Abstract:

Closely scrutinizes three military campaigns that involved thousands of Canadians--the defense of Hong Kong, the allied invasion of Normandy, and the massive aerial bombardment of Germany. In each film Canadian veterans return to their respective fields of battle, vividly relive their experiences and meet with the people they once fought against. Dramatic segments, based on true stories tell what occurred behind-the-scenes. The result is an insightful, emotional and sometimes shocking account of the terrible price Canadian soldiers and airmen paid in the march toward an allied victory. Closed captioned for the hearing impaired.
