During the 20th century, two generations of Canadians crossed the Atlantic to offer their support to threatened democracy in Europe, united with Britain through Commonwealth association. These soldiers distinguished themselves at Vimy during the Great War, then at Dieppe, Sicily, Normandy and later, Holland, during World War II. Canada was also active in defending the shipping lanes in the North Atlantic and the Canadian Merchant Navy completed over 25,000 voyages across the Atlantic between 1939 and 1945. Over the course of the World War II, 1.1 million Canadians served in the army, navy, and air force. Of these men, more than 45,000 lost their lives and another 54,000 were wounded. The suffering and the hardships of both wars affected many Canadians at home and abroad. This abundantly illustrated book tells the story of the Canadians' heroic contribution to the liberation of Europe.
