D-Day—June 6, 1944—was the Allied assault on Hitler’s Fortress Europe. The largest seaborne attack in history, the invasion of Normandy, France, would propel the Allies to victory over the Axis powers within 11 months. The Allies’ airborne force alone here numbered 23,000 paratroopers. Almost 7,000 naval ships carrying 156,000 soldiers—including 110 Royal Canadian Navy ships with 14,500 Canadian soldiers aboard—assaulted the coast under a torrent of bullets, bombs and shells. Canada’s task was to land on an eight-kilometre stretch of coastline code-named Juno Beach. By day’s end, a vanguard of Canadians had advanced 14.5 kilometres from the beach, the farthest Allied incursion of the day.
