ASL - other tactical wargames call it Sir.
Beneath this mask there is an idea.....and ideas are bulletproof.
I have a question about the scenario 'A Winter Melee' which originally appeared in 'Cross of Iron' but has been updated to ASL and reprinted in the 'Turning the Tide' scenario pack.

Given that this as a bit of a wild (but fun) scenario with all sorts of units in on the Russian side, is this based on a real historic encounter or is it an imagined/enhanced history battle. Assuming it is based on reality is an account of it written up anywhere?

I would be surprised if it were based on an exact battle. The early scenarios tended to be very loosly based.

Given the rough description of the German forces involved, this reinforces my impression.
