5 June 1944, D-l, 2300 hours: At airfields all across Southern England plane engines roar to life. The first, heavily laden aircraft lumber down the runway and into the air. On board are the brave young men of three airborne divisions, one British and two American. These highly skilled soldiers are trained to drop by parachute and glider deep behind enemy lines. On this night they will spearhead Operation Neptune, the amphibious and airborne invasion of German-occupied France.
As the huge aerial armada crosses the storm-tossed English Channel, below them stretches the largest naval armada in history, in a few hours these ships will throw thousands of Allied soldiers ashore on the coast of Normandy. If the enemy is able to rush reinforcements to the landing beaches the whole invasion could be thrown back into the sea. The enemy reinforcements must be stopped at all costs. This is the vital mission the Allied Command has entrusted to the airborne divisions.
As the commander of an airborne company you have been specially selected because of your leadership ability and initiative. You'll be leading your men into a battle where you know you'll be isolated, surrounded and fighting a larger, more heavily equipped and well supported enemy force.
Just to survive, your men will have to rely on their excellent fiiness, training, discipline and fieldcraft. To be victorious they'll need all of your skill, aggression and daring to make the best use of the limited resources. On your shoulders rests the fate of the liberation of Europe. Go to it!
