So far we have had the Op Sheets for both sides presented.
Movement has transpired, and it is now deep into 0200 hour on the 13th. The USMC is warily watching IJA forces advance.
At 0300 HR things get funky!
The USMC, now has some decisions to make. In fact at 0200 they popped fails for units to re task 1Para Bn. It is likely they should have thought about C company of the Raiders swinging in the wind by the log bridge….
The situation becomes markedly worse when the first platoon holding Hill 80 and its attached MG section are over run.
They do erase 2 companies of IJA forces but at heavy cost.
details to follow. The actual losses in this battle for the Marines were very low actually.
