Victor decided to go for the Americans for the simple reason that he has not made an army of them before! Plus, it gives him a chance for lots of lots of Shermans.

Thanks for all the coverage today, gutted I can’t be there this time but good to be able to see what everyone’s up to, except @commodorerob, cos he’s hiding as per usual!!

Corner him @dignity and get him on camera, instead of behind it for a change 👍😁

All you need is a church for the board with the big village square and you have St Marie Eglise.

This is so great lads. To do this bootcamp on this weekend. I’ve been reading the “this time in 1945” posts, watching the shows the tv has done for D-Day and I don’t mind saying I’m tears.
