Expand your US forces

By utilising the industrial infrastructure of the Detroit auto factories, the US Army was able to out-produce the Axis forces – with the likes of the ubiquitous Sherman tank being produced by the tens-of-thousands. With the trusty Garand rifle, Thompson SMG, Browning MGs, and (when a little more punch was needed) the Bazooka – the GIs were well equipped and supplied to take the fight from the D-Day beaches, through the Normandy bocage, with Patton’s boys stopping only when they’d reached the banks of the Rhine.
