1. He produces a great game that everybody raves about so, instead of waiting until pay day, I have to buy it now

2. It costs me even more because although second class mail is FREE, I have to have it sent first class. I can't wait.

2. I'm not sure I'm going to bother buying another Eastern Front game. There are lots of other EF games out that, some of them are probably amazing but I'm going to look at my copy of 'No Retreat' and say - got this one covered...

Darn. I had some more I want to design on that specific topic! Including a "PanzerBlitz" remake and some East-Front operational smaller-scale games: No dice, no odds-based or deferential combat tables. In fact no combat tables at all! So very fast to play, but I'll strive to make those as realistic as possible.

I'll try to start the series next year but no promizes, I just don't have enough time to devote to this hobby. Sorry soblue

First on my list:

- The Air Assault on Crete, 1941.
- The battle for Velikie Luki, USSR, 1942-43.

Crete would be immense. I haven't found a game that's really inspired me on this topic. Just give my wallet some time to recover.

I can't wait to see what you do with the invasion of France, Carl.

I hope you can make it fun and relatively historical without blatant railroading for the Allied player in other offerings.

The playtest is almost finished, and This was my goal. I think you will be pretty happy with the end result.

This was a hard-fought campaign. Per division per day the Germans proportionally suffered as many casualties as in The first 6 months in Russia. Not a cakewalk!
