I shall return the welcome in the way it was given.
To whom should I surrender?
American bodies, or to the owners of the boots, who I see running

I can’t stop laughing - your western fools are so funny :-))
So you Japs wear those thick glasses because you can't see the jungle

The Japs were to make the main push in the north with 3 inf companies and armor support. 2 companies
were to cross the river in the center. When the battle started it became clear that the weather had changed since initial
planning, and the 2 companies could not cross the river as planned, they had to head north. Meanwhile the other companies
met sporadic resistance and 81 mm mortar fire that hammered constantly every turn suppressing the troops. Good spirits held
morale high, and in the last turn all but one objective was taken. This was really a race against time.
Japanese forces were intially held up but stubborn marines and danger
close mortar fire.
However, lack of reserves forced the marines to give
ground in face of a determined Japanese commander intent on his objectives.
When all was said and done their were only numerous bodies to be buried and
prisoners to be marched away.
You know the map, river running N-S through the map.
Japan had a foot hold of the east bank at
had to start behind the river in south. I massed my
troop north of the bridge, only a reinforced company
south. First thing I noticed was that the troops
have no rafts so southern force was useless, then I
noticed that it
is raining so my northern forces were
in trouble, they couldn't reach all the objectives
even if I send them to the
trails and open at the
Early turns were used to send scouts and cavalry
forward to see what and where, using arty to
and save time which was essential. Scouts did hit
engineers in the northern woods and were quickly taken
in the middle my arty and quick units scored some
kills and lost some.
Battle continued between my charging cavarly company,
supported with my score of tanks and scouts,
Marine troops deployed in a defencing chain along the
eastern edge of the clear running from the bridge
NE. Arty played a crucial part in the fight
helping my cavalry in their very hard job.
Occationally my footmen reached the front and helped
what they could. US Marines did couple
counter attacks with armour taking out half my armour.
On turn 15 only one squad of footmen was lost while
one cavarly squad was still in game. At that
point my reinforcement motorcycles arrived to the
front and sealed the
fate of the battle although about
half of them were immod in the tough terrain before
reaching the battle.
Clear weather would have made this too easy so maybe
it was not the most balanced battle
but now it was
nerve wrecking in the early parts. I was surprised how
easily Japs were able to take out the marines,
raiders and engineers with flamer.
It would be nice to hear how my opponent perveived the
The Jap's hit us hard.......in the first few minutes
of the battle it was touch and go.......as
advanced under the cover of deadly 150mm motar rounds
and a smoke screen. The marines clung to the ground
to avoid being decimated. Thinking to
themselves that they did not have the firepower to
turn back this Banzai
charge supported by at least 10
tanks. Fortunately an inteligence breakthru allowed
reinforcements to be rushed
to the front only 10
minutes after the battle started. These tanks rushed
to the danger points and blunted the
Jap's push. Hand
to hand fighting ensued but the jap morale was broken
on the southern part of the MLR.
After just 32minutes
the battle ended with more than half the marines and
their support wiped out.
...quotes from the opening days of the Guadacanal
After Action Report:
The battle plan was based upon the terrain and the poor vision of the slat eyed devils. As
expected, the yellow runts came charging the pennisula with hopes of an early sake party. To counter the charge, big
shore batteries were place for direct and crossfire at the middle finger of Darwin. They targeted transports with armor
and secondarily transports with troops. They did their job but as expected, were limited by the cowardly use of smoke.
To slow the jap mass, artillery priority sites were placed near tank traps and expected routes of travel. The yellow
buggers finally broke out from the pennisula at the eighth turn but were met with deadly fire from outnumbered armoured cars
and sherman tanks. A constant threat was jap air attack with poor AA fire from stressed USA troops. I do believe
that yellow emporer was personally directing their heavy guns as they were accurate and were blessed with an ungodly amount
of ammo. I must admit that the battle may have been lost because of poor intelligence of our commander. It may
have been a lack of intelligence but reserves were mistakely not allowed to arrive until after the tenth turn when they could
have been used several turns earlier. This may have kept the horde back for several turns and prevented them from
capturing inland v hexes. Not all hexes were lost but enough for a loss. Remember, the only good bug is a dead
dan: the horses need to go.....even though it was discovered that they
were super cav, they ate up so many shots and killed a fair amount of armour before that happened.....and when they did attack,
it was with the force of a regiment.....it was unreal that they could swim across the sea and not need transports.
It was a very close figth, as for me having the
most V-hexes I must ask if you was aware
of the 2
hexes who was designed not to be recaptured (the one on east point, and the obe north of East Point.
You have me really bottled up, and actually I think that the "rarity on" situation, helped the japanese
in the end.
As you saw I had just a few Landing Crafts - the game instead provided me with the ka-tsu heavy amphibian,
who is not as
fast on water as a LCR, but provided me with a very mobile force when I gotpast your antitank devises.
I com ashore with only tanks and infantry, and the anphibian trucks Ihad bought, i'm not sure I had made it.
The map - with the east point giving me such a short distance to the shore, was a benefit too.
A true mission impossible, two options going at it in
the open against allied armour for 20 turns
would have been suicide or fighting for 15 turns in
the town where Jap infantry could use its strengths. I
to try to rush the town.
Nothing went right in this one, it's raining which was
expected, only three dozers available,
the bloody HQ
planted all infantry in landing crafts that move 3
hexes per turn in water. I worked several hours with
setup to get as much troops in the bigger crafts
as possible to have some sort of first wave with my
armour. Once the
first crafts landed so did enemy
arty, one battery of 155mm and two of 105mm guns kept
my troops in the landing zone
very firmly, troops
vanished in the shelling but some crept forward
removing the few scouts scanning the sea. It took
lot more crawling and slow fighting but Japs moved
forward with alarming casualties against Sherman Vs,
blocked roads. Only casualties to allied
armour was infilted by flamers and infantry assaults.
Between turns 6-8 my
infantry was finally reaching the
beach but enemy bombardment delayed them so much that
it was on turn 10 that the advancing
start. In five turns it was a mad rush against deadly
hale of shells, only bright spot was my arty which
me gain what I did, 8 objectives.
Evaluation of map and equipment forced Japanese force
to try to lure the trapping
enemy into a trap of our
own. The central hills were chosen for the spot of a
concentrated line of engineers, AT-teams
supported by a dozen tanks.
The plan worked as the few scouts spotted several
Fireflies, Shermans and
HTs closing in from north and
south. Sniping guns behind lines of infantry caused
plenty of damage and were intact in
the end, tanks
failed to deliver more than a kill or two before being
shot to pieces by superior allied tanks.
this was a trap in the desert but maybe not on
the side intended.
