Canada’s historic battle in Normandy

On June 6, 1944, Canadian, British, and American forces made history as 156,000 soldiers landed on five beaches along 80 kilometres of the heavily fortified coast of France’s Normandy Region. This was one of the largest amphibious military assaults in history, and marks the beginning of the end of the Second World War.

In 2019, join Canadian youth and educators from across the country who will explore Canada’s past on our Historic Event Tours.
