We are very pleased to have Cleetus and Bob return for more Advanced Squad Leader fun and mayhem. It's amazing how many of the letters we receive lead to such interesting discussions. You can find out for yourself in our Letters segment. We take an in depth look at the ASL Annual '89. Thought we could review all of them, so why not start at the very beginning? It's a very good place to start. We end by covering the Trip Flare rules. Watch your step!

It's a simple show, from some simple gents, with simple minds. There's a little bit of chatter to get us started, then we are off to the races with another batch of letters. Jeff presents a report on the death of Nadezhda Popova. She was one of the Night Witches (some spell it Nightwitches) of the Soviet Air Force. We continue with the Pacific preparation mode that we have been in lately, as we take a look at Bret Hildebran's very nice article called, The Art of the Banzai,from Journal #9.....#9......#9.....#9......
