Juno Beach
JJuno Beach was one of five Allied invasions of German-occupied France in Normandy on 6 June 1944. This battle consisted of Canada and the United Kingdom against Germany. During this war The allies suffered 359 dead, 574 wounded, and only 47 men captured. On the first day on the Juno Beach invasion. Canada was very Unprepared losing most of their men on the first day. When they got to the beach there was no artillery or tanks on the beach supporting them. All the tanks but 1 that had launched from the ships had either sank or got lost due to extreme weather conditions. Also, when they got onto the beach there was no where to hide, just an open beach. But after some troops got out of the water and up off the beach, they found a way to take out the pill box, and get behind enemy lines. Ultimately  The allies ended up wining the first day by taking 73 prisoners and killing 35 Germans.                                                    


  1. Good job pal, what do you think would have happened if the Germans had of won instead of the allkies?

    1. Instead of just asking the question, you could provide your thoughts.

  2. How were the soldiers able to take out the pill box?

    I don't think that the Canadians were unprepared for the invasion. Military strategists knew that there would be a large loss of life in the early days of the invasion.

  3. Do you think that Canada was the most effective allied country to attack Normandy?
