Order of the Day 6th of June 1944:
Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Forces:
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.
I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.
Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking. Recent Events
The day of our long planned invasion has finally arrived! At midnight our combined airforces (numbering over 2200 planes) have started bombing the coastline and further inland. At our beach, codenamed Gold, Force K has been bombarding the shore fortifications since 5:30 with medium and heavy attack bombers and self-propelled guns on board of our landing crafts.
We will head out with the first wave of infantry at 7:15 to secure the beach.Objectives
- Secure the first trench line to set us a beachhead and prevent the germans from cutting us off
- Take out the AAA emplacements to enable our bombers to attack
- Link up with the americans from Omaha to set up a unified frontline
