Japanese lands troops in Guadalcanal.
Then swiftly moves its fleet out of harms way.
The US sends one ship (LS) back to gather resources.
The rest power on to make an amphibious assault against the tough Japs.
The Japs take 3 Battle chits per ’round’ the US 1.
the 164th is battered on the beach and depleted. US air does no good, but a ‘willful ‘ attack by the Japs does the trick punishing the Americans.
The 2nd landing regiment is also depleted by another fierce attack.
It looks like I got things out of order – fear not all is well.
However the US forces suffer a DG and RETREAT to the ships!
With just one regiment fighting for its life on the beaches, the US soldiers marshal themselves and attack, both sides roll.
The Japs suffer a DG. The US rolls a 1!
The Japanese retreat. Victory for the US.
