SEE Misc file below for scenario. . .Due to irregularly drawn borders, the small hill of Changkufeng became a bone of contention between Japan and the USSR. Each side sought every advantage along their natural border. The Russians began to fortify the hill while the diplomatic process stalled. What the Japanese saw as an encroachment by the Soviets caused the local military commander to plan a night attack to clear the Soviets from the hill. Jumping off in near ptch black darkness, the men of the 1st Battalion, 75th Regiment crept toward the enemy wire. Japanese stealth did not last long. As the sappers were trying to clear holes in the wire, Russian MG fire began to take casualties. Told not to use their rifles but to rely on their bayonets (the bullet the fool and the bayonet the hero), the Japanese infantry struggled through the wire and began to overrun the Russian positions.
