1-6.  OPERATION OVERLORD D-DAY
OPERATION OVERLORD D-DAY
    Axis and Allies FAQ-Walkthrough by Deuce ex Defcon

"Despite the victories in southern Italy, the march northward remains slow, and the bulk of the German forces have been able to continue the fight against Russia. At Stalin's urging, the time has come to open a new front. On June 6th, 1944, this front will be openned with an amphibious invasion in Normandy that will mark the final days of Germany's conquest. Despite substantial misinformation fed to the Germans about the time and location of the landing, coastal defenses remain enormous. D-Day is about to begin."

Walkthrough
-----------

If you've been despressed with what seemed like a total lack of difficulty in this game, this mission should cheer you up. Or piss you off, whichever. Start by moving your battleships and carrier to the souther-east and using them to blast the defenses in the very corner of the beach down there. They won't be able to completely destroy the defenses though; you'll have to land some troops to do that.
 
If you recall your training missions, the battleships can deploy both marine units and Corps HQ buildings. Send in a unit of marines from each of the three battleships, but watch out for the little clusters of water mines near the shore. Use the infantry to destroy the bunkers and AA guns, then land a Corps HQ building and deploy it a little to the north.
 
Here's where things get tricky. You need to build fast, and I mean FAST. Not only are the Germans going to swarm you with crap in a matter of minutes, but your allies will also be stealing all the damn land from around you. (Idiots don't even keep their structures close together to conserve space...)
 
Build yourself up to the point where you can build artillery tank units, then crank out nine units of them as fast as possible. As soon as you get the first three of them ready, send them north to the town with the objective marker in it. The Germans will continuously try to take over that town, so park your artillery tanks on the east side of the river and let them blast anything that tries to exit the town into your base.
 
Once the next three units of artillery tanks are done, send them to the south west part of your base, by the shoreline. German units will sneak in that way sometimes, and I don't just mean a few small units. Hopefully, your closest ally will help you out a little down there as well. If not, then he's most likely sending a bunch of crap to that northern town, so either way he'll be helping you a great deal.
 
Send the final set of three artillery tank units to the north and make one group of six units with the other three. If you don't already have control of the town, go take it right now. Once you have it, your ally should be able to defend it for the most part. Blast any nearby German concentrations, let your units resupply, and turn north to destroy the large base up there.
 
You'll have to go in quick, short rushes. Blast a few units or structures, then run back to the town to repair your stuff. Repeat the process until the entire base and every German unit around it is destroyed. If the town gets threatened by anything, immediately go help your allied guy defend it; can't afford to lose any of your artillery tank units. (Note: for whatever reason, the secondary objective above the town rarely actually disappears when you eliminate the Germans from around it. Dunno why... just ignore it for now.)
 
Now that you've cleared out that concentration of Germans, the next step is to move a few of your ammo or oil depots up to the town. Deploy them in a row moving towards the top of the screen so that your resupply zone stretches all the way up there. Your next target is the north-western base (where the second optional objective marker is located). If your ally in the south-west is doing well, you should have no problem mowing through this base, although you might need to retreat to your supply zone a few times.
 
If your ally in the south-west isn't doing very well, or he's been completely eliminated, this mission is almost certainly going to degenerate into a horrid stalemate of repeated tank clashes that result in nothing other than massive amounts of destroyed German units. Either way, all you need to do to win the mission is keep control of the three central cities. The one you already have should be fairly easy to keep.
 
The one in the middle will be easy once you destroy the concentration to the north. The third one should be extremely easy if your ally in the south-west doesn't already have control of it. One thing to be very careful of: the concentration in the north-west part of the map will build airfields if you don't destroy it fast enough. If that happens, you can find yourself in a world of hurt once he starts blasting your buildings. That's why it's very important to get up there as fast as possible.
