On July 9, 1943, Patton's U.S. Seventh Army and Montgomery's British Eighth Army invaded the southeast coast of Sicily, the Allied opening move for the liberation of Europe. After a year of bitter fighting in Italy, the Allies then invaded Normandy on June 6, 1944, the most hazardous and fateful military operation of the war. Its success led to the defeat of Germany by May '45.
WestFront depicts these two years of warfare in a tense struggle between a formidable land power and a dominant air/sea power. The German player must (with 80% of his army fighting to the death against Russia on the EastFront) find a way to defend over 3000 miles of coastline, because Allied invasions my strike anywhere from Denmark to Greece.
