One of the keys to the success of the D-Day Landings was the widespread use of Allied paratroops and glider-borne Infantry. These airborne warriors landed at night, well ahead of the invasion, jumping out of the their C-47 "Dakota" airplanes or landing in their wooden glider craft into the German rear areas. These elite troopers were tasked with seizing important road junctions, eliminating hidden German gun batteries which could shell the beaches from beyond the reach of the Allied naval units and blocking routes to be used by Nazi units coming up to counter-attack the invading armies.
Airborne warriors silence a gun battery in the tradition of Lt. Winters from "Band of Brothers", eliminate a German strong point and "hold until relieved" by the units fighting their way off the beaches? This is one of three different, but inter-connected, Toy Soldier Company D-Day Playsets.
Each set can stand on its own, but when combined with the other two sets from the same range the resulting collection creates a broad canvas upon which you and your kids can rewrite history!
