The Sangshak Redemption CBI (id:#61654)
(ASL Journal #10 ID:J150)
Designer: Andrew Rogers
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
JapaneseBritish / Gurkha
The Battle of Sangshak took place in Manipur in the forested and mountainous frontier area between India and Burma, from 20 March to 26 March 1944. The Japanese drove a parachute brigade (fighting as infantry) from the British Indian Army from its positions with heavy casualties despite numeric superiority in favour of the British, but suffered heavy casualties themselves, and the delay imposed by the battle allowed British and Indian reinforcements to reach the vital position at Kohima before the Japanese.
Attacker: Japanese (58th Infantry Regiment, 31st Division)
Defender: British / Gurkha (Support Company, 152nd Indian Parachute Battalion, 50th Indian Parachute Brigade and Company A, 153rd Gurkha Parachute Battalion, 50th Indian Parachute Brigade)

2016-10-07(A) Michael Rodgers vs Jeff Wasserman British / Gurkha winMy early Banzai got troops into the valuable church, but I over committed the follow-on troops to the CC attacks. The British ATG and MTR took their toll. The British reinforcements eventually pushed my Japanese back out of the church.
2016-08-13(A) Gordon Jupp vs Derek Cox British / Gurkha winGreat little scenario. An inauspicious start, no smoke or WP and a broken mortar in the turn 1 prep was followed by a pretty good banzai BUT I couldn't get any ambushes and in the resulting HtH Derek consistently took my attackers out...I had captured the church by turn 2 but my losses were crippling and I couldn't keep the Gurkhas out, good fun tho!
2014-10-09(D) Andy Beaton vs Dave Ginnard Japanese winASLOK 2014
2014-03-15(A) Russell Dewhurst vs Jim F Japanese winGurkhas resigned after turn 1 Banzai charge
2014-03-15(A) Russell Dewhurst vs Jim F Japanese winI took the village by turn 2 cutting off the routing units thus eliminating all but the guns. The Gurkha reinforcements made more progress, slowed down a little on turn 3, but had a good last two turns' attack-- they didn't take enough buildings back from me mainly because they kept failing PTCs on the last turn. Good scenario in which both sides get to attack, Japanese get to try banzais, and good practice with PTO terrain.
