The Cinderella Campaign: First Canadian Army and the Channel Port Battles
Breaking out of the Normandy bridgehead in late August 1944, the Allies hoped to win the war before Christmas. Instead, a series of miscalculations saw their armies literally running out of fuel for lack of major ports through which to bring in desperately needed supplies. It fell to First Canadian Army to win those ports while being given scant resources to do so. The Cinderella Campaign will be the first major work to tell the story of First Canadian Army’s heroic fight to open Le Havre, Boulogne, and Calais in September 1944.
