It's June 6th, D-day!

This year marks the 70th anniversary of operation Overlord the Allied landings in Normandy. As I write this there are events happening all around the world to commemorate this world changing battle. Celebrations starting early this morning at Pegasus Bridge where the first allied troops silently landed in gliders and captured the vital bridge in minutes. Later in the morning British paratroopers dropped from the skies, among them was an 89 year old veteran who jumped into battle for the first time 70 years ago. Not to be out done the Royal Marines reenacted the amphibious landings with a flotilla of ships sailing from Portsmouth to Arromanches. With them was also several veterans, one of which celebrates his 100 birthday next month.
     
Of course today is also the 12th year that the D-day mod for Red Alert 2 has been in development and the 2nd year since its public release. Unfortunately unlike the previous years I don't have a new version of D-day ready for release. Instead to commemorate this anniversary I have created a wiki for D-day's vast collection of units.



The D-day Wiki currently has over 650 articles with 1,500 images. It's been quite a mammoth task to put it all together over the past few months, however I'm still far from finished. I'll be continuing to update it with background histories on each of the units along with photos and diagrams of the real vehicles. I hope you will enjoy looking though the wiki as much as I have making it.
