Normandy is one of the most unique corners of France, on the northern coast across the English Channel from Britain.  That location made the beaches of Normandy a place of history: the destination for thousands of Allied soldiers struggling to gain a foothold for the freedom of Europe and end the Second World War. 

In this video, we visit some of those famous Landing Beaches where Canadian, American and British soldiers launched that heroic battle that was the beginning of the end of WW2.  Join us at Canada's Juno Beach Centre, and US and British war memorials, battlefields and remnants of the war give visitors an emotional journey in the footsteps of history.
