even though it is not exactly squad leader. I prefer games on ww1 or
ww2, but I think the system for this game looks very promising, and
have preordered it from GMT. From the game homepage:
"Fields of Fire is a solitaire game of commanding a rifle company
between World War II and Present Day. The game is different from many
tactical games in that it is diceless and card based. There are two
decks used to play. The Terrain Deck is based on a specific region and
is used to build a map for the various missions your company must
perform. The Action deck serves many purposes in controlling combat,
command and control, various activity attempts. The units of the
company are counters representing headquarters elements, squads,
weapons teams, forward observers, individual vehicles or
helicopters. A single playing is a mission and several missions from
an historical campaign are strung together for the player to manage
experience and replacements. A mission can be played in about 1 - 2
This game is based on three actual campaigns experienced by units of
the 9th US Infantry in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam."
The image gallery on BGG has a series of images describing how some
of the rules work. The full playtest rules have been posted somewhere
as well, probably on CSW.
