The solo campaign of Company of Heroes: Band of Brothers is set during World War II and depicts the actions of US troops during Operation Overlord, specifically between June and August 1944. Players assume control of two companies, "Able" of the 29th Infantry Division and "Fox" of the 506th Parachute Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division. The narrative primarily follows the story of Company of Heroes.
On June 6th, 1944, during the Normandy landing, Captain Sam MacKay, Sergeant Joe Conti, and other soldiers from Company "Able" execute a landing on the "Omaha" beach. Despite the intense fire and challenges, they strive to reach the dikes, detonate the bunker, eliminate the gun crew, and destroy it.
Before the Normandy landing, during a chaotic parachute drop near the village of Vierville, soldiers from Company "Fox" regroup and block the German supply line, aiding the defenders of the "Omaha" and "Utah" beaches. After disrupting the supply convoy, they move towards the town of Carentan to secure the connection between the beaches. Facing stiff resistance, German soldiers are compelled to retreat, and an American paratrooper violently reacts against some refugees. Company "Fox" prepares to defend the city, and German forces are halted by the arrival of Company "Able."
Both American companies advance towards the town of Cherbourg to protect the port. Montebourg repels an attack near the Panzer Lehr Division, guarding a convoy crossing the Red Ball Express. Captain Joseph Günter Schultz, seeking revenge, directs an attack that is observed by MacKay and Conti celebrating their success. Meanwhile, Company "Able" is tasked with securing the central part of Cherbourg. By bombing coastal defenses from the USS "Texas," US soldiers manage to force the surrender of the German defenders. Despite the city's unsuitability as a port due to destruction, captured documents reveal the secret V2 missile base's location in the village of Sottevast, leading parachute forces to invade and destroy the missile base.
