Historical Background
In 459 BCE, Athens had started to contest the control of the Saronic coast with Corinth, traditionally an Athenian enemy, as a result of a treaty of alliance between Megara and Athens.  Instead of sitting idly by, Athens moved to support Megara by seizing Halieis, a Saronic port within the territory of a Corinthian ally.
Although initially landing at Halieis without resistance, a polyglot force composed of Corinthians, Sicyonians, and Epidaurians soon opposed the invaders in a battle near their landing site.  Although historians disagree as to the outcome of this particular engagement, the Athenians eventually withdrew to their ships, later winning a significant naval battle offshore.
The stage is set. The battle lines are drawn and you are in command. Can you change history?

Swapped the MI for MH, which seemed to work fine and in this instance made no difference to play anyway.
Quite a protracted exchange of missile fire as the lines closed, but once the lines met it was over pretty quick.
