Gavutu-Tanambogo, turn 5

Turn 5 saw the last units from the LC's disembark. The Marines were able to finally root out the last squad from the remaining buildings, and technically have won the scenario by the end of turn 5. However, the hill at the back of the island still has a large group of dug-in Japanese defenders. The one hold-out in the Japanese bunker has decided to move back through the jungle to positions on the hill with its MMG. The death toll so far has been tremendous. The Marines have lost 8 squads…

Gavutu-Tanambogo, Turn 4

The Marines have now consolidated on the tip of the island, and are pressing forward to clear and occupy the buildings on the island. On turn 4, there is one building left to clear, but a combined effort roots the Japanese squad from the building. The Japanese small arms and MG fire still takes its toll on the Marines. Next turn the remaining Marines in the landing craft will disembark and aid in the occupation efforts. The photo below is the situation at the end of turn…

Gavutu-Tanambogo, Turn 3

Well, as in war and war games, the tide can turn in a second. The Marines were able to withstand some withering fire from the Japanese entrenched machineguns and small arms fire. They were able to establish a beachead with a couple of worn-down platoons. One squad threw a satchel charge and took out a couple of Japanese squads, while leader-directed MG fire did some damage on some of the forward defenders. More landings will occur on turns 4 and possibly 5. The Marines may be able to secure…

Gavutu-Tanambogo Turn 2

The Marines had a tough time on turn 2. The Japanese with heavy gun fire and well-placed machineguns were able to eliminate 4 Marine squads and a BAR gunner, leaving only one sole NCO to hold the beach. ATS is bloody, but even more so with a beach landing. Hopefully turn 3 will turn out better for the Jarheads.

ATS Gavutu-Tanambogo

I love ASL, and I am really beginning to love ATS. Don't call me a heretic, but I think I like ATS better than ASL. I have converted one of the cooler ASL mini-campaign games to ATS, and am playing it to see what it is like. This mini-campaign came from the ASL Journal 93b. I enlarged the map to accomodate the larger ATS counters. I will post the converted scenarios and campaign game later. Since I have been watching the HBO series Pacific, I have been in a Pacific mood, so I decided to see…
