Date: November 4, 1945 - Size, Campaign - Location: Southern Kyushu, Japan - Intended for Head to Head play - This campaign scenario depicts the Operation Olympic plan which was to invade the island of Kyushu in order to have a location from which to base aircraft and ships which would be used in the second part of Operation Downfall. The Allies knew that the Japanese were already on to their plan and had based an enormous force on the island. What they didn't know was the exact location of the Japanese reserves. The Japanese were careful to disguise their fortifications and troop locations. Any attempt at taking Kyushu would come at a stiff price. This campaign scenario includes Strategy choices for both sides to include different locations for the Japanese reserves. The Allies will have some choices in invasion locations as well. The Japanese have Partisan units that enter on the map with a scatter value for variable hex entry. These units have Demolition capability forcing the Allies to keep some troops near the rear areas to secure the important supply sources and VPs.
