A good read. Takes time to follow a number of individual Canadians, airmen, sailors and soldiers. Touches on Dieppe, as it influenced overlord. Tells the story of the Canadian memorial in Normandy as the final chapter. As a study of the progress of the big picture on Juno beach it is not great. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it for general readers, in particular. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887621333, Hardcover)

On June 6, 1944, nearly 15,000 Canadians - at sea, in the air, and on the ground - joined the long-anticipated D-Day invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe on the Normandy beaches. The piece of ground on which the Canadians fought so hard against heavily armed and embedded German troops was codenamed Juno. On that day, the Candian infantry fought their way farther inland than any other Allied troops. For Canada, and all Canadians, this was a coming of age, an extraordinary moment of courage and sacrifice. On the eve of the 60th anniversary of D-Day, Barris takes us back to those momentous few hours that forever changed the course of our history in the voices of those who were there. In what might be described as Canada's longest day, we follow the course of action hour by hour, minute by minute, as we meet and follow the soldiers who leapt off landing craft into the shallow waters off Normandy, who were strafed by machinegun fire before they could even reach the shore.
