ASL Annual '89

The ASL Annual was first published by Avalon Hill in 1989. Although the focus of the magazine was ASL, this issue contained a Squad Leader article and three Squad Leader scenarios that were later converted to ASL in ASL Annual '90.

ASL Annual '89 also introduced the controversial Incremental Infantry Fire Table.
