Why don't you believe me?
Seriously, I'm a weasel.
The Meat Grinder: The Marines on the right charged against Minami. Their command felt it would be easier to overtake the city than to try and dig out the units entrenched in the hills. Instead of a brilliant tactical maneuver, this proved to be a horribly botched assault as the Allied forces disintegrated against the counterattack. The exact same pattern occurred in the assaults on Hill 382 and Turkey Knob. Japanese high command was giving excellent orders that allowed for maximum attack with almost no chance of retaliation. Despite overwhelming numbers, the Allied forces could not hope to take any of the Japanese positions.

The Meat Grinder: The Marines again charged against Minami. This time they proved a bit more successful, with the flamethrower tank earning the MVP for single handedly eliminating three units before it fell. Feeling a bit cocky, the Marines approached the Amphitheater and Turkey Knob thinking they could continue the success, but the Japanese counterattack proved to be too severe for the Marines to get a quick win. The Marines brought their tanks up for support and managed to prevent the complete collapse of their center. At this point, the Japanese were too severely damaged and they slowly were taken down for an Allied victory.

Sugar Loaf and Half Moon: The name of the game was Allied artillery. The Marines' artillery earned all six medals. Only two other Allied units even move, with only a single attack made by one unit of armor. Within a few turns, the Allied artillery had cleared most of the center. Not sure what the Japanese could do different, as Allied command was providing the perfect set of orders to maintain the barrage. In a desperate attempt, a couple of units pushed out of the hills on Sugar Loaf but were quickly shot to pieces by the artillery.

Sugar Loaf and Half Moon: The Marines tried to use the same artillery barrage strategy, but the attacks did not prove to be as accurate. They ended up charging into an assault on their right flank, that resulted in disastrous losses. They barely managed to overcome the retaliation due to a strong display of air power. The Allied armor was then able to sweep in and finish up a couple of remainders for victory. The Japanese fought very well and were only a couple of turns from victory, but could not face a combined armor and artillery strike.
