Your Marines must be aggressive to take the ground and build both landing strips within 20 turns.   A large surface fleet naval battle must be won to protect your Marine supply ships.

My primary objective is protecting the Henderson Field airstrip. The four secondary objectives are: raid Tenaru; raid Matanikau; destroy 5 Japanese aircraft and protect both construction groups.
