Date: November 4, 1945 - Size, Medium - Location: 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 I Corps was tasked with landing on the eastern beaches and driving inland to link up with XI Corps to the southwest and also establish the right flank of the Allied lines. With the 25th, 33rd and 41st they had a tough mission in that they were up against good Japanese troops. The 33rd Division would bear the brunt of the fighting at Cord Beach due to its isolated nature. The landing was brutal with many casualties on both sides. By the end of the first day they had only advance three kilometers inland. The second day was not much better with another five kilometers gained but for a high loss of life. A fierce counterattack by the Japanese 6th Tank Brigade curtailed any thoughts of the 33rd Division breaking out from their slim beachhead. The cost at the eastern beaches had been high for the US forces and it would only be with the addition of another division that they would be able to break the grip of the stubborn Japanese defenders.
