Canadian Battlefields of the Second World War
Dieppe, D-Day, and the Battle of Normandy
This guidebook offers an introduction to the strategic, operational and tactical aspects of the Dieppe Raid and the Normandy campaign plus information on accommodation, museums, memorials and other points of interest. The battlefields of the Second World War have long played an important part in the collective memory and imagination of Canadians. This guide is intended to encourage a new generation to set out on their own journey not just to the iconic landing beaches, memorials and museums but to the villages and fields where young Canadians fought to free France from the yoke of Nazi tyranny.
