During World War II, Canada stood alongside its allies, summoning all its human, industrial and financial resources, and mobilizing the mightiest military force in its history. At sea, on land, and in the air, Canada was involved in the great campaigns that led to the fall of the German Reich and brought back peace.

Through short narratives and original archival photos, Juno Beach:
A Window on Canada in WWII tells the story of Canada's important role from 1939-1945. Juno Beach (a code-name thought up by an unknown planner) was the landing point for Canadian soldiers on June 6, 1944-D-Day. This offensive has since entered the history books as one of the nation's proudest military accomplishments.

In 2003, on the 59th anniversary of D-Day, Prime Minister Jean Chrétien, along with hundreds of World War II veterans and their families, opened the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer, France. The Juno Beach Centre is not only a memorial dedicated to the Normandy invasion, but also an educational facility recognizing all of Canada's military and civilian contributions during World War II.

Along with narrative and photographic accounts of Canadian soldiers who took part in World War II, this unique package includes an interactive CD-ROM containing a virtual tour of the Juno Beach Centre along with links to the companion website at www.junobeach.org.
