75 years ago, brave men crossed seas and oceans to come to our aid. English, American, Canadian, French too. Together with other nations from all over the world, they joined forces to bring peace and democracy back to a Europe under Nazi rule. Let's not forget their sacrifice.

This map is a tribute to the american rangers that had the task to secure the Pointe du Hoc. Though the terraforming is accurate at depicting the Pointe du Hoc, the rest of the map is not. There wasn't a village, nor fields that close to the shore. No German vehicles collumn was on its way.

This map is therefore fictional, yet, it embodies all the different landing zones of the allied forces.

Huge thanks to Garrett2by4 for the vehicle designs.




SUPREME HEADQUARTERS

ALLIED EXPEDITIONARY FORCE


Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Force!

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 the 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.

Dwight D. Eisenhower
