Hmm, not knowing much of WW2 history, I checked Wikipedia, and it mentions two "Operation Neptune" in WW2... which is it here?

The first Operation Neptune was the naval portion of Operation Overlord

The 2nd was the crossing of river Seine by the British in August 1944 (ding, ding, ding!! )👍

Also curious, I'd think most of the needed counters would be included in the "official" counter mix. Maybe just more of certain items needed?

Why is Forgotten War needed?
ON-8 uses boards 81 and 83 from Forgotten War.

As a non-KWASL participant, I enjoyed seeing that MMP has the individual maps for sale on their website. However, 81 is sold out. Like a recent LFT publication, though, I am not going to lose any sleep over being unable to play one scenario from an otherwise great looking package. Besides, 81 will likely be back in supply eventually.

Not sure if I should get this - way too many HASLs to play, and river crossings are definitely not my favorite situation. OTOH, I like to support producers of quality ASL material.

When does the preorder period end? (I notice the LFT site doesn't list ON yet, but I'm assuming they will eventually distribute it as they do other BFP products)

Most of the action is across the river, so don't be too wary of the river crossing.
