Its that time of year again guys.
The invasion of Normandie will begin on the shores of Lake Erie in Conneaut Ohio on September 18.
This year there will be more and bigger toys. Our units 150mm canon will be providing support for us poor souls defending the beachhead.
There will be action around the canon with the dirt darts of the 82nd AirBorne this year.
If you like History and historical weapons of all types, this is the place to be. There will be encampments, by the Germans, American units of all types, the Brits, and the Poles.
I can not get the photo server to work for me, so here are some links to some pictures of previous battles.
