2nd Infantry is an Allies Infantry division in Steel Division.
Landing on D-Day +1, "Indianhead" fought its way through bocage country and the ruins of Saint-Lô to take part in Operation Cobra's breakthrough. During the battle of Brest, the 2nd ID was the first US unit to use the Xylophone rocket launcher artillery.
A stern and practical officer, Robertson honed his division's skills through intensive training before D-Day.
Serving briefly in France in 1918 as a young officer with the A.E.F., Robertson rose through the ranks commanding the Interwar, achieving colonelcy in 1940.
From May 1942, he took command of 'Indianhead', which he led through all its combats up to the end of the war.
Landing in Normandy at D+1, his division faced terrible hardships: the bocage, the fight for Saint-Lô and the siege of 'Fortress Brest'.
Robertson later played a major role in the battle of the Bulge and was promoted to corps command just after the end of the war on the ETO.
A handful of Rangers in Phase A will make life hard for their opponents, but they are too few to be everywhere at once, hence the Army grunts will have to fill the gaps.In both Phase B & C, riflemen, supported by ever increasing artillery firepower, will be the backbone of this division.
With tanks being limited to a few obsolete M4A1, it will be wiser to rely on 76mm anti-tank guns to get rid of enemy armours.
