Episode 218: LFT 14 and the Italians

Add caption
Greetings Brothers of the ASL Rule Book, We hope you are doing well and that you will enjoy the wonderful opening song performed 100% (and we mean it when we say it this time) by Jeff Hallett.  We remind our listeners of our contest to win Arnhem: The Third Bridge by Critical Hit.  Enter by April first, and no, we are not fooling. The majority of this effort centers on Le Franc Tireur's newest magazine, issue #14.  Inside you will find the history of the Italians in WWII and in ASL.  It includes a full set of Italian counters with additional paratroops as well as many scenarios.  In the What's in the Box portion of the show, And Dave discusses ASL Scenario SV3 Absolute Markajarvi.

Episode 217: Axis and Arnhem

Interesting listeners want to know.  Is it Dave and Jeff, or Jeff and Dave? Well everyone knows that these things are done alphabetically.  That would make Dave and Jeff  the official way of addressing the hosts of The Two Half-Squads, the one and only podcast dedicated 100% to the greatest game in the world: Advanced Squad Leader.

In this episode lot's o' lovely letters from our lucky listeners cover such topics as tournament announcements and other things of ASL interest. We review Arnhem: The Third Bridge by Critical Hit and offer it up as the perfect prize in for our newest contest. To win this CH product simply send us an email with "Dave and Jeff" in the subject line, or "Jeff and Dave", but putting "Dave and Jeff" will get you entered into the contest TWICE. You will need to pay part of the shipping unless you live in the continental U.S.

Our What's in the Box segment also includes a look at Broken Ground Design's full compliment of full color Axis Minor counters for use with Advanced Squad Leader.
