Scenario 3: part 3
With the village to his right all but in Baker's hands, Capt Liberto decides to push onto the next objective. A sudden banzai like attack on Liberto's column throws his armor led recon back. The Japanese platoon then turns south and makes an attempt to reinforce Baker Company's target. Unswayed, Able takes the objective, cutting off the Japanese trapped on the point.
Baker Company storms the village on the second attempt and wipes out two platoons retreating over the beaches.
Things seem to be winding down, when a number of Japanese platoons charge out of the forest, threatening several mortar positions. Charlie Company, strung out in order to cover so much territory between Able and the Lunga River, calls in the HMGs which had been covering Baker's approach. With their help, and several lucky artillery barrages, the attackers are cut to pieces before they can infiltrate Charlie's lines.
There is another objective further up the coast and Enright, true to form, orders Able to push on. Before they can get anywhere, Japanese artillery, from the objective itself, rains down on the lead elements, taking out an entire squad.
Allied Major Victory!
