Insignia of the 29th Infantry Division
The 29th Infantry Division was under General Wetherby's command during the Normandy campaign.
After a costly battle at Omaha Beach, the 29th battled to Carentan and defeated the Germans at a high cost. They then proceeded (along with the 101st, historically) to fight the 6. Fallschirmjäger-Division and the 17th Stubeach G-Abt. to the north. In the next mission, they form one of the defensive units holding back the Germans.
- 2 GI's
- 7 Sherman's
- 4 Wolverines
- 1 M16
- 1 Priest.
- Also, reinforcing them to fight back the Germans is highly useless and a waste of allocated reinforcements.
- It is impossible to reinforce them in the first mission, as A) you are under attack, B) they are in a red sector, and C) you have no way to help them except a little recon. The best you can do is place bunkers that are situated so that when an enemy crosses the bridge from Carentan, they are immediately under fire.
- Like almost all attacking forces, the 29th Infantry Division's units are constantly destroyed, and then regenerated, while their enemies are invincible.
