U.S. Asiatic Fleet

The Asiatic Fleet was responsible for patrolling U.S. possessions in the Far East. With no unit larger than a cruiser, it could not possibly stand up for long against Combined Fleet, and in fact the Philippines had been effectively written off in Navy pre-war planning. With the destruction of MacArthur's air power on the first day of the war, Hart withdrew all his forces except for submarines and some small units. This created lasting bitterness in MacArthur towards the Navy.
