Hollow Legions brings the Italians to the world of ASL, including a wide mix of squad types and AFVs. The boards included with the module expand the range of desert terrain, but the scenarios include a variety of actions with Italians on a number of different fronts. Overall, Italians are represented well in ASL, with the exception of their elite troops, who are probably under-rated (the Italian Alpini units were pretty elite).
The 2nd Edition, published by MMP, is essentially the same as the first, except that the text font in the Chapter H pages is slightly larger than in the original version.
