Hell uses the
popular Fire & Movement system (DG Folio Series) to examine two
different situations in Burma during World War II: Operation
Thursday and The Battle of the
Admin Box. Operation Thursday simulates the British
gliderborne assault into Burma in March 1944, after Gen. Slim ordered Gen.
Wingate to land behind the Japanese lines to support the Allied offensive in
Burma, particularly Gen. Stilwell’s advance to the strategic town of Myitkyina.
The Battle of the Admin Box
is a simulation of the Japanese infiltration that surrounded the Indian 7th Infantry Division, and
was also moving to trap the Indian 5th
Infantry Division in order to annihilate both before the arrival of the
Indian 26th and British 36th Divisions from the north.
Holding up the entire Japanese plan was the headquarters area of the Indian 7th Division, which formed a
defensive perimeter known as the “Admin Box” in the village of Sinzweya.
