Chesty Puller must be spinning in his grave, thanks to this third “Leatherneck” scenario pack. The first two, appropriately, presented U.S. Marine Corps actions, but this ostensible sequel features only a single scenario sporting gyrenes.
The other seven scenarios depict a variety of U.S. Army actions in the PTO, most featuring the 77th and 96th Infantry Divisions. Actions include: Okinawa and vicinity 1945 (Americans vs. Japanese ), Philippines 1941 (Filipinos vs. Japanese), Iwo Jima 1945 (Americans vs. Japanese).
LN3-3 (Aka Assault) is a Seaborne Assault. Most of the scenarios feature caves, extensive fortifications, amphibious rules, NOBA, Night rules or other complex rules.
Like its predecessors, though, Leatherneck III tends to feature larger scenarios with complex rules, which account for its relative unpopularity. Its scenarios are just not that apealling.
