Bailey's Bridge PTO (id:#63917)
(ASL Starter Kit #4 ID:S66)
Designer: Adaptation by Perry Cocke
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
American (USMC)Japanese
The Marines planned a three-pronged attack against the Japanese forces on the western bank of the Matanikau River. The 1st Raider Battalion would cross the river at a small footbridge upstream and attack from the south while elements of the 5th Marines attacked at the river's mouth. Meanwhile, half of Chesty Puller's 1st Battalion, 7th Marines would land west of the river to encircle the defenders. Unbeknownst to the Raiders, however, the Japanese had crossed the river at the footbridge and set up on the eastern side. As the Marines surveyed the terrain leading to the bridge, machine gun fire rang out. The opening burst cut down the well-liked Major Kenneth Bailey, who would soon be awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions earlier at Bloody Ridge. Having realized that the Japanese were on the eastern bank, the Raiders tried to attack through them. . .

2020-02-06(A) Martí Cabré vs Solo Japanese winJapanese quickly dispatched mortars and mg on the other side of the Matanikau from where they harrassed raiders that exited the deep jungle. Scattered Japanese squads in the jungle were quickly killed by raiders but that slowed them a lot, including the bamboo bottlneck, where the Japanese made the last stand. With many losses for both sides in hand to hand combat, the Japanese managed to block the footbridge with a squad on their last turn, achieving victory.

2019-08-01(A) O Ramaille vs American (USMC) winDespite heavy losses in the jungle from hidden Japaneses, Major Bailey's men paid them back in full. The surviving raiders crossed the bridge without anymore constraints. With more than one third of their force on the other side of the Matanikau river, the USMS got a full victory.
