The game Close Combat: Invasion Normandy recreates the reality of this historic battle from the point of view of the soldiers involved in the liberation of Europe. As an American commander you have to fight your way from Normandy beaches to Cherbourg harbor, which must be taken before the end of June. The German commander, on the other hand, must keep the American troops on the beach for as long as possible and expect support, and after receiving it he must try to push the allied forces back to the sea.
The tactical game is conducted in real time. In an extensive campaign, we move through many branches on the strategic map of the Cherbourg area.
