MMP's website says Beyond Valor contains mapboards 1-5. The Paratrooper module says it requires "boards 1 and 3 of Squad Leader." Are boards 1 and 3 in Beyond Valor the same thing? Basically, will having Beyond Valor let you play all the Paratrooper scenarios?
Yes, the boards are the same. I believe in the new edition of Beyond Valour, the boards are now the thinner boards similar to the starter kits. The old Beyond Valour(s?) had the mounted mapboard style.
