    J188 Grab And Go - AAR

    J188 Grab And Go - AAR I selected this scenario because I thought it would be just a big all-infantry slugfest with not much to think about and with mistakes made being able to compensated due to the number of units involved on both sides. With hindsight I have to admit that I underestimated...

    FT230 Italian Behemoth - AAR

    FT230 Italian Behemoth - AAR This scenario was in the offering of GRENADIER 2019, but then I did not have the chance to play it.

    J183 A Real Barn Burner - AAR

    J183 A Real Barn Burner - AAR This one appeared interesting and poplular as well, so I gave it a shot playing the French. The alternating setup makes it a bit fussy to get it started on VASL, but of course this is easily surmountable. Basically, there are some French fanatics holding out in...
