Canadian Amtraks pick up stranded soldiers on the Dutch island of Walcheren. The island, which is under sea level and was drained by Dutch diking centuries ago, was deliberately flooded by Allied bombing to isolate German troops to the high ground before a joint Anglo-Canadian invasion in October-November 1944.

As they continue to battle German troops for control of the Scheldt Estuary, Canadian soldiers traverse a flooded area in an amphibious vehicle.
