Date: November 4, 1945 - Size, Medium - Location: Ariake Bay, Southern Kyushu, Japan - Intended for Head to Head or Solo play as either side. For Solo Victory Conditions see the file "J45-Solo-Vic-Cond.pdf" in the main game folder. Narrative: The landing in Ariake Bay for the XI Corps was a bloody mess! The US commanders were not expecting the elite 86th Infantry Division to be defending the beachhead. As a result losses were high and the troops took until 4pm to exit the landing areas and press inland. On the 5th of November the Japanese received reinforcements - the advance elements of 98th IM Brigade began arriving early in the morning. Formations from the 77th Infantry Division also arrived later in the morning. Can the US forces wrest the inland VP locations from the Japanese forces?
