Hi!, i'm the captain Ben Cadlwell of New-Zealand force.

I've benn enlisted in january 1937.

My first mission was on may 24 1940,
Image

I have to defend flag wood from japanese
Image
Image

I post the most of my troops near flag wood and Bohol village
Image
Some sqad are on my rigth flank, on misty hill and on hill 138. The gun and the hmg are at the back on toad hill.

the ennemies attack our rigth flank from hill 192
Image

soon after the first ennemies soldier, a TK tank appears.

The ennemies attack in the center, on squirell hill whit a Ha-Go tank and a lot of man. Disater was fast to come, squirell hill was taken soon by ennemies, but our AT rifle destroy the TK. And the remaining man on squirell hill figth until they die, despite the ennemies arty fire. The gun was destroy by the Ha-go. I have not understand why the gun crew don't obey to me when I ask them to fire on the Ha-go and they continue to fire on the rigth flank, where ennemies advance slowly, but surely.

the AT rifle destroy the Ha-go that have enter flag wood and attack the Hq, no losse to report.

The ennemies mortar inflict us great loss. we continue to figth, and ennemies wasn't able to advance trough the hill bareer. They bombard whit arty & mortar Bohol, frome where we shoot a lot of there man, and it been not very effective, in approximaly 10 minutes, we take only 3 losses there. But when they start to fire on flag wood, we take more losses.
after one half hour of intense figth, we see some enemies surrender.

When we decide to send on first line our flametrhower, a bunch of ennemies surrender instanly.

after 35:40 minutes of figth, ennemies finnaly retreat

Size of squads

Your infantry squads are smaller than standard.

What weapons do they have?

I have tried using recon squads a lot in defence, because I can spread them around the map more, to cover more approaches and so they dont get so hammered by artillery.

cheers.

I have created small infantry group, equiped whit only rifles. It's usefull in defenece, and also in offence, like first line men.

Custom Squads

Tiens! I did not look very hard.

This time I see a squad with what looks like a HMG, rifles and SMGs. It is squad 1 so it must be the HQ. If that is placed on the "flag" you have a last-ditch defense which is pretty powerful.

You have mini-squads with HMGs also I see.

Great stuff I shall give them a trial.

Nice keep it going. Just one odd thing I noticed: are you deliberately alternating between fighting in Europe and the Pacific theatre? Seems a bit weird to me.

Hi! it's the private Vance, yesterday, the captain Caldwell have been killed by a mortar fire while defending Market wood from Japanese.

It was 24 april 1940
Image
We have been posted to defend the Market wood
Image
Image
There is a road that pass acros an open field, we decide to defend the wooden hill and kill ennemies in the open field
Image
we divide the company in 3 group of sqad and place a HMG, a AT rifle and a gun whit some of that group
Image
The most dificult place to defend is lubang
Image

after 5 minute of wait, the first ennemy where reperate. they where so much, hopefully, they are in the open field as we think
Image

we start to fire on them. they try to go in teh wood on the left flank, but we continue to kill them, and we use our artillery to bombard them.

at lubang, situation was very hard for the us and for them. The Japanese commender decide to bombard lubang, despite is own man where in the village. the hill was to much rough, so our hmg and our gun have difficulties to help the man in lubang Image
after a moment, we make deplace the Hmg and see
Image
that bunch of ennemies, a lot of them have been killed our injuried by the HMG.
Image
on rose hill, one soldier survive, he kill many japanese man.

After a long moment of shooting, a mortar fire hit the HQ, killing captain Caldwell, so I receive the comandement of the companies.
Image

but after that ennemy start to retreat, we kill many more of them, and they destroy our gun. finally, after 30 minute of battle, we have win
Image

we have win that other batlle despite Japanese where 13 more than us, we inflict to them great loss and hold on objective. The New-Zeland high comendement said that our captain have been the best and he receive many medal post-mortem
Image

I will now replace him, I hope that I will survive to that war.

Well, at least he survived for longer than my Russian commander did. Artillery shell, right on the first mission. Still bad luck with that mortar.
