About this creation
On Pointe du Hoc (sometimes erroneously known as Pointe du Hoe following a typographical error by an American military cartographer[2][3]) the Germans had built, as part of the Atlantic Wall, six casemates to house a battery of captured French 155mm guns. With Pointe Du Hoc situated between Utah Beach to the west and Omaha Beach to the east, these guns threatened Allied landings on both beaches, risking heavy casualties in the landing forces. Although there were several bombardments from the air and by naval guns, intelligence reports assumed that the fortifications were too strong, and would also require attack by ground forces. The U.S. 2nd Ranger Battalion was therefore given the task of destroying the strongpoint early on D-Day.

Prior to the attack, the guns were moved approximately 1 mile away; however, the concrete fortifications were intact, and would still present a major threat to the landings if they were occupied by artillery forward observers. The Ranger Battalion commanders and executive officers knew the guns had moved, but the rest of the Rangers were not informed prior to the attack.[4] The popular perception that the guns were "missing" on D-Day may be attributed to this decision not to inform the troops prior to the attack.[citation needed]

As some of you (snooperking) may already know, I am in the process of animation of D-Day: Point-du-Hoc. It will be about 10 min. long. I am using iMovie and iStopmotion to animate the scenes. I will post it to youtube (droidpoppers7) July 2010.

But in the meantime, I need characters. The following are the ones avalible.

I will use a first come, first serve basis.



Mace Man



Sargeant Brick


Cpl. Matt S.



Kriss Olympis


Sgt. Shane Peterson(snooperking)

Quoting Mace Man At Lt. Rowe: I thought that was you but alright! He was my favorite one. Oh, and if possible could my rank be Captain. If not that Lietenant and if not that Sergeant.
Um.. I'm a Lt., so you have to be lower than that. and I already have two Sgt.'s, soo.... I guess you will have to be a Pfc. or a Pvt.
