An Officer Answers

00:26:37 – Vincent asks “Hi, curious to ear your impressions on the new german book and especially the « beach defense » grenadier list. Do you think it could be a good way to bring more tiger to the table with still a decent number of platoon in an infantry list?”

00:50:00 – Ed also asks “Now that we can mix FE and German DDay, what mix and match do you think could have the most fun factor in it?”
