D-DAY: The Free World Fights Back
It was the spring of 1944 and the Allies could not wait any longer. It was time to roll the dice in the greatest military operation in history. The Allies—British, American, Canadian—would land on five beaches on France’s Normandy coast in the early hours of June 6—D-Day. Read about Canada’s role in the spearhead force to liberate Europe.

Canadian troops led the advance across Belgium and into the Netherlands where, as liberators, they were greeted by thousands of grateful Dutch citizens. In the east, the Soviet Red Army was tightening its stranglehold on Berlin. The endgame was at hand.
