    Yaquinto Close Assault

    I picked this game up in the PX in 1982-83. It was way over my head at that time, and to be honest it may still be! Still, since discharge in 1984 this game has made every move I have, just couldn't leave it behind.

    WOW... that is an oldie! It has some kind of tie to the Vietnam War game, “Firepower”, and you can see some similarities. Check out this vid...

    Agreed, this is basically Firepower for WWII. Both games were designed by S. Craig Taylor. Close Assault was published the year before Firepower.

    I like how you can modify the terrain by placing trees and buildings (and I guess that's a hill?). That wasn't possible in Firepower, unless maybe you used terrain pieces from Close Assault! That feature makes it closer to a miniatures skirmish game.
