The Cotentin Peninsula, South of Cherbourg: June 6th, 1944. (Scenario Size: Corps. Head to Head or Team Play, Human vs AI for either side) The Great Crusade began just after midnight on June 6th with the landing of the US 101st Airborne Division closely followed by the 82nd Airborne. The paratroopers aim was to secure the causeways off Utah Beach to protect the amphibious landing of the US 4th Infantry Division while blocking any German reserves from crossing the Douve River. More significantly the aim of landing in the Cotentin Peninsula was to allow the quickest access to Cherbourg, the largest deep water port in Normandy. The first day of landings would be chaotic with both scattered airdrops and vigorous German responses to the Allied interlopers.

The US paras where weaker as they took severe losses in the landings. This meant when the main German forces came on the scene they could not really stand up to them.
