Michael said it well! No need to add more.We've had multiple discussions on this. My answer is simple - any war in which the armies involved used the squad as the basic unit of maneuver. That includes the First World War from about 1916 onwards (before that, the company was the basic unit of maneuver, with some exceptions).
Given that all armies after 1945 adopted the squad, I think any conflict is fair game after the war, though perhaps the half squad needs to be increased in capability and firepower to reflect tactical training and lower level leadership - the Strategic Corporal that General Krulak talked about. I keep telling my bosses in the Militia that I am one, and I think they are starting to believe me.
I'm not interested in anything tactical but WWII. Even if at squad and single man/vehicle level I like WWII subject only. And, BTW, Spanish civil War (and Japanese-Chinese conflict pre-1939) belong to WWII according the definition of WWII I agree more.This poll is an attempt to gage your interest in playing ASL to simulate periods outside of WWII:
- Any war with bullets
- pre-1939 (e.g. Spanish Civil War)
- 1939-1945 only
- Korean War
- Vietnam War
