Event Navigation

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.
