Introduction:

Crtical Hit module for "Squads and Leaders" (read: Advanced Squad Leader)covering tactical battles during the French Indochina Wars of the mid-1950's. Includes extensive variant rules, 15 scenarios, 4 maps (3 of the 8x22, unmounted, and 1 large historical map) plus a few overlays and a great whack of variant counters depicting PAVN and French (including French Foreign and T'ai irregulars) troops and weapons. **NOTE** Although CH has a printed caveat on the box that ownership of Beyond Valor, Croix de Guerre and West of Alamein are required they FAIL to indicate that mapboards from Gung Ho are also required in order to play a handful of the scenarios.
