The Belgian Army list for 1940 has taken a bit of time, largely due to my odd mix of schoolboy languages proving inadequate as some of the technical expressions in the manuals were, to say the least, confusing. In the end I was very grateful to friends from Belgium and the Netherlands for their great help in the translation work. Thanks lads!
And What an interesting force the Belgians turned out to be! Large sections, somewhat undergunned, but with a great emphasis on marksmanship in the defence and speedy, remorseless fire and movement in the advance. Indeed their manual looks remarkably modern to the 21st century reader. As a result of a four section arrangement, and their own platoon battery of grenade launchers, the Belgians are a high value force, but with a couple of very nice quirks that make them very interesting to game with.
