Flames of War Cards: Fog of War Objective and Desert Rat Command Decks

I mentioned in my Review of Afrika Korps and Desert Rats that I also picked up the Fog of War Objective Cards and the Desert Rats Command Cards. At $5 each how can you go wrong, right? I was a bit discouraged to say the least after my time with those books, but I cracked …
