I want to smell the gunpowder and hear the cannons roar in my games even at the operational level.

Hi Lee,

I've happily finished a thorough read of the main rules (leaving the advanced rules for another day) and I must say, they really are solid.

I mean, now knowing a bit about the era and campaign, I can see the words of books and first hand accounts behind the various mechanics, and I'm really excited to give them a go.

The only 2 things remaining that I've found are not errata but they could be included in Section 13 "Playing Downfall" if you like - which of course, is simply a list you've provided as a quick reference of rules differences applicable to that scenario. They are:

1. Mosquito Hunting applies (9.9.2)

2. Follow-up Raids may be flown (10.6)

Otherwise, things look really tight. There's a lot that's scrambled out my head during this reading, but I believe the Play Aids are really robust.

Now to test this baby out solitaire, for a mission. I've got a good hunch it may just work. I'll report how I go. I've got "The Songs and Music of World War II" as background (a top collection of tunes from the Isles it turns out). Now to see where Bomber Harris wants me to fly.

Thanks for this title.
Adam.

Saarbrucken in clear weather with poor visibility. None of the asterisked Gruppen made it into the ready box. Got 3 raids and a split off the Main plotted. Interesting card hands for both sides dealt.
