Designer: Gary Fortenberry
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
Men of the 3rd and 6th Burma Rifles were about to experience their baptism of fire. The Japanese were coming. They were coming not from the south, but from the east. British plans for the defence of Burma and Malaya were partly predicated on the ability of the Royal Air Force to maintain air superiority, and to interdict Japanese ship and troop movements. Indeed, until 1941 the RAF was primarily responsible for the defence of the British Far East, with the army relegated to guard duties at air and naval installations. In the Tenasserim district of Burma—a slender strip of land sandwiched between the Andaman Sea and Thailand—priority was given to the construction of aerodromes. The most important landing strips in the district were located at Moulmein, Tavoy, Mergui, and Victoria Point. Generally speaking, roads in the Tenasserim were bad. The only all-weather routes ran north south. Below Moulmein, only intermittent mountain tracks headed east toward Thailand. Even the road from Moulmein to the Burmese frontier post at Miyawadi was interrupted by an 80-kilometre stretch that was reportedly little better than a track. However, Major Oki, commander of the 3rd Battalion, 112th Infantry Regiment was a determined fellow. While the 2/143rd still held Victoria Point, Major Oki and his battalion departed Bangkok on 3 January. The target was the seaside town of Tavoy. The purpose of the tortuous trek was to cut the Tenasserim in two.

2018-06-03(A) jon smith vs british In progressInf gun and shooty japs on the left with main bulk of 447 inf in the centre, 3 mmc on right with a mortar... centre pushed hard and brits fell back, inf gun frightened the brits off the central hill, on the right the mortar smoked a british carrier. Second turn saw 2 jap MMC rush the smoked carrier and destroy it in combat, while the brits shuffled to cover the centre thrust well. Japs shifted to the right and gathered for a charge, but the brits had time to move and cover it so instead the japs deployed into 1/2 mmc and doubled downt he left flank, brits tried to cover this but some MMc got isolated and taken out in HTH. In the end 3 jap half squads and 2 mmc had infiltrated the rear and left of the village, while the brits still surviving were bottled up in stone buildings on the right. With all carriers destroyed Japs were ahead by about 22vp. It had lots of action, WP, smoke, HtH, beserk wounded leaders, 436 mmc going on late game rampage through Jap MMC helped by sniper... good stuff.

2016-10-22(A) Kermit Mullins vs Dan Best British winWell..I guess I'll be the one Japanese Player to let down the cause, as the British spanked me hard in this game. We too were initially confused by the Victory Conditions. Once, I understood them, I had to begin moving very aggressively and so Banzai'd way too much and Dan's British took me out in some very exciting Hand to Hand Melees. Fun game!
2016-08-20(D) Jason Wert vs John Haughey Japanese winNice match with John and tense affair. Setup strong on left flank and used terrain to slow down the IJA. Inflicted good losses, but a timely shot by the INF Gun and failure to rally with leaders left the Brits shorthanded in the final turns.
