Axis & Allies D-Day begins as Operation Overlord, the German-held invasion of Normandy, is underway - 130 troops from the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States stand ready to attack the Fortress Europe. You and your other world powers are in control of their destiny.
A player controls Germany, whose Axis forces have transformed the beaches of Normandy into an almost impenetrable fortress. The Allies are ready to violate these defenses: the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. The future of Europe and the world is in the balance.
Axis & Allies D-Day is designed for two or three players and can be played in two hours. Axis & Allies D-Day is the third Axis & Allies variant, following the successes Axis & Allies Europe and Axis & Allies Pacific, both released in 2001.
