Overview:
In July 1937, Beijing was surrounded by Japanese-controlled territory. Only the southern road with the ancient Marco Polo Bridge was still free of the enemy. If this last of the Beijing approaches fell into Japanese hands, the whole city would be lost. Japanese troops were stationed on the eastern side of the bridge and the Chinese on the western side. - - - - In this 5-turn scenario, Japanese infantry and tankettes slug it out with Chinese infantry and a lone armored car. The Japanese try to put themselves in the best situation possible before the inevitable negotiations begin by controlling as large a bridgehead and capturing as many prisoners as possible.

2016-10-26(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Brandon B. Japanese winGood fun. A bit tedious with the Japanese trying to take prisoners at every turn, but a very interesting scenario.
2016-10-11(A) Tom Abromaitis vs Chinese win
2016-04-25(A) Gordon Jupp vs Stuart Brant Japanese winVASL. Interesting game. I was able to take a couple of extra squads prisoner and cleared the central buildings out, but lost an AFV to make it closer towards the end...
2015-11-28(D) Jim Kloss vs Bob Eury Japanese winVery interesting, pre-'no quarter' battle, although the Chinese are handicapped by the low leader to MMC ratio. A good introductory scenario for learning to play the Japanese.
