Balance:
American (USMC)Japanese
Overview:
Although the island of Peleliu had been declared secure on September 30th, about a thousand Japanese remained in an area some 900 yards long by 400 yards wide. In some of the fiercest fighting of the entire Pacific campaign they had repelled in succession the 1st Marines, the 7th Marines, the 321st Infantry, and the 7th Marines again. The terrain in the pocket comprised jagged coral ridges and outcroppings, cut through by natural and man-made caves. Weeks of aerial and naval bombardment had stripped away most of the vegetation. What remained bore a resemblance to the surface of the moon. When the 7th Marines withdrew for the last time, the fresh 5th Marines were called upon to finish the job. . .

2016-12-07(D) Jeremy Busby vs Scott Hasson American (USMC) win
2015-09-06(D) Martí Cabré vs Txema Mainez Japanese winOur first adventure with caves. The rules looked horrible and daunting, but once the game started it was really fluid. You only have to be sure the cave setup is ok, that's important, and the gameplay is quite smooth and easy. With the Japanese I set up a trap using three caves, a pillbox and the mines in the Z3-AA2-BB1-BB3 sector and it worked like a charm. The Marines were stuck there fighting it hard to get out of the crossfire. They eventually killed the Japanese units there but I managed to save a couple of units entering and exiting the cave complex below to stall them even more. Finally, attacking with the DC caves when there were no Japanese units in the cave the Americans sealed four of the caves and secured the first hill, but with only two turns to go and the other caves far in the other hill, with my AT guns still hidden and more Japanese infantry yet to reveal, the Americans conceded the game.
