Quote from: Silent Disapproval Robot
If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

If yer lookin' for the general, I know where he is...

Al Nofi, a founder of SPI, told a story about this.
After Tunisia, there were a lot of german POWs picking peas in the US.  After a year or more of farming, many were ready for a change.  Some of the POW leadership offered to form a panzer division to fight the Japanese.
The thought of veteran panzer troops forming a division for the invasion of Japan was very appealing.  Dubbed "Panzer Korps Kwanto".  Some officers in the Pentagon started to lay out plans for creating the force.
Then it was mentioned to Chief of Staff George Marshall.
"Hessians," he replied.  "You want mercenaries in the American army?"

The plan was dropped in no time. 
Wonder what he would have thought of Black Water and those groups that fight as contractors?

Don't forget that the 1st American Volunteer Group were technically private hires of the Chinese Central Aircraft Manufacturing Company.

Those will eventually see daylight...as the Demo shows, moving to the Pacific is certainly part of the plan for the PzB engine.
