I am fishing around for information on the fuel avaialble to japan during 1942. Data for gross reserves and total intake for the year is common, but details on the monthly or quarterly production, broken down by location, is more difficult to find. Also distribution. I have seen some hints that difficulty in providing fuel to the Japanese navy at its forward bases such as Truk & Raubal influenced stratigic & operational decisions in 1942, but lack the information to understand these remarks.
Thanks for any help here.
