Playing this scenario solo is probably not the the optimal way to tackle this tactical situation. On the other hand I want to try a variant of the SASL rules. I use red counters to mark possible hotspots. When German units come close I check for units and draw from a pile of counters from the US order of battle. Once US units are placed on the board I will use them at my discretion.
Living at Aachen I have ready access to some of the most famous battle grounds of WW2. One is the Hürtgen Forest only 45 minutes from here by car. Thus BFP’s publication OBJECTIVE: SCHMIDT is a must for the ASL gamer in me. Here I will start off with a solo-play of the first scenario, a small all infantry scenario that will introduce me to the SSR and the terrain.
