How the Canadian Armed Forces contributed to the Allied victory in the Second World War.
Prior to the battle at Juno beach, on June of 1944, you could say the Candian Army had been training ever since they joined the war, in 1939.
Are we ever going to take part in the war?
I hope so!
Great Britain, Canada, and the Usa were forced to commit an attack along the English Channel because, the Soviet Union was pushing land, and the Allies were afraid that they might take control of all Europe.
Months prior to the invasion, the Allies conducted op Bodyguard. They would bomb areas the enemy thought they would attack, tricking them, so they would send more men up to certain areas, and leave other areas more unprotected.
They have no idea!
21,000 Canadians either landed or parachuted into France on D-Day, either storming onto Juno beach, or sneaking behind enemy lines, and trying to confuse the Germans by changing directions of road signals, etc.
After storming Juno Beach, the Canadians took total control of the beach, pushing the Germans back. Prior to them having control over it, for four years. It came at a cost, having 1200 casualties. After, the Canadians kept pushing further into France, pressuring the Axis.
