(ASL Journal # 9 ID:J131)
Designer: Darrell Andersen
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
American (USMC)Japanese
Company L of the 7th Marine Regiment was the left anchor of the Marines’ swing to the southeast to flank the Japanese defenders of Hill 600 and Borgen Bay. “Love” Company was the first to stumble upon a small stream that was unmarked on the maps issued for the attack. As the Marines climbed through the fallen trees and into the muddy stream, the far bank erupted with a heavy volume of machine gun and small arms fire. The area was heavily fortified, and Col. Katayama of the 141st Infantry Regiment had chosen this small stream to begin his defense of the western end of New Britain.

2014-11-22(A) Raoul Duke vs TY American (USMC) winLots of fun. A very messy struggle through terrible terrain and worse weather. Came down to a two turn long melee in and around a Japanese pillbox. The scenario probably favors the Americans-- I'd give the Japanese the balance if I were to play it again.
2014-03-08(D) mark watson vs Andy Beaton American (USMC) winBetter run through this time. Japanese MMGs and HMG broke at first use, which did not help. Nice little scenario, lots happening.
2014-02-16(A) Jeff Coleman vs AaronS Japanese win
