The Cinderella Campaign: First Canadian Army and the Channel Port Battles

In late August 1944 the Allies broke out of the Normandy beachhead and hopes ran high the war would be won before Christmas. But a series of missteps left their armies literally running out of gas well short of the German border. Left behind to clear up the mess, First Canadian Army turned in a series of hard fought battles to eliminate the strong German garrisons holding the ports of Le Havre, Boulogne, and Calais and several lesser ports on the French and Belgian coasts so they could be used to supply the Allied armies. This is the first major work to tell the story of this hard-fought campaign of September 1944.
