Default The Normandy Campaign

I've always thought of Project Normandy as a big "campaign". I thought Operation Overlord in version 1 was a campaign already: beach landings, then proceed inland and eventually fight over the occupied village.

Now that more maps are coming to Project Normandy, this whole idea of a campaign gets even better. Maps are somewhat connected to each other if you look closely. They can be played in a certain order. Obviously this order isn't historically accurate and all battles are fought by Americans vs Germans, but I still like the idea.

I've put "The Normandy Campaign" in Google Maps, where you can easily add positions, draw lines, etc. Visit it here:




This overview gives you information about the maps and the order of the maps. Note that maps like "La Varde" aren't finished (at all) and may not make it to the mod eventually.

I plan to put more information into the overview as the project progresses.

The description of Bloody Gulch is wrong, afaik it was the 101st Airborne defending against 6th Fallschirmj?ger Regiment and 17th SS Panzergrenadier Division "G?tz von Berlichingen", with the 2nd Armoured entering the fray later.

You're right. I've edited the text, should be more accurate now.
I think other texts can be adjusted as well. Feel free to comment on those too. All feedback is appreciated.

That is awesome, the story behind the maps and them being linked together makes it much more immersive.

I've updated the descriptions again. Should be much more historically accurate now. If you spot mistakes or errors, feel free to comment, to make them better.

I've also moved the "Operation Overlord - Airborne Assault" pin to its correct location. Though the map is in a fictional part of Normandy, the historical event took place near St. Mere Eglise (amongst other locations).

the image of the brecourt manor map is kind of misplaced, it should be more to the east on the correct map marker

Sure, where do you want it? (perhaps link to a Google Maps location)
