Heroes of Normandie: Big Red One Edition
Just beyond the Normandy Coast, in the beautiful summer of 1944… A fresh apple scent, the sound of the wind in the trees, the kiss of the sun on your skin. You’re discovering, amazed, the beauty of the French countryside. The hills, the forests, the elegant grassy paths… You’re in Normandy, far from your beloved Kentucky. Private Smithy, B company, second Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment. First Infantry Division! The Big Red One, as the “1” on your helmet proclaims it. You survived Bloody Omaha, fought in the Hedgerow warfare, and now are around Caumont, facing those bastards of the 2. Panzer-Division. And they want you dead… Don’t lose hope and remember heroes never die!
In our story, we leave out the extras and focus in on the Heroes who populate the classic Hollywood war movies, from the supporting actors up to the stars. A Bridge Too Far, The Longest Day, Patton, Kelly’s Heroes, Saving Private Ryan. These films are our inspirations, and this is what we have given you in Heroes of Normandie! In order to reproduce the atmosphere of these timeless movie classics, we stepped up the pace of the traditional war game. We have provided you with everything you need to make even the smallest scene explosively exciting! We want you to grin with delight as you mow down those invading GIs with your MG42, or when you bombard those Nazi swine with your bunker smashing mortar fire.
