Dr. Jeffrey Noakes, Canadian War Museum – 7th Anniversary of D-Day

On June 6th, 1944, Allied forces invaded Normandy, France. Of the nearly 150,000 Allied troops,14,000 were Canadians.

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.
