Merchant of Venice CBI (id:#61644)
(Schwerpunkt #18 ID:SP212)
Designer: Bill Sisler
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
H Force had reached Myitkyina airfield undetected. Colonel Charles N. Hunter set the time for the attack on the airstrip at 1000. Chinese troops from the 1st Battalion, 150th Regiment, 50th Division moved into attack positions southwest end of the airstrip. The 150th Regiment then executed the attack on the airstrip. The Japanese garrison withdrew into positions in the jungle and bamboo groves some distance away. The 150th assault made good progress. The airfield was not strongly defended and the Japanese were caught by surprise. There was sporadic fighting in the separated fields around the airstrip, but the airstrip was in H Forces’s hands by noon. When Colonel Hunter determined that the airstrip was secure, he transmitted the coded message “Merchant of Venice”, indicating that the process of glider-borne supply and reinforcement could begin.
