SEE Misc file below for scenario. . . The Battle for Imphal had started very well for the Japanese. Catching the Allied forces off guard, the initial attack looked as if it would repeat the victories of 1942, when isolated allied forces retreated in disorder when encircled. Once again the 17th Indian Infantry Division was cut off; this time, however, order prevailed and the division began an orderly retreat back to Imphal, destroying the road behind them. At one point along the Tiddim road, a key height, part of a saddle, overlooked a bridge over which the division was retreating. The night before, the Gurkhas, under threat of attack were mistakenly ordered to give up their positions, but they were retaken the next day. That night, a substantial Japanese attack developed.
