On June 6th, 1944, Allied forces invaded Normandy, France. Of the nearly 150,000 Allied troops,14,000 were Canadians. Although the Allies encountered German defenses bristling with artillery, machine guns, mines, and booby-traps, the invasion was a success. However, this success came with a big cost. On D-Day, Canadians suffered 1074 casualties, including 359 killed. Join us in reflecting on one of the most pivotal battles of all time, with Dr. Jeff Noakes, Second World War Historian.
