Following the successful preliminary landings on the outer Islands it's now time for the second stage, troops from the 5th Amphibious Corps have landed in force around the seaport of Kushikino. As the spearhead unit it is up to the men of the 5th Amphibious Corps to make the landings a success. Now 4 days following the main landings with the beachhead secure its time to advance inland. As the dawn breaks and the early morning fog starts to clear battalion sized groups of Marines are cautiously advancing along the valley bottoms. Seeking out the remaining Japanese opposition in the vicinity of the beachead and with their nearest support over 2 kilometers away the advancing marines feel over exposed in the oppressive early morning silence.

The end result was a draw, but it was 1 point short of a MINOR victory for the Allies. this is only the 2nd time this has ever happened to me.

I designed it, of course it's great. :-)
Play it blind and both sides have to quickly decide on the tactics they will use to win this game. Make the wrong choice and you are toast. Check the scenario beforehand and you are just spoiling the fun.

The Japanese need to move quickly to good defensive positions before the Marines can strike.

Tough sledding for the americans in this one! Japs have caves that can transfer units to the battle field that need help quickly! Americans struggle to get any pressure on the caves.
