D-Day IV: The Crown vs The Condor

Presented by the Eastern Wolves and Section 8
May 20,2012

Background:

Historical D-Day:
During the first six months of 1944, the Allied Forces concentrated land, naval, and air forces in England to prepare for Operation Overlord, the assault on what was known as Hitler’s “Fortress Europe.” While the Soviet Union tied down a great portion of the enemy’s forces, the western Allies marshaled their resources, trained their forces, separately and jointly, for the operation, and fine tuned the invasion plans to take full advantage of their joint and combined capabilities.

Nine army divisions (three airborne and six infantry) from the United States, Britain and Canada trained and rehearsed their roles in the carefully choreographed operation. Rangers climbed cliffs, engineers destroyed beach obstacles, quartermasters stockpiled supplies and infantrymen waded through the English surf as each honed the skills necessary for the invasion’s success.

Finally, on June 6, 1944, the assault was launched. Amphibious craft landed some 130,000 troops on five beaches along 50 miles of Normandy coast between the Cotentin Peninsula and the Orne River while the air forces controlled the skies overhead. In the eastern zone, the British and Canadians landed on GOLD, JUNO and SWORD Beaches. The Americans landed on two beaches in the west:UTAH and OMAHA. As the Allies came ashore, it took several hours to make the 200meter trek across the deadliest beach any of the men had seen. In total, the allies suffered approximately 10,000 casualties, but it was the first step on the final road to victory…

Our “D-Day”:
D-Day IV is a combat simulation inspired by events which transpired on June 6, 1944. It is NOT, by any means, an authentic simulation of WWII combat. Players are permitted to wear any uniform they choose, and carry any replica AEG of their choice. WWII loadouts are NOT required!

Scenario: The attacking team (tan) must clear the beach of enemy opposition by advancing through gaps made in the wire, destroying bunkers, and creating a foothold on the beach. Following the Beachhead, the attackers will advance through the “D-1″ draw into the village. Beyond this area, the attacking team will encounter enemy patrols, and will be on the lookout for their future objectives.
