Paratrooper 2nd Edition

Paratrooper was the second ASL module published by Avalon Hill. It was intended to act as a bridge between Squad Leader and ASL. An ASL player only required the ASL Rulebook and the boards from Squad Leader to play the scenarios. All the units and information counters were contained in the module. Paratrooper contained Chapter K to assist new players.

When Paratrooper was republished by MMP in 2001, Chapter K was removed as this was now included in the second edition Rulebook.

An unmounted version of board 24 was included in Action Pack 3: Few Returned.

When Yanks was republished by MMP in 2015, the scenarios from Paratrooper were included.
