Rostov, Russia, July 24th 1942: Well boys and girls, it has been a long time since we have published an ASL Extra. We present, for your listening pleasure, scenario ASL 131 The Penetration of Rostov (previously known as A17, from an edition of the Annual). Selected because it is a scenario from Beyond Valor and owned by many listener's, this one provides chills and thrills, INF Guns, Molotov's and the NKVD. Join us as Mark's Germans attack Dave T's Russians while Dave K provides some neutral commentary. Will the defense of Rostov hold in the face of the German onslaught? Listen to find out.
After listening to this episode you will no longer have to be afraid of the dark. We venture into the night to light the way for our listeners. This is the first of a two part series on the Night rules, found in chapter E, that made their first appearance way back with the original release of Yanks. We infiltrate the first half of the rules and then present a History Report on the various WWII combatants doctrine on night operations. We realize the format for the history report is a bit dull with just Dave reading it and we promise to do it differently next time.
