    Starter Kit Scenario 1 "Retaking Vierville"

    Well this was my first game ever. I have to say I had a load of fun but I dread that "hump" where the game may become too complicated and I dont like it anymore. I hope vehicles are not that tough! Whatever we didnt know, we looked up in the ASL Bible! Clearly explained we would figure it...

    Kupyansk - The Trials & Tribulations of 298th Infantry Division

Isolation is also a big one as a unit will become steadily worse. When you look at the victory point screen...
