In my opinion, the best WWII grand-strategy game system.

As with most of the World in Flames expansions that just add more stuff than rules, I think you should use them all or none of them.

World in Flames alone originally had only corps/army sized land units. Asia Aflame is another expansion that introduces a critical kind of unit to WIF -- divisions and guns. Divisions and guns are useful because you can stack one in addition to the usual two corps per hex. Divisions in particular are useful for invasions, while the different varieties of guns -- artillery, anti-tank guns, and anti-aircraft, in various motorized- and non-motorized guises -- are great fun. It also includes a map of northern Scandinavia, which is okay if you have room but hardly essential.

The name Asia Aflame is archaic - back when this was introduced in WIF5 it included a map that gave more coverage to south Asia. But that expansion map disappeared with the advent of WIFFE, which covers all of Asia except the far frozen tundra in Russia.

This kit came with divisions, which was a must for my WiF games. I think it also introduced Amphibs.

While I find most add-ons to WIF "useless" (the term others have used); I find just the Inf, para, mech, armor, mtn, cav, mar divisions in this expansion add a lot to WIF.
(The arty, assault gun, mini sub, anti tank - counters do seem sort un-historically shoe horned in here. (eg What does a land offensive chit represent if not massed artillery, etc. - so why now have artillery counters?)

We use one house rule: a division is the last casualty in a hex.
We use the amphib optional rule.

Divisions now allow a country an extra unit to hold, say a city hex; allow Japan and USA some flexibility in creating a more fluid situation in the Pacific, etc. The division types I named add a lot to the game.

Artillery is the one element from the expansions that I find really worth including. The Scandinavian map is silly (it takes years for a unit to get back from Murmansk?)

Another "supplement" that really just should have been in the basic game (and eventually was).

I really like the Scandanvian map but the extra counters and rules are added dross.

I thought this was a fairly weak expansion to World in Flames. Added complexity that I wasn't sure was worth it (unlike Planes in Flames)
