A gem of a Joseph Balkoski design from 1986.

The designer himself e-mailed me the following, last weekend, in response to a fan letter:


My work on the St. Lo game was in 1984 -- 27 years ago -- and my memory of it is almost non-existent. Sadly, I don't think I even own a copy, although I do recall that I was very proud of that game in that I think it broke new ground in the hobby. Everything in the game was based on the realities of WWII combat that I had learned from interviewing the veterans in the process of writing my book "Beyond the Beachhead." The combat they described to me I tried to represent in the game. 
The situations depicted in "Beyond the Beachhead" are told in some detail, but I wish I had had the page space to tell them in even greater detail. In my later books on the 29th Division (see website below), I do tell of company-level actions in greater detail than in the original book.
