Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
On this day in 1944, over 150,000 men from the United States, Great Britain, and Canada stepped onto the beaches of Normandy and began to push back the Nazi armies. By the end of the day, 10,000 of these brave souls would be missing, wounded, or dead, but the Allied Forces had established their foothold on the Shores of France, and would not be dislodged.
Canada contributed 14,000 soldiers to Juno Beach, landing under heavy German Artillery and Machine Gun fire. Between 7:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., we established our beachhead and begin moving inland. By the end of the day, our boys had reached their D-Day objective, the Caen-Bayeux Highway intersection, 16.5km inland. Unfortunately, to preserve the battle line, our forces pulled back, but this achievement was the closest any of the D-Day invasion forces came to their objectives.
This is a WW2 thread, for you're grandpa's WW2 stories and/or WW2 memorabilia.
