📒D Day ✍ Lance Goddard
✏D Day Book Summary : Survivors. Vets. Comrades. A single day changed their lives forever. From the producer of the documentary Victory from Above, Lance Goddard's D-Day, Juno Beach: Canada's 24 Hours of Destiny is a montage of first-hand accounts, memories, and a pictorial archive of that day, sixty years ago. It captures all of the pride, patriotism, and collective will of Canadians who served and endured the horrific events of that day for a greater cause - for freedom, to defeat Hitler, to liberate Europe. From the beginning, at 0000 hours, to the end, 24 hours later, the voices of over thirty veterans unravel the battle with recollections, tactical details, and, often, self-effacing humour - but always at the very heart of Goddard's D-Day: Juno Beach, Canada's 24 Hours of Destiny, the message, sixty years later, is clear... lest we forget.
📒Juno Beach ✍ Mark Zuehlke
✏Juno Beach Book Summary : On June 6, 1944 the greatest armada in history stood off Normandy and the largest amphibious invasion ever began as 107,000 men aboard 6,000 ships pressed toward the coast. Among this number were 18,000 Canadians, who were to land on a five-mile long stretch of rocky ledges fronted by a wide expanse of sand. Code named Juno Beach. Here, sheltered inside concrete bunkers and deep trenches, hundreds of German soldiers waited to strike the first assault wave with some ninety 88-millimetre guns, fifty mortars, and four hundred machineguns. A four-foot-high sea wall ran across the breadth of the beach and extending from it into the surf itself were ranks of tangled barbed wire, tank and vessel obstacles, and a maze of mines. Of the five Allied forces landing that day, they were scheduled to be the last to reach the sand. Juno was also the most exposed beach, their day’s objectives eleven miles inland were farther away than any others, and the opposition awaiting them was believed greater than that facing any other force. At battle's end one out of every six Canadians in the invasion force was either dead or wounded. Yet their grip on Juno Beach was firm.

📒Juno Beach ✍ Tim Saunders
✏Juno Beach Book Summary : By June 1944, Juno Beach was a key part of Hitler's vaunted Atlantic Wall, with no less than four major strong points along its length. German pillboxes were sited to sweep the beaches with machine gun fire and were surrounded by belts of barbed wire and mines. Leading the attack were the 3rd Canadian Division, supported by the specialist assault tanks of the 79th Armoured Division (Hobart's 'Funnies'). Despite careful planning, poor D-Day weather led to a piecemeal landing and heroic individual battles in the streets of the seaside towns.
📒Juno Beach ✍ Patrick Ouellet
✏Juno Beach Book Summary : Spring 1944. After years of occupation, the inhabitants of Bernières-sur-Mer in Calvados watch out with impatience for the great landing that will free from the Nazi yoke. But, on D-Day, the Allied troops don’t launch an attack when or where the enemy prepared to receive them. And liberators are not the ones we expected.
📒The Juno Beach Trilogy ✍ Mark Zuehlke
✏The Juno Beach Trilogy Book Summary : Together in one convenient ebook, three of Mark Zuehlke's epics of Canadian soldiers in World War II take us from the dramatic events of D-Day (June 6, 1944) to the days following, and the final push. Juno Beach, Holding Juno and Breakout from Juno focus on the Normandy Invasion and its aftermath. Juno Beach dramatically unfolds as 18,000 Canadian soldiers storm the five-mile-long stretch of Juno Beach. At battle's end one out of every six Canadians in the invasion force was either dead or wounded. The Canadians were the only Allied troop to meet their objectives. Holding Juno chronicles the crucial six days following the successful invasion. The ensuing battle was to prove bloodier than D-Day itself. The Canadians made it possible for the slow advance toward Germany and an Allied victory. Breakout from Juno takes us to the next battle a month later. On July 4, 1944, the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division won the village of Carpiquet but not the adjacent airfield. The 3rd Division, 2nd Infantry and 4th Armoured Divisions -- along with a Polish division and several British divisions came together as the First Canadian Army. This is their story.
