Prepare For Your Finest
In Medal of Honor Allied Assault, you are Lt. Mike Powell,
member of the famed 1st Ranger Battalion. Following your recruitment by the
OSS, you'll battle through over 20 challenging levels, based on historical
military campaigns of World War II.
The seeds of World War II are
sown at the end of World War I; the treaties signed at the end of the Great War
satisfy neither the victors nor the vanquished. Social, political, and economic
changes nurture these seeds over the next 21 years, until they germinate in
Poland. Barely 20 years after the "war to end all wars," German dictator Adolph
Hitler plunges the world into a war that will take the lives of 50 million
people. In the months following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, the United
States is in no position to actively pursue the war in Europe. Its army is far
below the strength required for the task, there are no U.S. forces in Europe,
and the shipping needed to transport a massive invasion force does not exist.
Despite these problems, and within a month of the attack on Pearl Harbor,
Churchill meets with Roosevelt at the Arcadia Conference in Washington, D.C.,
where they agree on a "beat Germany first" strategy. The American leadership
acknowledges that the bulk of Allied ground forces will have to confront the
German threat as soon and as decisively as possible. From Pearl Harbor to
D-Day, American determination to confront the German army never wavers, but
events make it clear that half-measures will not lead to victory. At the
Trident Conference, held in Washington, D.C., in May 1943, the date for the
Allied invasion of France is tentatively reset for May 1, 1944. In the
intervening year, the biggest buildup of men and materiel ever assembled for a
military operation takes place in England.
