The Game

Combat Mission: Battle for Normandy (CMBN) is a video game in the Combat Mission (video game series) series. It is a simulation of infantry combat at the platoon and company level, during World War II, set during the battle of Normandy. The base game models some of the typical American and German army forces in use at that time. Expansion modules (described below) are also available, that provide additional nationalities, locations, and time frames.[1]

Forces included in the game represent troops and vehicles typical of the U.S. Army, U.S. airborne, and German Army in the Normandy campaign following the initial invasion during the period 6 June 1944 to 1 September 1944. Individual squads, vehicles, and weapons are depicted, striving for a high level of realism in troop behavior and weapon effects.

U.S. Forces

U.S. forces in the initial CM:BN release include U.S. Army regular and airborne forces.

German Forces

German forces in the initial CM:BN release include German Army regular forces.
