Canada's Heroic Defence of the D-Day Beaches, June 7-12, 1944
At D-Day's end, the Canadians, who had landed on Juno Beach, were six miles inland -- the deepest penetration achieved by Allied forces on this infamous day. But every soldier on this front line knew worse was yet to come. For in the darkness the Germans were massing, intent on throwing them back to sea. With dramatic intensity, Holding Juno re-creates the ensuing battle and ultimate Canadian triumph and includes fascinating first-person soldier accounts as well as photos and maps.
