Unit Overview

Welcome to the 28th Infantry Division web-site, the home of DoDS Realism. The 28th Infantry Division is a Day of Defeat: Source "DoD:S" Realism unit, we strive to be as realistic in unit structure and tactics as the 'Source' engine will allow. We portray the 28th Infantry "Keystone" Division who saw extensive fighting in the Hurtgen Forest "September 1944 - February 1945" and out of the battle became known as "The Bloody Bucket Division".

The 28th ID is one of the oldest realism based units still going, first founded on 31st May 2003. Since that date we have refined, tuned and developed our selves in to one of the finest realism based units the gaming world has seen.
