Post-Battle Analysis:

On the previous mission I concentrated my forces which slowed my advance and ensured I did not complete most secondary objectives. This time I split my forces. The North Mono landing of two Marine units was destroyed. I achieved my major victory conditions at the cost of two core Marine Units. Splitting forces is risky.

The campaign continues in a few weeks…
