General information on Critical Hit Magazine can be found here.
This issue celebrates the 10th anniversary of Critical Hit Magazine and its articles and scenarios are essentially a “greatest hits” compilation. For that reason, the issue may not be of too much interest to veterans (save that some of the scenarios have been slightly updated or corrected), but will be of more interest to newer ASLers trying to get their hands on some of the classic scenarios that have been printed in Critical Hit Magazine over the years. Also included are reprints of two other scenarios, one of them a classic (Brandenburger Bridge, designed by Dave Lamb), that had not previously appeared in the magazine but appeared in Critical Hit scenario packs.
The reprint scenarios include:
- CH41a (Test of Nerves), France 1944 (British vs. Germans)
- CH35a (Obong-Ni), South Korea 1950 (Americans vs. North Koreans)
- RP5a (Brandenburger Bridge), Soviet Union 1941 (Soviets vs. Germans)
