Utah Beach, Cotentin Peninsula. South of Cherbourg: June 6th, 1944. (Scenario Size:Brigade. American Human vs AI ) The US landings on Utah Beach were less costly than the other beaches on D-Day. These landings benefited from the US Airborne drop that scattered over a huge area behind Utah beach, drawing off German reserves. Fortunately, stronger than expected morning currents shifted the initial landings to a more weakly fortified portion of the beach south of the planned area. Brig. Gen. T. Roosevelt Jr., arriving in the first wave made the decision to continue the landings in that location rather than shifting the follow-on forces to the planned beaches. This scenario is a truncated version of #0606_07a: The Shifting Sands of Utah. See the 'Getting Started' guide for a play through tutorial.

Fun scenario however, those enemy bunkers are tough to bust. Would have had a different outcome if more turns were available.
