The pictures above and below shows the layout. The Japanese and British landed on the docks and had to capture the buildings so they have a place to launch their assault on the heights. (Next Game) The Germans put up a stout defense!

An allied force of Japanese and British arrived in September 1914 to lay siege on the port city.
The Germans had a unit in the forward farm near the fountain. They also had a unit in the woods to the left. The Germans defending the buildings sent a unit out to meet the attackers in the woods to the right. I thought it was going to be a disaster, but it ended up being a great strategy. Of course, another great "strategy" was the German heavy mortar hitting 9 out of 10 shots (needing a 6). It was devastating.

The Germans were able to hold the buildings and secure a victory!!
It is the morning of November 7th, 1914, when an allied force of Japanese and British hope that last night's battle went well
More to come.
