In August, 1942 U.S. Marines of the 1st Marine Division captured the islands of Tulagi, Gavutu, and Tanambogo among which the Japanese Navy had constructed a naval and seaplane base. The landings were fiercely resisted by the Japanese Navy troops who, heavily outnumbered and outgunned by the Allied forces, fought and died almost to the last man. This ASL campaign game re-creates the taking of these islands.

Sand and Blood: Gavutu-Tanambago was originally including in the ASL Annual ’93b, but is now part of the Rising Sun module.
