JapaneseAmerican (USMC)
The leading elements of the elite 2nd "Sendai" Division had arrived on Guadalcanal with same orders as their predecessors -- eliminate the Marine beachhead. With ample manpower, Japanese commanders planned to attack the perimeter from the west and the south. The main effort would be from the south, with the western attack being a diversion. Unlike previous attacks, the Sendai Division would be supported by a company of tanks.
