I was the WWII Webmaster for the 3d Armored a few years ago (Jim "Jimbo" Moran).
Just for some background and mood for the game, here is a "war story" of my grandpa and found on the Official 3AD website.

very interesting. My grandpa was a paratrooper for the 1st Canadian Airbourne. He never talked about the war and left the room everytime someone brought it up. The main reason I found out after he passed away was that the plane that he jummped from was shot down and he was the only survivor, the rest of his buddies in his squad were all killed. Shows how much respect you have to give to all these veterans, they all went through hell like this.
