On June 6, 1944, thousands of American, British, and Canadian troops landed on the Normandy region of France in Operation Overlord. Now, it is simply called D-Day, and it helped to turn the tide of World War II against the Nazi Germans.
Now you can recreate the American landing on Omaha Beach with this book of 42 paper soldiers! 21 American G.I.s fire M1 Garands, lob grenades, and wield Browning Automatic Rifles under the leadership of 2 sergeants with Thompson submachine guns. They are opposed by 21 Wehrmacht soldiers with rifles, grenades, and 2 powerful MG42 machine guns with ammo belts. 6 “Czech hedgehog” beach obstacles are included to recreate the formidable beach defenses.
This book measures 8.5″x11″, and contains 10 pages of figures and bases. Historical information about these soldiers of World War II is included on the back cover.
