VICTORY IN NORMANDY
Historian Terry Copp explains how Canadian and Polish forces helped prevent the enemy from escaping the Falaise Pocket in August 1944. The fighting in and around St. Lambert-sur-Dives and Chambois decimated the German army.
KILLING MiGs IN KOREA
It may surprise some that all three branches of the Canadian armed forces were busy in the cold, turbulent air over Korea between 1950 and 1953. Their experiences are not well known, but as historian Hugh A. Halliday explains, they did their duty by attacking ground targets and engaging MiG-15s.
