Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
American (USMC)Japanese
The defense on Lunga Ridge had been severely stretched, but it had not broken and had extracted a heavy toll on the attacking Japanese troops. General Vandergrift committed the Marine reserves and ordered a counterattack to disrupt Japanese efforts at renewing their assault. The 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, moving alongside the road leading to center of the Marine defensive positions, ran into an enemy force squarely astride their axis of advance.
