Canadian medics help a wounded soldier - Juno Beach, D-Day June 6th 1944

Medical staff treat wounded Canadian soldier on WWII battlefield.

3rd Canadian Infantry Division - The Canadians assault on Juno Beach in 1944 was one of the most brilliant military campaigns of WWII. This division stormed the wide-open beaches and overcame machine-gun strongholds, beach mines and fierce hand-to-hand combat to secure three French towns. They advanced the furthest inland than any other Allied troops. The 3rd Infantry Division helped the Canadians move up the coast into Belgium and the Netherlands, eventually liberating Amsterdam.

Juno Beach - 1944 Juno Beach was one of the most successful operations on D-Day. Within 24 hours, Canadian forces had pushed their way further through German defences than their American or British counterparts. The largest amphibious invasion in human history relied on three countries to save the world from Nazi rule, and Canada was there to play its part. More than 5,000 of them were killed by the end of the Normandy campaign.
