Discover the crucial role the Canadian military played in one of the most decisive battles of World War II as director Tim Wolochatiuk details the battle at Juno beach during the Allied invasion of Normandy. The date: June, 6th, 1944. The mission: Operation Overlord. Never before in history had a seaborne invasion of this magnitude been attempted. As 160,000 Allied soldiers made their way across the English Channel on a mission to penetrate "Fortress Europe," Canadian forces targeted Juno Beach. Incredibly, they would push deeper into France than any other Allied force. Though victory came at a high price, the sacrifices made by those brave Canadian soldiers during that fateful mission played a crucial role in shifting the tide in favor of the Allies, and heralding the downfall of a ruthless tyrant.
