In this issue of Airsoft Action : If you are reading this on the day it is due to go on sale, you are probably well aware of the significance of today’s date, the 5th June.
70 years ago today, the World’s largest ever armada was due to set sail for France on what it was hoped would be the beginning of the end of the Second World War but the weather closed in and the invasion was postponed.
The next day General Dwight D. Eisenhower gave the order: “OK, let’s go!” and Operation Overlord commenced - D-Day had arrived.
As airsofters we recreate many of the battles these old soldiers fought and, in many ways, I consider it to be a mark of respect and of gratitude that we have the freedom to do so.
It is, therefore, with great pleasure and huge thanks that I dedicate this issue of Airsoft Action to all the men and women, both military and civilian, who fought so courageously and for so long against (what must have seemed like) insurmountable odds – and won.
Whatever happens, we will remember you.
