Bolt Action – Aslito Airfield, Saipan

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a Bolt Action game set during the Battle of Saipan.  The scenario was based on the Japanese counterattack on Aslito airfield on the night of 16-17 June 1944 and pitted the 23rd Marine Regiment against the Japanese 118th Infantry Regiment.

After about four hours of play, the Japanese failed to achieve the required victory conditions. As a result, the airfield was held by the Marines.
