Designer: Eddie Zeman and Steve Dethlefsen
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
American (USMC)Japanese
Major Jim Crowe had been tasked with continuing the attack along the northeast portion of Betio Island. Before the attack could really begin, however, a major obstacle had to be removed -- a large bombproof emplacement stood directly in front of the avenue of attack. In addition, there was a steel pillbox in this area, as well as a very strong log emplacement. All three positions were mutually supporting with good fields of fire; one could not be taken without being subject to withering fire from the other two.
Attacker: American (USMC) (K Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marines)

2016-02-21(A) Jason Wert vs Michael Daschbach American (USMC) winBrutal match. The Marines have massive FP, but the IJA are tough dislodge. A grind of a scenario
2015-11-28(A) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow Japanese winVASL
2015-11-16(D) Vic Lauterbach vs EVL American (USMC) winNot very interesting for the defender but there are always a few surprises with the Japanese. USMC lost M4 and dozer early on but still won fairly easily
2015-11-14(D) Jeff Waldon vs Will Willow Japanese winVASL
2014-07-27(D) Aaron Sibley vs Jeff Coleman Japanese winVery challenging scenario for both sides. Nowhere to hide for the Japanesse, but very tough defensive terrain. Turning point came when the Dozer was made a burning wreck by the HMG :-)
