge of the greatest navy the world had ever known. Even in their twilight, they gathered together the rag tag remnants of Fallen Asia’s fleets and air forces and charged out into one of the greatest storms of the century as it lashed the Philippine Sea and scattered China’s invasion fleet all over the ocean. They sunk or captured every single Chinese vessel that set sail to attack Guam. It was one of the most lopsided victories in naval combat history, and not a word of it is ever spoken of in China to this day.
