OH MY GRODD
guys on another forum I go to are having a debate about this so I figured I might as well post it here too for replies that aren't stupid (i hope)
Not a chance. The British soldiers rush them, the Americans simply cannot kill all of them before they get close combat and get butt-raped by those bayonets.
Of course that is in a real-life scenario. Most people here are too stupid to understand that and think things in a fictional way.
In that case the Americans win after a long day. They lose some from cannon fire early on but they quickly send someone to sabotage them, some more from random shots but they somehow find a valley which they lure the British. They would then blow it up with a combination of grenades, gun powder and lone soldier who is willing to sacrifice himself to set the fuse. Undoubtedly the same soldier would also have a wife back home that's expecting. He was also earlier in the movie found reminiscing over her with a old photo and explaining the protagonist. Before the fuse is blown, a montage is played with the soldier (who originally was a good friend of the protagonist) crying and limping to set the fuse (undoubtedly he was shot in the leg earlier by a platoon before he quickly dispatched them soon after with his rifle, rifle butt, martial arts (lol) and clever use of granades).
Just as the remaining American run off to minimum safe distance, the valley collapses which kills all the British soldiers, leaving the Americans to make a few jokes before limping off into the sunset. However this is just before a rescue chopper they called for in the first part of the media arrives over the sunset and everyone is happy again, completely forgetting of all the lives lost.
Too bad there's only a hundred here.
Damn that Naraku. The vile hanyou had fooled this Sesshoumaru into seeing 1000, not 100.
Still, the odds are in the Marines favor in both fire-power, tactics and the type of warfare the British utilize during those times. When faced with a technologically inferior enemy who outstretches your allies in numbers, the idea is to attack the head of the snake.
Two platoons of infantry (90 Marines) and a Recon squad (10 Marines). Two of the Recon Marines are scout snipers.
