Boards 42 and 43 - the newest geomorphic mapboards for wargaming's best tactical-level World War II simulation - are the centerpieces of this latest innovation for the ASL game system: the ASL Action Pack. Designed to get you right into the action, these Packs consist of boards and scenarios that further expand the ASL game system without requiring new rules sections.

Board 42 depicts a small village crossroads: stone buildings, walls, hedges, and orchards are complimented by ponds, grainfields, and woods.
Board 43 has the feel of a farm compound surrounded by large grain fields; the open terrain is sure to provide great fields of fire for your marauding armor.

Eight new scenarios were specifically designed for use with these new boards. The actions in these battles span the length of the war-from 1939 to 1945-and the length of Europe-from Poland to Sicily, from Russia to France. Also included in the package is a color-coded flow chart to help you through the somewhat complicated OBA section of Chapter C.

ASL Action Pack #1 is not a complete game. Ownership of ASL, Beyond Valor, Yanks, and The Last Hurrah is required. Additionally, one of the eight scenarios requires the Italians (Hollow Legions) and board 10 (Partisan), one requires the Japanese (Code of Bushido), and one requires board 38 (Gung Ho).
