D-Day: Battle For France Slip Cover D-Day: Battle for France (FW109)
June-September, 1944

With the turning of the tide in the English Channel in the early hours of 6 June 1944, the landing crafts of the Western Allies begin their approach through the surf towards the Beaches of Normandy. The vessels are packed with thousands of Allied soldiers eager to bring the war to the German invaders. D-Day and the battle of France is finally here!

Entrenched in the earth and steel bunkers and pillboxes of the Atlantic Wall the German defenders prepare to hold the Allied forces in place upon the beaches. Rommel’s Panzers follow his strategy of forward defence and the Panzer companies gather inland for the counterattacks that will hurl the Allies back into the sea.

This limited edition set has now sold out but Turning Tide and Earth & Steel will be available for individual purchase.
