Description

June 6th, 2004 will mark the 60th anniversary of D-Day, when Canadians landed on Juno Beach. This outstanding book contains unpublished accounts of D-Day eyewitnesses and participants, and through their eyes we are able to see what it was like to live through the assault on Hitler's Atlantic Wall and the massive invasion that followed. Captivating photographs and memorabilia bring these stories to life, and the topic of Juno Beach works directly with school curriculum
