"Williwaws" Over Chichagof - The Matrix Games version of Rising Sun
Chichagof Harbour area, Attu Island, Aleutians Islands : Best played as Allied. Attu, the westernmost Aleutian island, is about 20 by 35 miles in size. This island was occupied in June 1942 by the Japanese and was the site of some bloodiest fighting during WWII (second only to Iwo Jima) commencing on "D-Day" 11 May 1943 with the landing of the 7th US Division Combat Team. The battle of Attu ended 31 May and the Japanese forces (under command of Col. Yasuyo Yamasaki) on the island were annihilated. *-* This scenario is about the last push of the 17th US Infantry regiment toward Chichagof harbour. Hypothetical version : The Historical counter attack on the 29th of May by 800 men of the Col. Yamasaki Force didn't happen (look at the "When the Snow Tiger Pounced" original Rising Sun scenario). Col. Yamasaki prefered to reinforce defense around Chichagof harbour area... Now It's time for you to fight against the last Japanese "Williwaws" !
