Port Stanley had surrendered the previous day. Lieutenant Mills and the Marine Detachment from the HMS Endurance had been put ashore at Grytviken on South Georgia Island to establish a military presence. Mills' rules of engagement allowed him to resist an Argentine incursion, but to try and prevent undue loss of Life. Mills' plan was to deploy his troops in good positions, engage the enemy briefly and then pick up their bergens at the Church before yomping into the nearby mountains.

This series of three scenarios is meant to be played PBEM. The scenarios have the same units and map, but the setup of the Royal Marines is different in each. The defending British player should choose which of the three defending positions he would like his troops to adopt, start the game, and send it to his opponent who will not know which of the positions the British occupy. This scenarios has the British setup historically on King Edward Point.

Should the British player sink the ARA Guerrico in game terms, this represents the vessel absorbing damage to the extent that it is no longer combat effective. This was close to the historical result.

Argentinians seem to have an edge here with their ability to deploy ground forces, naval and air assets. Most of the key locations were overrun quickly as they were lightly screened or not defended at all due to the manpower shortage.

In this game the winning factor was the Brits being lucky enough to bring down one helicopter and damage (sink) the corvette. That translates into a 20 point advantage for the Brits and swings the game from a draw to a major victory.
