THOSE RAGGED BLOODY HEROES depicts the bloody Pacific Island fighting on the northern coast of New Guinea. Here the Australian 7th Division has pushed the Japanese invader north in the long and bloody Kokoda Trail campaign. During the weeks prior to the battle for Gona, General Horii's defenders toiled long and hard to prepare a defensive ‘death-trap’ that awaited the oncoming—and unsuspecting Australian soldiers. Cleared fire-lanes, log bunkers and Japanese snipers await your men of the Australian 7th Division as you re-fight this tragic and controversial battle.
For the avoidance of doubt, Those Ragged Bloody Heroes is a campaign game that uses (and therefore requires) the Advanced Squad Leader counters and other parts of the system, particularly the Commonwealth and Japanese orders of battle and PTO rules etc.
The package also contains a number of scenarios that cover different phases of the struggle around Gona, to be played on the TRBH map.
