Now that I see the card again, it is clear that the asterisk refers to the pictured Luftwaffe unit with no strength indication so it means the first.
And what a game this is! In my opinion it is the most dramatic of the SoS series. Congratulations indeed!!
Considering the number of outstanding titles in the States of Siege series, that's high praise indeed. Thank You!
I managed to elicit a draw today, Rommel was east of El Alamein, but already I consider this a modest success on my part.
I too feel good when I obtain a Draw - the game was designed to be very challenging.
Hope that you can enjoy repeated contests, and I'll look forward to any other questions or comments that you may have...
