...so says Robert Leckie in an episode of "The Pacific". After starting yet another attempt at a long campaign, and using "low carnage" settings in my preferences, I believe in it, too. With Inf Toughness set at 150%, and those Japanese launching banzai charges against my outnumbered Marine squads, my ATG, mortar and MG crews are using plenty of ammo.

Are you using all of the LC settings?

Command & control is OFF, and I left Auto Rally ON. Other than that, the ratings are set the same as your guidelines. For a core force of 114 units, I thought it OK to keep micromanagement in place, and even with Auto Rally ON, I still need to restore cohesion manually at the start of each turn. Sorry, but I don't like the C&C rules.

What was interesting is that when my Dad saw the above picture, he said they were still using those 'pigtails' to run c-wire in Vietnam.
