Simple suggestion: like in FH1 could we perhaps have the year in which the battles took place during WW2 in the map-names? Like Invasion of Crete -1941, Gazala - 1942. In the map description we could also have Month and Day. I think it would be a nice touch so you know the chronological orders etc. I know some maps do have the year in description, but it would be easier to have it on the map name. Also some maps, like Mareth Line I believe, don't even say the year in the description.

I will like, the loading screen from FH1, its really nice.

But, month / day / year is too long, you can put it on the Map description.

Year would be Awesome.

Yeah, stick it in the description for all maps. At the moment we don't have any 'made-up' maps (Sector 318 anyone?) so it won't be a problem for any maps, I believe.

Personally I would also like a more structarized (standarized actually) map discription such as having the date (day, month, year or something along those lines) at the beginning of the discription. Right now days, month and years seem to be mentioned in a random location in the discription.

On the other hand, mentioning a date halfway or at the end might better fit some specific ma discription but overall in my personal opinion it would still be better to have a clear date/month/year structure. Obviously sometimes an exaxt date can't be given but a time indicator should still be given, even "early 1942" would do if a more specific date just doesn't cut it.

I prefer the more 'history book' style we have - the dates come naturally in the flow of the description.

That's fine and dandy, but that's not the case with all maps.
