COMBAT! U.S. Squad Patrol: Belgium, 1944. Lead your squad to knock out a German observation post but be forewarned that the guys in the OP may have powerful friends.

YOU COMMAND: Farragut at Mobile Bay, 1864. Confederate forts, obstructions, underwater mines, and four Rebel ironclads, including CSS Tennessee are waiting to give you a hot welcome as you lead your naval force to capture Mobile, Alabama. You can also run ships past the forts with Shot and Shell  from 3W (World Wide Wargames) or Yaquinto’s Ironclads. Both boardgames are unfortunately out of print.
