Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
American (USMC)Japanese
With the Army’s 25th Division at its side, the 2nd Marine Division began the drive to clear Guadalcanal of its last defenders. An armor-supported drive along the coast failed to break through, while the 8th Marines encountered heavy resistance along the slopes of Hills 83 and 84 and the 6th Marines pushed north to flank the defenders. Sensing the fragility of his position, General Maruyama ordered his troops to withdraw. Could the dug-in Japanese retire in good order without getting caught in the Marine net?
