It was and is! Cpt. Hellcat did a GREAT job. It came down to the very end; it turned out to be a tie actually. On the left flank, after being forced to stop while my Japs stuffed themselves, I was able to break through and get a couple units up to the objective in the NW. Meanwhile, a couple units of the Raiders managed to survive and be adjacent to the objective on the hill. I would play this again in a heartbeat!
