Salutations all!

The summer wears on, and we approach the 75th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War. What can we do when we're not outside enjoying the sun? Play ASL, of course! Thankfully we have VASL, GameSquad, Discord, and other wonderful online tools so we can continue to socialize as a community while we fight our own war against COVID-19.

Time: Whenever you please
Location: VASL, BGG, GS, Discord-- wherever we happen to congregate online

The period between VE Day and VJ Day yields an unusual selection of scenarios. The fighting on Okinawa was mostly over by this point, and most of the fighting in the Pacific was being carried on by British and Commonweath forces in Southeast Asia, modern day Indonesia, and Bougainville. And then on August 9, 1945, the Soviet Union entered the war and pushed into Manchuria and Korea.

August 1940 and 1945 are a bit strange where anniversaries are concerned. Options include Soviet-Japanese actions in Manchuria, and a British-Italian fight in East Africa.
