Success on D-Day and in the battles that followed came at a price: there are more than 5,400 Canadian graves in Normandy. But their sacrifice was not in vain. The victories won there paved the way to victory on May 8, 1945. For more information on D-Day and the Battle of Normandy, visit www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/feature/d-day/history.
