We cleverly left the Medals Table out of
the book. It’s reprinted below for your

The burst radius listed for personal
explosives (such as hand grenades) and
artillery is listed in yards. This isn’t
necessarily errata, but can be fairly
confusing.
Improved Healing

also slightly confusing as the text says
