Normandy battles are back. Join us in the airborne and landing operations of Operation Overlord as we launch an all-out assault on the beaches and fields of France!

In CMP's 14th FH2 campaign we will take the fight to the Western Front as the Allies launch their assault on "Fortress Europe", from the wide open sandy shores to the lush green countryside of Normandy. Experience frantic fighting on the beaches and skirmishes among the bocage to large scale engagements between tanks and airplanes.

Throw yourself in the mud for cover, fight through hedgerow after hedgerow, brace for shellshock as the ground around you is pounded by artillery fire, and have faith in your company mates when you assault your objective. Every week your team's skills and planning will be tested against an equally determined foe.

Get your gaming gear ready for a community-led co-operative campaign on maps including as

FRIDAY , October 6th, 18hUTC , the map OMAHA BEACH will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
History
"Of all five landing beaches on D-Day, "Omaha Beach" was without a doubt the bloodiest of the day. The assault troops of the 29th Infantry Division and 2nd Ranger Battalion landing in Dog Green and Charlie sectors had the difficult task of securing the beachhead and clearing the road leading inland at Vierville-sur-Mer.
The draw off the beach was heavily defended by the German Wehrmacht's 352nd Infantry Division, at 15 strongpoints also known as 'Widerstandsnester' (Resistance Nests). Each strongpoint was armed with machine guns, mortars and anti-tank guns interconnected by trenches and tunnels. These defences created a murderous cross-fire for any would-be attackers moving inland."

FRIDAY , October 13th, 18hUTC , the map ST.MARIE-DU-MONT will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
History
"In the night of 6 June 1944 more than four hundred planes dropped the American parachutists of the 101st Airborne Division in Normandy. The 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment landed on drop zone C near Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. The units were widely scattered. A group of about a hundred men gathered under General Taylor who commanded the division and Lieutenant-Colonel Ewell who commanded the 3rd battalion of the 506th Regiment.
They moved toward Utah Beach to take control of the exit n°1. On the way they neutralized a German strong point near Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. Another group of parachutists destroyed a battery west of the town. Several paras hit the ground in the middle of the town, American and German troops killed each other in great confusion.
In the afternoon Sainte-Marie-du-Mont was liberated by a group of paras of the 501st and 506th Regiments. The Americans took by surprise the Germans who were pushed back by the Landing on Utah Beach"

FRIDAY , October 20th, 18hUTC , the map GOLD BEACH will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
History
"On the morning of the 6th of June 1944, the 50th (Northumbrian) Infantry Division landed on the beaches between the Normandy towns of Le Hamel and Ver sur Mer. The code name given to this landing ground was Gold Beach. Opposing the landing was the 716th Static Infantry Division, formed from Germans unfit for the Eastern Front and conscripts from occupied nations. The initial bombardment and the support of the "Funnies" from the 79th Armored Division led to the creation of a beachhead six miles wide and deep by the end of the day."

FRIDAY , October 27th, 18hUTC , the map BRECOURT MANOR will be played in the Forgotten Hope 2 Campaign
History
"June 6th, 1944. A German gun battery was reported to be placed 6 miles off Utah beach, in the vicinity of Brecourt Manor. It was firing at causeway #2, inflicting heavy casualties on the troops of the U.S. 4th Infantry Division that were trying to clear the landing zones and advance inland using that route.
On this morning Capt. Thomas Meehan III, the CO of E Company, 2nd Bn, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division, was killed in action when his C-47 transport plane was shot down while approaching the drop zone. So the command of EASY company was passed on to its XO, 1st Lt. Richard Winters. After linking up with his parent unit at the hamlet of Le Grand Chemin, Winters was ordered to eliminate the gun position with his company."
