ASL Map Spotlight: Purple Heart Draw
Purple Heart Draw, as it was called, ran for 750 yards east to west along the battalion front, only 200 to 400 yards from the line of departure. It was deep enough to be almost impassable for tanks, and so well covered by enemy fires as to promise heavy losses for infantry who tried to cross.
ASL Map Spotlight: Omaha Beach
Omaha Beach was one of five beach landing sectors designated for the amphibious assault component of operation Overlord during the Second World War. On June 6, 1944, the Allies invaded German-occupied France with the Normandy landings.

ASL AAR: Le Manoir (13)
The bridge at La Fiere carried the road from Ste. Mere-Eglise across the Merderet River and was the main objective of the 101st Airborne’s 1st Battalion, 505th Regiment. After a successful drop, they set off for their objective a mere 1,000 yards away – only to be met with machine gun fire from a farm on the outskirts of town.
First Wave at Omaha Unboxing
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.
ASL AAR: Cat’s Kill (G21)
The date is June 8, just after D-Day. The Canadians occupy a town of mostly stone buildings, spread across one and a half of two boards (10 and 20). The map represents the town of Bretteville L’Orguilleuse outside of Caen.
ASL AAR: Steutzpunkt Vierville (CH4)
One of ASL’s attractions to me is its historical relationship with WW2. I’ve read a lot of books about WW2 and of course, D-Day is one of the big moments in the war. I was able to visit the five beaches of that battle and see lots of artifacts from that time.
