I am happy to announce that the revised All American campaign is now complete and up on Wargame Vault! Some of the new things included are wildcards, revised scenario and campaign rules, custom patrol markers, pre-generated character names, and new color photos featuring my miniatures in action. I hope you enjoy this campaign as much as I did writing it!

Have just finished playing it - those cute little captured tanks lost me several games as the German - till I learned to leave them off the table!!

Thanks everyone!

Yes those tanks can be a boon or a bust for this campaign. During our run through they worked best when well away from the Airborne positions and hosing them down with MG and HE fire. The French tanks are surprisingly sturdy, even more so than the Panzer III, but one or two bazooka rounds usually does them in. The tanks were especially vulnerable in scenarios 2 and 3, I lost one in each and had to replay those scenarios when I did.

Yes scenario 3 I did 3 times - there is no where to hide the tanks!
I the third run through I kept one off table and the other one sat at the back and shot HE of all things - the US rolled terribly against it and he ended up killing 3 paratroopers over 4 phases and the zookas missed 3 times!

That nearly turned the whole campaign around - but the Germans still lost on table 4 as some muppet (ahem :oops: ) decided to double bluff and bring a Panzer III ......boom! ;)
