Overview:
To demonstrate to the West that the Nationalist Army’s morale was intact, a battalion of the German-trained 88th Division had been fighting off the Japanese 3rd Infantry Division for two days. The site of the Chinese stand was a six-story concrete structure at the south end of Zhabei known as the Sihang (“Four-Bank”) Warehouse, so-called because it was built and jointly operated by four Shanghai banks. Throughout the 27th and 28th the over-strength battalion withstood everything the Japanese could throw at them, while ever-increasing crowds of Chinese and westerners stood on the opposite bank cheering on the defenders. On the 29th, with a Chinese flag now flying atop the warehouse, the “lost battalion” as it was dubbed by the international press, stood firm in its resolve to fight to the death.

2017-04-25(A) Jeff B vs Pierce Mason Japanese winIf I were a betting man who knew that the Japanese would get absolutely no smoke/WP in this one I would lay a mighty large wager on the Chinese. Well good thing I didn't bet the house, because the Chinese seemed to be suffering from either ammunition shortage, lack of marksmanship training, or both. Terrible dice all game made this a rather lopsided defensive struggle for them. Their one chance at glory for a set DC to blow up a hex full of Japanese didn't pan out when that same stack caused it to dud. I believe the Japanese need to try to capture all the buildings to make their job easier in the factory, but in this case I don't think it would've mattered. Chinese threw up the white flag at the end of Turn 3.
2014-09-13(D) Aaron Sibley vs Randy Strader Chinese winGood fun scenario. First time I have played the Chinese. Randy rammed the little tanks into the fortified building to get a breach, but took heavy losses on his infantry and lost all his leaders.
2014-06-22(D) Jesus Pie vs tozesantos Chinese winJapanese forgot one 9-1 leader from his OB, and miss him on the late stages, when was unable to break into the factory. A great game anyway.
