D-Day, June 6th, 1944

The day and battle that is the focus of this book is one of the most pivotal and celebrated not only in the history of the Second World War but that of world history; D-Day, June 6th, 1944, the opening of the second front in Europe. Not only for its historical and military significance but also because of the iconic and cultural impression it has left.
When people think of bravery or sacrifice, they are imbued with mental imagery of the soldiers storming the beaches of Normandy made all the more vivid by works of popular culture (film, tv, computer games etc), education of our youth, scholarly works of history, and days of remembrance for our war veterans.
D-Day or, as D-Day was known by its planners, Operation Neptune (The first phase of the overall plan to liberate Fortress Europe: Overlord), was a combined operation of truly gargantuan proportions the likes of which we hope never to see again. Operation Neptune was the fruit of years of planning, training and preparation. A bringing together of the best military, scientific, and engineering minds to overcome what was seen as one of the greatest manmade bulwarks ever created; the Atlantic Wall.
In the two years prior to D-Day, the Allies amassed stockpiles of material in preparation for the invasion. Aircraft, ships, landing craft, artillery, and tanks in the tens of thousands, five million tons of invasion supplies, while a million and a half servicemen were stationed in England ready to take on Hitler’s armies in France.
The logistics of the operation were astounding. An invasion fleet numbering over 7,000 craft, tactical and strategic aircraft support of around 8,000 in number. The 150,000 ground troops carried aboard the ships of the invasion fleet as well as a further 20,000 involved in the airborne assault on D-Day, would pry open Hitler’s Atlantic Wall creating a foothold the Allies would endeavour to exploit with their superiority in material and manpower.

This book will look at D-Day through the eyes of wargamers who seek to recreate the heroic deeds of the soldiers involved in the battle to forge a second front and, ultimately, defeat Nazi Germany.
