Roads To Victory: Commemorating The 65th Anniversary of VE-Day
It’s been 65 years since Canadian forces helped liberate the Netherlands from Nazi oppression. In a special anniversary section, Legion Magazine commemorates the service and sacrifice that paved the way to victory. Included is an overview (with map) on the victory campaign’s final weeks. Written by renowned historian J.L. Granatstein, this retrospective covers the challenges faced by liberators, and how extremely difficult German occupation was for the Dutch, many of whom perished during the Hunger Winter of 1944-45. Our package also includes a memoir from a soldier who was there, and an update on the iconic D-Day film footage shot on Juno Beach.
