Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
JapaneseAmerican (USMC and Army)
Iwo was declared secure on March 14. This was clearly premature, as the Marines suffered an additional 6,000 casualties mopping up, but by March 26, the fighting was long over. By the 26th, exactly five weeks after D-Day on Iwo, the Japanese defence was extinguished. The Fourth Marine Division was already gone, sent back to Maui to try to build a fighting division out of the pieces left after Iwo, The Fifth Marines were almost gone as well. The Third was still at work chasing down stragglers, but Seabees and Army troops would soon take up the task of cleaning up the island and transforming it into a major airbase. There remained not a single identified pocket of resistance. All over the island, night time found the Americans peacefully asleep. The first warning that all was not over came at 0515 hrs, in the form of sudden small arms fire around Motoyama Number Two. Hundreds of Japanese burst through the sleeping camps, catching a mixed bag of Marine shore parties, supply troops, Air Corps crewmen, AA gunners and Seabees completely by surprise.
