“One of the most famous events of the Second World War took place on June 6, 1944, when some 14,000 Canadian soldiers came ashore at Juno Beach on D-Day as part of Operation Overlord. This June will mark the 75th anniversary of the massive Allied landings in Normandy, France, that signaled the beginning of the liberation of Western Europe.
