The combined strength of both the British and American forces, combining all three branches of the Airforce, Navy, and Army struck across the beaches of Normandy trying to find a chink in the Germans impenetrable defences. The Germans put up a fight, making capturing the beaches hard, but the Allies secured a foothold on the beachheads. It was enough to withstand the following German Counter-attacks and eventually break out of Normandy. The war for western Europe was now being fought in earnest, as the Allies raced to liberate France and bring the war to Hitler’s front door.
The American M7 self-propelled 105mm howitzer has gained the nickname 'Priest' in British service from the pulpit-like machine-gun mounting. Built on the chassis of the Grant tank, the Priest gives the armoured divisions a mobile artillery piece able to keep up with its tanks during cross-country moves.
Priest Field Troop (Plastic) includes four Plastic Priest self-propelled guns, one decal sheet and two Unit cards.
