    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.
