Well, after reading the scenario, I thought this would be murder, boy was I right! We had two US players with some sixteen units and eight Japanese units defending. After eight turns of fighting - the actual scenario if for ten - we had almost all our Marines shot up and the assault withered down. But it was not the fault of the scenario, we just didn't have our tactics right. We made critical mistakes and didn't realize the essence of this scenario. The scenario is actually good, as most Warlords ones are. There's nice tactical consideration for defender how to divide troops along the three lines. Attacker has to be careful to bring two waves in right. And after all it was good and fun game, though it ended US total loss. So we definitely will be including this in our Tarawa campaign, which I'm currently putting together.
Here's some shots from our carnage.

|This was taken by the US MArines and it was the only one.|
|The Marines return fire.|
|Sniper and spotter, clever base conversion or what?|
|And finally Japanese repelled the attack.|
