Guards Armoured is an Allied Armored division in Steel Division.
Comprising the King's own men, the Household Division was bestowed with the best equipment. In Normandy, faced with the best German units, the Guards suffered terrible losses but were also the first Allies to engage and score a victory over Tiger II tanks.
An energetic man, and a latecomer in his career to armoured warfare, Adair led his division in a frontal style against the Germans.
Already a lieutenant in the Guards in WW1, Adair was back in France with them in 1940 with the B.E.F.
In September 1942, he was given command of the newly formed Guards Armoured Division, earmarked for participation in the invasion of mainland Europe.
Landing in Normandy three weeks after D-Day, his division was involved in the heavy fighting of Operations Goodwood & Bluecoat.
Later, he liberated Brussels and led the spearhead of the British ground offensive during Market Garden.
The Guards combine numerous tank and infantry, both of good quality. With Cromwell from Phase A and Firefly from Phase B, it grows more powerful with each passing moment.
Yet its economy tends to favour a steady progression towards Phase C, hence choices will have to be made earlier on.
