Bloody Ridge

Turning Point on Guadalcanal, September 1942

Screenshot of a game of Bloody Ridge in progress.

Bloody Ridge is a simulation of the attempt by Japanese forces to retake the airfield at Lunga Roads, Guadalcanal, after the unopposed occupa�tion of that field by U.S. Marines. The Marines were dependent upon control of the air, afforded by the airfield, for continued supply and reinforcement. The Japanese, who controlled the seas surrounding Guadalcanal, could have isolated and prevented the evacuation of the Marines had the airfield fallen into their hands.
