saracen This is not a bad little scenario, if you are willing to overlook the one huge, glaring historical problem. It says that you battle through jungles and capture Japanese villages. The trouble is that there were no jungles or villages on Iwo Jima, just three Japanese air strips, nothing else. The name Iwo Jima means "Sulfur Island", and it is aptly named. It is a volcanic island in the Ogasawara Islands (made famous in the Godzilla movies). The whole island is only 8 sq miles, with virtually no vegetation whatsoever, much less jungles. The soil, such as it is, is mostly volcanic ash. The entire island is less than 5 miles long, and only 0.5 to 2.5 miles wide (only 8 square miles total). During WWII the only thing on the island were three Japanese air strips, no towns, no villages. Today there are still no towns, no villages, and no civilian inhabitants on the island, although it is technically part of the prefecture of Tokyo (some 750 miles to the north). So anyway, the scenario is not bad, but must be considered alternate history (not that, that is a bad thing either).
