Both islands fell very quickly with minimum casualties. I lost one platoon on the flank at Eniwetok to concentrated Japanese counter-attacks.

My campaign in the Marshalls mirrored the rapid success the US Marines, Army and Navy had in the Marshall Islands. Next target – Saipan.

 

The missions continue after the holidays!
