There are problems with this scenario: it cannot be set-up using the standard terrain tiles of Memoir '44 and the selected extensions. There are too many terrains of one or more types. Please contact the author.

Historical Background:
On the 15th of September 1944, the 1st Marine Division landed on Peleliu in the Palaus Islands. In the afternoon, the Marines reached the airfield. At that time,the Japanese launched their counter-attack with infantry and tanks. In spite of the surprise of the attack, the Marines succeeded to destroy most of the enemy tanks and to stop the counter-attack. In the evening, the airfield was controlled but the Japanese had withdrawn in the caves of Umurbrogol Mount. Another fierce battle had to begin.
The stage is set, the battle lines are drawn, and you are in command. The rest is history.
