1st Edition: 8 scenarios on cardstock
2nd Edition: 8 scenarios on cardstockCommentary:
The third set of scenarios reprinted from the European ASL News magazine (and the occasional ringer from the U.S. newsletter On All Fronts), this pack concentrates on late war actions in all theaters.
Actions include Ukraine 1944 (Soviets vs. Germans ); Normandy 1944 (Americans vs. Germans); Romania 1944 (Romanians vs. Germans); Poland 1944 (Soviets vs. Germans); Netherlands 1944 (British vs. Germans); Philippines 1944 (Americans vs. Japanese); and Germany 1945 (Canadians vs. Germans)
EP44 (Cornered Tigers) is a DASL scenario. The scenarios are not often played; the best of the bunch might be EP44 (Cornered Tigers).
In the review copy, scenario cards had copyright dates of both 1998 and 2003; it is not clear what, if any, changes were made in the 2003 printing.
This is a fairly forgettable offering.
2nd Edition (Euro 3: Search and Destroy) Comments: In the brave new world of 2020, Critical Hit released a new version of this ancient product under a different name. Desperation Morale has not examined this product, but it is likely some of the scenarios have been tweaked.
