Canada on D-Day: Operation Overlord
2014 marked the 70th anniversary of the Normandy landings. Canadian soldiers, sailors, and airmen played a phenomenal role that day.
Honorary Captain Bill Wilson of the Royal Canadian Navy, who was there as an anti-aircraft gunner on HMCS Ottawa, guides us through the unparalleled events of June 6, 1944.
Valour Canada also has a wide variety of D-Day specific articles, from on-the-ground,
in-the-air, or at-sea perspectives, in our Military History Library.
