'Iron Triangle' Outpost Pork Chop Hill, Korea, 16 April 1953: Following the swirling melees of the night, the morning of 16 April wore on with both sides feeding reinforcements into the meat-grinder of a stalemate. At 1445 hours lieutenant James Barrows, a division public information officer suddenly appeared in Clemons CP with two staff photographers in tow. Barrows' expectations of a routine camera session following a 'successful' American action' were dashed when Clemons told him to forget the pictures and instead carry a message to Battalion. "We must have help or we can't hold the hill." The message was received within the hour but up the chain of command Division was concerned with whether Pork Chop was worth its price in blood, and the consequences of relinquishing the hill. While higher command dithered it would be up to Clemons' depleted King Company to hold the hill. Clemons gathered his men and situated them on a tight knob on the left portion of Pork Chop Hill. Within this isolated perimeter were three bunkers, and nearby shellholes were also used for cover by some of the men. Eventually it dawned on General Trudeau that the defence at Pork Chop Hill was at what military historian SLA Marchall called, "a final strait of desperation." Yet somehow Clemons and his men held out until nightfall while the generals mulled over what to do...
PORK CHOP HILL is a detailed ASLComp variant that tells the story of the Korean War from the battlefield made famous by SLA Marshall and the eponymous Hollywood movie. The action is gripping, the Chicoms are coming... and still coming. Will they ever stop coming? You will decide, while you play it all out again on the enlarged-hex colour map with historical named leader counters.
