D-Day: Images of War
On June 6, 1944, a massive fleet set forth from England for the Normandy coast of France. Aboard the ships were thousands of Allied soldiers who were about to take part in the D-Day assault on five German held beaches. The Canadians were tasked with taking Juno beach, a stretch of coastline that included the village of Courseulles-sur-Mer.
Thankfully, the D-Day invasion was a success, and it provided the Allies a toehold from which to push forward toward Germany.
