15th Infantry is an Allies Infantry division in Steel Division.
Although inexperienced, the 15th Infantry Division fared better in Normandy than many veteran British units. Supported by Churchill’s tanks, the Scots attacked and gained ground on the dreaded 12. SS-Panzer, forcing the Germans to commit several of their precious armoured units against them.
His superior considered MacMillan one of the best, if not THE best, division commanders in Normandy, and attributed to him most of the merits of the Oden offensive.
MacMillan passed unscathed through some of WW1’s worst carnage (Somme, Passchendael, Arras, …), ending the war as one of the most decorated lieutenants in the British Army.
He first saw combat in WW2 participating in the Allied landing in French Algeria in 1943, then was given field command six months later, leading a brigade in the invasion of Sicily.
He was once again distinguished for his performance during this campaign, and promoted to take command of the 15th (Scottish) Infantry Division in England.
He trained for a year in preparation for the invasion of Europe, but only landed in Normandy on D+7. Yet his division will play a key role in Montgomery's offensive across the Odon and towards the infamous Hill 112.
This seemingly inexhaustible pool of veteran, yet cheap, infantry lacks support in Phase A.
Yet it grows more powerful in Phase B, where it is at its best with massive artillery & tank support for its infantry, WW1 style. However, it is hampered by a lack of mobility.
It tends to get winded in Phase C, especially retaining the towed 17-pdr as its best anti-tank weapon.
