Historical Background:
On July 21, 1944, the Marines set foot on Guam, as part of Operation Forager. The 3rd Marine Division lands on Asan Beach, north of the Orote peninsula, while the 1st Marine Division lands south, opposite the town of Agat. The fighting is brutal: the Japanese have fortified the coast, including Point Gaan, now riddled with bunkers. By late afternoon, despite repeated Japanese counter-attacks, the Marines have managed to establish a beachhead about two kilometers deep.

The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
