Review LFT11

This is my opinion of issue number 11 of Le Franc Tireur. Your mileage may vary. Overall, while I believe it is a good product, at the same time I feel it is a bit over done and a bit over priced.

I prefer to end with the positive aspects, so I begin with what I did not like. I dislike the articles that I feel belong in club newsletters, rather than in a magazine... Read full review...
FT better than ever
nathan wegener: 10.0 out of 10. [Review score: 4] [Agree] [Disagree]

Best FT yet. FT has grown into a very high quality production material. I loved the Stonne articles - especially the tour of the area and the superimposed map - in fact after hesitating for months it made me pull the trigger on the CH Stonne product. The articles summarizing Gun Duels and Platoon Movement were very well written and helpful.
