Assault On Juno
Dawn, June 6, 1944. Off the Normandy coast 5,000 ships carry 131,000 Allied troops. This is D-Day, the long-awaited Allied invasion of German-occupied Europe. The Allies will storm five beaches. The Canadians will land on a five-mile stretch of sand code-named Juno Beach. They either break the German defences or die trying. Piling out of small, frail landing craft, they struggle through bullet-whipped water to gain the sand. And the bloody battle for Juno Beach begins.
