    Mabatang, Philippines, 0830 hours, 12 January 1942: The 1st Battalion rode out the initial Japanese offensive facing little action on their front, enabling the unit to provide support for Colonel Fry’s more heavily engaged units. The commander of 1st Platoon, A Company, Second Lieutenant Alexander R. Nininger, led his men through the night, moving from hole to hole, facing nothing more than occasional sniper fire. Nininger, a West Point-trained, 23 year-old, was born to be a warrior and had no intention of letting enemy snipers go unpunished. During the morning of January 12th, Nininger directed his men to fire into the woods’ edge, where he suspected enemy snipers were lurking. He then gathered stragglers from 3rd Battalion, and along with his men headed into the dense vegetation to root out the Japanese. Enemy fire sent Nininger and his men back out of the brush. Undaunted, he ordered his charges to push back, and they attacked again. When the young lieutenant was wounded he continued to encourage his men to move forward, even managing to work his way to the front. The 23 year-old warrior refused evacuation, declined medical help, and went back at it, rallying his soldiers for a third push. This time he personally took the point, throwing hand grenades and killing Japanese soldiers as he inexorably moved ever onward. At about noon on the 12th the valiant lieutenant finally succumbed to his wounds. For his actions 2nd Lieutenant Alexander R. Nininger posthumously received the first Congressional Medal of Honor awarded during World War II. His, he first Medal of Honor awarded during World War 2 was not the first to be won, although Second Lieutenant Alexander R. Nininger was not aware of the distinction nor is it suspected would he have cared.

    We heard what you wanted and here it is AND then some. A brand new edition of the Mabatang Line map with the love it needs (read: the retro graphics that make you feel 'Hill 621-ish' all over again, color-touched scenarios, the counter art you crave) there is exactly zero reasons NOT to do fun and unique things with the resulting games, maps, and more. To that end, we bring you MABATANG LINE 2016, which brings you 8 Bataan scenarios in a new edition of the map using the terrain art you will love. PLUS, while you need modules bringing you Americans and Japanese, as well as the ASLRB, you also get 2 copies of the second printing of the Bataan counter sheet, a combination of 113 ½" counters + 24 5/8" counters on each sheet (a total of 274 color die-cut counters; 137 × 2). You also receive color special rules in 3-hole format!

    NOTE: THIS IS A VERY LIMITED PRINT RUN and as long as you see the page you can reserve your copy. This module ships the week of March 1, 2016.
