An entry in Pvt. Martin's diary:

D-Day 0500 Hours
Ste Mere Eglise

The boys on the beaches must have landed by now. They are only a few miles away, but right now that seems like a million. We don't have a radio and are completely cut off.

Cpt. Foley was right. We did face a platoon or more German paratroopers when we took this village last night.

Today we hold it against German counterattack. Our defenses are all stolen: enemy MG42s Panzerfausts for anti tank defense and the village itself.

The Air Force and Navy put on quite a show this morning pounding the hell out of these beaches. One thing is certain, the Germans know we are here. Whether that means they turn tail and run or come swarming out of the wood work we are about to find out.


Ste. Mère Eglise, France
JUNE 6, 1944
0700 hrs

Pvt. Martin's Squad position is attacked by mortars.

Soldier 1: Up! Get up! Wake it and shake it! The Germans are bringing your coffee!

Captain Foley: Off the street! Mortars!

Soldier 2: Incoming!

Soldier 1: Mortars, incoming!

Foley's squad takes refuge from mortars in a house for overhead cover. Then the mortars attack stops.

Captain Foley: All right, the mortars are taking a break. Johnson, go have a look.

Johnson: Right, Captain.

Johnson goes out to the streets to take a look. Johnson goes to check a building and then is killed by a Unknown German Sniper.

Captain Foley: They got him! Damn!

Foley and the rest of the squad goes out to the streets to repel a German counterattack. After repelling a German counterattack from the West, a Tiger appears from the Northeast.

Captain Foley: We got company! Tiger, moving in from the east!

Soldier: Behind you!

The Tiger approaches and then opens fire with his Machine gun.

Captain Foley: That's a Tiger! Martin, get a Panzerfaust from the church and take that mother out! Jackson, Baker, follow me, we'll draw their fire! Go!

Martin goes to the church to get the Panzerfausts, killing germans on the way. Martin and his squad take out enemy infantry before to proceed to take out the Tiger with his Panzerfaust, and then Martin destroy the Tiger.

Captain Foley: Martin - back to the church with me! The rest of you hold this position!

Martin and Foley retreat to the church, while the rest of Foley's squad hold their positions at the streets. Martin and Foley, along with another american paratroopers at the church, repels a German counterattack coming from the South. The squad succesfully repels the counterattack.

Captain Foley: They're pulling back! Alright! Good work, but don't let them down. They'll be back. Lewis, Franklin, hold the church. Everyone else, follow me!

Whilst Lewis and Franklin hold their positions to defend the church, Martin, Foley and the rest of the squad move in through a couple of buildings before to make contact with a German counterattack from the Southwest. The squad repels the attack succesfully again.

Captain Foley: They're fallin' back! Push 'em outta here! Move it -- go!

Foley's squad advance to the South, making a try of repel the remainig German couterattack. After of take out the remaining German counterattack, Mortars attack Squad's position.

Captain Foley: Regroup! Regroup! Over here! Nice work!

While the squad is attacked by mortars, they attempt to fall back to the church. The squad is surprised by a Tiger, along with German infantry from the Northeast. The Tiger, along with the enemy infantry opens fire against Foley's squad.

Soldier: Tank!! Take cover!!

Captain Foley: Martin, get another Panzerfaust and take it out! We'll hold off their infantry!

While Foley's squad hold off German infantry, Martin attempts to avoid the Tiger and infantry while he falls back to the church to get another Panzerfaust to take out the Tiger. While Martin fall back to a couple of buildings while he's killing enemy infantry on the way, he's surprised by the Tiger when he shoots his cannon against a house where Martin was falling back, and also is engaged by two German soldiers into the house. While Foley's squad hold off German infantry near to the church, Martin goes to the church and then pick up a Panzerfaust. Martin take out the Tiger with his Panzerfaust.

Captain Foley: Nice shot, Martin.

The squad makes their way south, searching the houses. They find more infantry, and fight back.

Parker: Sir! We just spotted German mortar teams to the south! I say we move in quick, and take 'em out!

Captain Foley: Nice one, Parker. Okay guys... be ready to use any grenades you have left! Put down suppressing fire only if you need to - do not waste your ammo! All right, let's put those mortars out of business!

The squad manages to cross the field and take out both of the mortar positions.

Sergeant Moody: Martin, over here. Get in the car.

Martin regroups with everyone else at the black car. He enters the passenger side seat.

Sergeant Moody: Ok, Captain, assuming that we get back to battalion in this rolling junkyard, what do I tell 'em?

Foley gives Sergeant Moody a piece of paper.

Captain Foley: Give this directly to Major Sheppard. Tell him Baker company has secured the town, but won't be able to hold it for long - if we don't get relieved soon. Got that, Sergeant?

Sergeant Moody: Oh, yes sir, you bet. We ride through enemy lines in a French tin can. Wanna paint a bullseye on it, sir?

Captain Foley: I'm Pretty sure that won't be necessary, Sarge. So unless you got a better idea - or a radio that works, carry on. Good luck.

Foley walks away.

Private Elder: This is nuts! I can't believe I'm doing this.

Sergeant Moody: Believe it! Unless you sprout wings and wanna fly. It's only six miles, Private, just shut up and do your job.

Moody changes gears and the level ends.
