Written by gamers for gamers, Line of Fire #2 has the reader’s satisfaction in its crosshairs. Contributors to this issue include Robert Herzner on infantry tactics in LnL; Arrigo Valicogna on the Bundeswehr in Death of the First Panzer; new LoF editor Jeff Lewis on the Pakistanis and the Somalis in A Day of Heroes; Nils Idelman, designer of WaW: Operation Garbo, on using miniatures in WaW; Pete Atack with a Batrep on “Wittman’s Ghost,” a scenario in DotFP; preview articles by Ed Texeira (All Things Zombie) and Jim Werbaneth (on the re-release of Britain Stands Alone); artwork by Tom Herrschaft, Olivier Revenu, and Guillaume Ries; and, of course, Mark Walker on rules variations in Island War Deluxe, plus an IWD Batrep and a preview of the re-release of Forgotten Heroes.
Splendid new scenarios include “Snakes in the Garden” by Yvan Descotes, for Forgotten Heroes, in which squads of Green Berets must rescue a downed USN aviator before he’s captured by a swarm of NVA infantry thatwitnessed the crash. In “Death from the Sky,” a WaW scenario by Ralph Ferrari, Soviet paratroopers from the 2nd Airborne Division must successfully drop in on and secure a West German town despite an advancing American formation. A Band of Heroes scenario by Tom Herrschaft depicting the assault on Brecourt utilizes a new map and counters. And Mark Walker adds two scenarios. The first, a unique WaW scenario features combat between the Israeli Defense Force and the Syrians in WWIII, which will also utilize a new map and counters for two battalions of Syrian T-72s with an attached ZSU-23/4 (Shilka) fighting an Israeli armored company comprised of Merkavas with an M-106 section and an F4 Phantom flight in support. The second, another WaW scenario set on the Death of the First Panzer map, depicts M-60 A3s from the American 8th Army against a formation of Soviet T-80s.
