Monday marks the 72nd anniversary of D-Day. On June 6, 1944, 14,000 Canadians stormed the beaches at Normandy, France as part of a coalition Allied Force that is believed to have turned the tide of the Second World War. Canada sustained more than one thousand casualties that day, including 359 killed. We spoke with Captain Steven Dieter – Military Historian and a Public Affairs Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces about the significance of D-Day.
