Date: November 21, 1945 - Size, Medium - Location: Southern Kyushu, Japan - Intended for Head to Head or Solo play as either side. For Solo Victory Conditions see the file "J45-Solo-Vic-Cond.pdf" in the main game folder. Narrative: With the linking up of the US forces the next step had been to advance north. Sitting astride the path of their route was the highlands of Mt. Kirishima. The heights had been fortified with trenches. Tunnels connected the positions for ease of movement. The first assault on the heights was a two day operation, made from three directions, which failed miserably in the face of determined Japanese resistance. The armor was unable to assist the defender due to the terraced nature of the terrain. It was an infantry man's hell one that cost the US Army and Marine Corps dearly. Note: the US division artillery is FIXED to depict the difficult of setting it up in the terrain of the area.

Japanese held the hill. Very tough for the U.S.
