Designer: Pat Jonke
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
On Leyte in the Philippines, the U.S. 32nd Infantry Regiment seized the town of Dumulaan with ease. Several days later they received news that a large Japanese force was moving toward them. One battalion supported by artillery was to hold the point of the advance – the ridge separating the Palunas and Bucan rivers. The GIs called it “Shoestring Ridge" due to the meager force holding this vital piece of ground. On November 23rd the Japanese began a series of intense night assaults along the ridge, and by the evening of the 24th the defenders' situation was becoming desperate.
