Having scanned through the rules, it strikes me that this has elements from LnL, CoH, CC and BoB.

I believe I came to the same conclusion...certainly with LnL and CoH

At the risk of being chased out of the gaming world forever, what is CC? I can't get Close Combat out of my head - but I'm sure you ain't referring to that...and I bet I know what CC is when you tell me!

They all have elements of each other.
I find OST the easiest to play. More stream lined rules, less chrome. The impulse point system makes for some battlefield uncertainty which I like but some people not so much. Sometime you just don't get enough impulses in a turn to do what you want or need.
The unit pieces are large and easy to read, great for old guys like us. And I love the huge maps, while other complain they are too big for small scenarios.
I have them all except Pacific... neve was interested in that front much... except for naval/carrier battles.

The only one that interests me is Vol II and maybe the Ghost Div & Abn add-ons. I do wish some of these games would include UK and Commonwealth forces though. I would have been quite happy to stay with BoB if Worthington had continued to put out more expansions. I really like the BoB system.

Vol II and the Airborne expansion are my favourite so far.
Shayne has said that he's working on a British and Commonwealth module.. but I don't know the timing.
Something like the Italian campaign would be great.

^Good question. For which game?

They are notorious for hiding under chairs and for imitating the sound of dykes collapsing.
