Ilu River (Alligator Creek), Guadalcanal, 21 August 1942.

Scenario C - Ichiki Attacks! is the very intense firefight depicted at the end of the first episode of HBO's new series "The Pacific".



Think that Marine captain going fetal in the foxhole was a coward? Try playing this scenario and see how you feel.

BANZAI!

Far from being a "turkey shoot" as described by the assistant gunner at the end, this scenario is a white-knuckler and a great way to get to know the Banzai posture rules once you've had a few shots at earlier scenarios.

Nice find.

The set-up for the battle starts at the 34 minute 43 second mark in that version.

I'm assuming they won't post further episodes.

Christoper, we'll rely on you to keep us up to date on the applicable scenarios!

Did anyone ever go through and line up CC:E scenarios with Band of Brothers?

Is there a scenario where your company is the only company marching every friday night with a full pack in the pitch dark?

E Company vs. Cpt. Sobal.....FIGHT!

I haven't but if anyone wants to, perhaps this (shameless shill of my list) will help (and it's got Pacific, too!).

Is Scenario I close enough to episode 2 to work? Except for the terrain it seems like it would work....
