The Western Allies had began the largest invasion in history by initiating D-Day, capturing the northern beaches of France from German forces and then advancing deep into Normandy. However, Erwin Rommel had taken control of the Panzer divisions and German reinforcements, making sure the Allies would have a rough and hard campaign attempting to liberate France.

Overview

The German army, under the command of the "Desert Fox" Erwin Rommel, inflicted severe casualties upon Allied forces during the beach landings at Normandy, as well as pinning them down for up to six months.
