I'm pretty short sighted and didn't realise until my recent purchase of Line of Fire 10 that hero Bragg is actually American. Due to his grey counter I thought he was German. I'm sad to say that he's probably fought for the wrong side once or twice though, to be fair, he has spent over a year sharing a chessex tray with the squareheads so they've probably turned him.

So, why was an American infantryman included in HotB?

Dunno, why was 'The Rat Patrol' about Yanks. Total mystery.

Hi

We inclued Bragg in HotB just for fun. There was a free space to fill.

LnLP thought about a Pacific module so it was a little teasing with this marine heroes, enven if background color for marines has changed since.

Bye

I recall Bragg was put in the HotB countersheet just to see if people would notice it and ask about it. All in good fun. When I designed "No Wine for the Boches" for LoF#10 I decided to give him a run-out, so to speak, as a downed American volunteer airman with the RAF. I hope you played and enjoyed the scenario; it's a fun little ambush with a good bit of variability.

I played the scenario and found it very cinematic. Sadly Bragg has now been charged with aiding the enemy - a capital offence I'm sure you realise - after fighting with the Germans for a good year and a half.

Surely Bragg is a deeply conflicted Hero.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the scenario.
