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.


Official scenario by jdrommel for French Open 2010

Axis [Japan]: 4 cards.
Allies [US Marines]: 6 cards, you move first.

Conditions of Victory:
7 Medals.

Special Rules:
Imperial Japanese Army Command rules are in effect (Nations 3 - Imperial Japanese Army).

US Marine Corps Command rules are in effect (Nations 4 - US Marine Corps).

US Marines Artillery is Mobile Artillery (Troops 14 - Mobile Artillery). Note: when ordered by Artillery Bombard may NOT move AND attack.

Mountains in this version for M'44 Online are impassible. In a face-to-face game infantry can move between hills and mountains, the latter providing greater defense. But that is not currently supported in the online game. In 5 games no units moved to mountains, anyway.

Please note that this scenario was not approved by Richard Borg or Days of Wonder, so you have to check yourself about playability, potential gaming issues, etc.
