Brigade Hill PTO (id:#60785)
(ASL Journal # 8 ID:J116)
See Also: Brigade Hill by Break Contact
Designer: Murray McCloskey
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Following a valiant defence of Isurava Village in late August, the Australians withdrew south, relentlessly pursued by the Japanese. The Japanese Nankai Shitai (South Seas Force) under the command of Major General Horii, were eager to inflict a devastating defeat on the Australians. Isurava had hurt Maroubra Force, but it was not broken. Brigade Hill is an impressive mountain ridge roughly halfway along the Kokoda Trail. Mission Ridge extends from its north face like a nose. The eastern face is very steep whilst the western face is only slightly less so as it drops down to the Fagume River. It was here that Brigadier Arnold Potts, Commander of Maroubra Force, was ordered to stand and fight the advancing Japanese.
Attacker: Australian (2/14th and 2/16th Battalions, 21st Brigade)
Defender: Japanese (South Seas Detachment)

2017-05-31(A) Jason Wert vs Gary Bartlett Japanese winOutstanding scenario with Gary and real fun to play setup and conditions. High recommend with multiple options for the attack. The lead hill cost the Aussies many casualties, but the second hill would be the defeat after two costly infiltrations on CC.
2016-04-17(A) Jim Kloss vs Bob Eury Japanese win
2014-09-03(A) Davide Bendazzi vs Roberto Alesse Australian win
2014-08-29(A) Pieter Van Innis vs Sam Henze Japanese win
2013-10-06(D) Andy Beaton vs Richard Hooks Japanese winAustralians kept getting pushed off the big hill by mg fire from across the valley, and took one hill from the flank but lost it again to a Japanese counterattack. I did very well on the Japanese ambush rolls throughout.
