Call of Duty 2: Big Red One | GameFront

What in the world is the “Big Red One?” That’s the name of endearment given to the US Army’s 1st Infantry division, which has historically been one of the country’s most prolific and important fighting units. The “Fighting First” has been in existence since World War I and is even deployed in Iraq at this very moment, so needless to say, these guys have been around. Not surprisingly, the 1st Infantry was one of the most important elements of the Allied offensive in the European theater during World War II–they were among the first in North Africa and at Omaha Beach, in addition to playing key roles in Operations Torch, Husky, and Overlord, among others. Obviously, there’s a ton of material to work with here, and Call of Duty 2: Big Red One will chronicle some of the 1st Infantry’s most impressive engagements from a soldier’s-eye perspective.
