During the Second World War, on the 6thof June 1944, the Allies began their liberation of Western Europe by invading German-occupied France at Normandy under the code name Operation OVERLORD. At dawn, the 14,000 men of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division, supported by the 2nd Armoured Brigade landed on their beach, code named JUNO; and by the end of the day had made the farthest gains inland. The Normandy invasion paved the way for a complete Allied Victory culminating in Germany's unconditional surrender on 8 May, 1945 - VE-Day.
