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.
