  • Errata counters for this game were included in Korea (2014), Smolensk and Hungarian Rhapsody.
  • British 50th Inf Bde counters - Units of the British 50th Inf Division were mistakenly shown as regments instead of brigades. This has no effect on play, but here are replacement counters. These were also included in The Third Winter.
