For the first time in ages, Schwerpunkt is using graphics in the counters on their scenario cards. I appreciate that a lot. One scenario has a neat photo of Dutch soldiers; one of them has struck a "leader pose".

The SP scenarios are getting shorter whitout getting better. No fresh ideas, that said, I dutiful purchased this one an played some scenarios. My mind hasn't changed. You can live without it.
The article from White is good as usual.
