Re: Over watch and panzerfausts

(...) I think that the wording in 9.3.2 is wrong, and the "other than" is a typo. I don't think it is a typo, Emilio. See the FAQ on paragraph 9.3.2.

Re: The capture and subsequent rescue of mademoiselle Mireille Masséna - a Sharp Practice AAR

Osprey's "Spanish Guerillas in the Peninsular War" makes a short mention of female Guerillas, but "Little is known about them, although they were sometimes mentioned by observers and in a few memoirs."
