2300 AD Operation Overlord


With a final burst from an M-4 rifle, the last Kafer guard fell. The sergeant turned away from the lifeless alien form as a pair of American Marines carefully planet a timed explosive charge at the base of the weapon tower's main turret mechanism. "One down, eleven to go," said the sergeant. He glanced at his watch. "We got our work cut out for us. Let's move, people."

One by one, the Marines descended through the floor hatch, down the long vertical shaft to the ground level. The squad cautiously exited the tower as nearby a flurry of surface-to-surface missiles screamed into the air, destined to strike the main Marine assault force some fifteen kilometers away. The sergeant eyed the source of the fiery salvo.

"Target number two?" someone asked.

The sergeant just nodded. "Saddle up people," He said calmly. The squad filed aboard the bug bus that the Kafers so graciously ‘loaned' them.

In the distance around them, the Kafers went about their business preparing for the impending Marine assault – lining up along defensive positions, preparing vehicles and readying weapons. All the while unaware of the enemy team which had infiltrated their compound. Their oversight cost them dearly…

While human fleets continue to battle the remaing Kafer warships along the frontier, a tiny unnamed star system serves as the home of a forward base for Kafer warships which continue to conduct raids deep into the French Arm. The system, know simply as DM+36 2393, contains a single garden world – the German colony world of Dunkelheim, This is the location of the Kafer's citadel base and the target of Operation Overlord.

The year us 2303, the Kafer invasion has been halted and the alien warships have been pushed back to the frontier. Still, the fighting is far from over. Pockets of Kafer ground troops exist on every single human colony world from Beowulf to Aurore. Kafer guerillas continue to attack the colonial towns and cities. Numerous Kafer warships continue to operate within the French Arm, raiding colonies, attacking unprotected shipping and ambushing stray warships.

However, these raiders have a weak link – they need to be supplied. Their forward base at Dunkelheim has to be eliminated and Admiral Borodin has put the Americans to the task.

Operation Overlord is the American Marine assault on the Kafer citadel based at Dunkelheim. The adventure follows a group of American Marines from their interface assault landing through a mission which takes them into the heart of the Kafer "Ch*!!"

This book contains information on the colony world of Dunkelheim and the citadel which serves as the Kafer "Safe Place." This book also contains extensive information about American Marines, their equipment and their organization.

A modified skills list is even included for characters who enter the career path of the Corps. Finally a brief update on the Kafer War is provided, describing the disposition of naval forces and of the American Marines following the completion of the adventure.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
