British General Sir Miles Christopher Dempsey, GBE, KCB, DSO, MC, served in both world wars and with considerable competence as brigade, corps, and then army commander in the European theater. Liked and respected, he managed to get along with Montgomery and was highly regarded by him. In fact, it was DEMPSEY in command of the three Anglo-Canadian beaches at Normandy. Technically, all FIVE of the Normandy beaches were "Montgomery's," since he was the commander of the entire army group, with Omar Bradley commanding the American contingents on 2 beaches and Miles Dempsey commanding the three Anglo-Canadian beaches. But can anyone imagine calling this game "Dempsey's D-Day?"
Monty’s D-Day was first published in 1985 and well received, but not widely distributed due to a production error that limited the number of salable copies. Now, four decades later, designer John Prados smoothed and polished the system, added rules for parachute and amphibious landings, Hobart's "funnies", plus new options for German alternative responses. ATO did publish Bradley's D-Day covering the US landings at Utah and Omaha beaches in its Campaign Study #3. Of course, everyone would like Monty’s D-Day to get a similar upgrade. The wild blue yonder hope would be that the two games could combine.
