In June 1944, the Western Allies invaded the Third Reich in Operation Overlord, and Canada was a participant with its area of operations in Normandy, France designated Juno Beach. This film depicts the true stories of several Canadian soldiers in the invasion in its various aspects like the paratroopers, tank crews and regular infantry. Braving misfortune and ferocious German resistance, these Canadians fought to bring the fight to the Nazis in Western Europe at last.Written by

There have been some excellent canadian films recently about this country's contribution to various wars. Assault on Juno (2010) is something not to be missed. A great documentary drama depicting the events of the d-day invasion when our troops landed on Juneau beach. Surviving veterans - now octogenarians are interviewed after staging. Their emotions encompass pride, shame, sadness, nostalgia, and a kind of bewilderment. The assault on Juno plays out the specific events of people who have served in various divisions: the amphibious tank team, the amphibious assault team, the amphibious assault team, all set to achieve their goals in a gripping minute-by-minute story.Finally, Canada has been wonderfully presented, and the film sounds so true that all the parts that have been dramatized merge completely with the news reels. It's terribly moving, and if you don't have a stone instead of a heart, you just can't help crying at different times.
