Back to the steamy jungles of the PTO … and A Quick Strike is a good one. It’s amazing how the ASL Pacific Theater terrain tweaks and Japanese nationality can give such a complex game system a completely different feel.
In the 10th Boot Camp I show you the four important points of routing and go through some examples using German and Russian units. I cover rout principles and what you can do with your units after their morale breaks.
Multi-Man Publishing has put Yanks up for preorder. This printing is essentially identical to the 2016 printing, so it is basically a straight re-print.

John and I played Journal 12’s J187 In Deadly Combat from the deadly designers Mazzei & Struiff. This one has a horde of Russians with T-28s attacking the poor Germans defending a village in December 1941
Rising Sun is Advanced Squad Leader’s long-awaited return to the jungles, islands, and atolls of the southwest Pacific. Multi-Man Publishing has combined the original ASL modules Code of Bushido (1990) and Gung Ho! (1991) and reprinted them in one monster package.

First Wave at Omaha (1st Edition, 2009) brings the fury of Bloody Omaha to players in the most massive historical module yet published. This game is a historical module for the Advanced Squad Leader system.
In the 9th Boot Camp I re-iterate the Defensive Fire Principles outlined in Boot Camp #8 showing more movement and fire examples.
