Conflicts: D-Day is a turn based strategy game which takes place on the western front during the Second World War. General Eisenhower has stepped down and you are in the command of the Allied invasion force - tank, airborne, infantry and airforce units - and the object of the game is to break out from the D-Day beachheads and liberate as much of Nazi-occupied France as possible, as quickly as possible. To have a chance to seize the top spot in the Hall of Fame you need to skillfully encircle German units commanded by Erwin Rommel, while battling both the regular Wehrmacht divisions and the feared Panzer VI (Tiger I) tank units.

In order to be a victorious general, it is essential that you learn to coordinate your attacks in two ways. First, as adjacent units give support to an attacking unit, keep your units in groups in order to gain local superiority. Secondly, it is rarely a good idea to use brute force when it is possible to encircle the enemy and cut off its supply lines instead.
