82nd Airborne is an Allied Airborne division in Steel Division, playable during Mission Boston.

Tactics[edit source]

Background[edit source]

Mission Boston was the codename for the US 82nd Airborne's combat drop over Cotentin on June 6th. This veteran division from Sicilty and Italy played a crucial role in D-Day's planning, for it landed at the extreme right flank of the invasion, which it had to secure at all costs. Although the drop went better (or less badly) than its sister-division, the 101st, the 82nd was scattered all over Cotentin and, as a consequence, understrength or ad-hoc units went on fighting to secure objectives intended for much larger outfits, such as Sainte-Mere-Eglise and the Merderet crossings.
