    I am a huge history buff and WWII is no exception. I've read pretty much everything there is on the storming of Normandy. Makes me tres proud that Canada played such an important role at Juno. The liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany came at a bloody price though.

The British role in D-day was to send 25,000 men to Gold Beach and another 29,000 to Sword Beach, both east of Omaha. (The Canadians went to Juno.) These landings were not so bitter as Omaha, but inland the Commonwealth soldiers met fierce resistance. Their target, the important city of Caen, was not taken until early July.
