The demo begins on August 22nd, 1942, on the island of Guadalcanal. The crew of a B17 has reported that the Japanese are constructing an airstrip to block the Allied path to Tokyo. As Tommy Conlin you are part of the 1st Marine Division. With your fellow Marines, you attack the resistance at the airfield. Although supplies and reinforcements necessary to capture the island were said to be on their way...the supplies never arrive. You now find yourself without supplies and surrounded.
