Historical Background:
The German Oberstleutnant was not particularly happy about being interrupted in his morning coffee, so it had taken a while before he took out his binoculars and took a look at the beach he had sworn to protect. His heart almost stopped at that moment. Through the morning fog, hundreds, no thousands of kaki-clad men were crawling all over his beautiful Normandy beach!
"ALARM! ALARM! ALARM!"

Briefing:
Allied player takes 6 command cards, you move first.
Axis player takes 5 command cards.

Conditions of Victory:
6 medals.
Each bunker is worth a temporary victory medal for the allied player.

Special Rules:
The German sandbags can be claimed as defensive positions by both sides. Once claimed, they count as normal sandbags for the rest of the game.
The Allied units marked with the Pegasus Badge and the German unit with the Grossdeutchland badge are special forces and may move 2 hexes and attack.

Warning:
Please note that this scenario was not approved by Richard Borg or Days of Wonder, so you have to check yourself about playability, potential gaming issues, etc.
