    The total German casualties on D-Day are unknown, D-Day book are estimated as being between 4, men. Not only has he looked at the available archives in minute detail, he has walked every inch of the ground and also spoken to many of those who fought here decades ago when their memories were still comparatively fresh. Wounded U. Montgomery was in command of the Allied land forces. Canadian troops at Juno Beach captured the most territory.

    During the course of the campaign, one also sees, both vividly but subtly, the somewhat bewildered boy he was turn into a man and D-Day book increasingly experienced and competent commander and officer. Was Montgomery a hero or a hindrance? Just after midnight on June 6, British and American airborne forces landed behind the German coastal fortifications known as the Atlantic Wall. Casualties were less than men. The eyes of the world are upon you. Video: Guy Whidden, Paratrooper

    But although many other characters are equally well portrayed, from Churchill himself to US generals Bradley - with his specs and "hayseed expression" - and Patton, famous D-Day book his profanity, to Montgomery with his terseness and conceit, and De Gaulle with his arrogance and his long arms, it is the personal narratives of ordinary servicemen that drive this book. Soon after, warships began to bomb the beaches from the water. In the end, the Canadians at Juno captured more towns and territory than any other battalions in Operation Overlord. Alan Gratz will discuss "Allies" at Union Ave.

Similar to the Americans at Omaha Beach, the first lines of Canadian troops were gunned down en masse by Nazi artillery—estimates put the initial casualty rate at 50 percent—before pushing beyond the beachfront and chasing the Germans inland. Assisted by bombers and airborne troops, Operation Neptune, the first phase of Overlord, was the precursor to a campaign intended to drive the Germans out of France and the Low Countries.
