Take command of either the Allied Expeditionary Force or Germany’s Wehrmacht.  You will either carry out the world’s largest amphibious invasion to liberate Europe from Nazi occupation or defend Hitler’s Atlantic Wall!  From the initial airborne landings to the fight for the beaches and the drive inland towards the D-Day objectives, Close Combat – The Longest Day covers it all.

 

Close Combat – The Longest Day comes with expanded force pools, support for much larger maps, night battles with simulated flare effects, and more!  Also included in this rebuild is are 60+ battles, operations and campaigns including a new enhanced Grand Campaign covering all the beaches and landing areas as well as "classic" CC5 style Grand Campaign available for download!
