D-Day: Montreal had a part

Lots in the media Thursday for the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Metro has a piece on Montreal’s part in the war effort, both from a military and an industrial point of view.

The Journal has a summary of the massive battle in numbers, with almost as a footnote the reminder that a lot of Hitler’s forces were tied up on the eastern front while this went on. It’s easy to forget, while the west pats itself on the back, that Russia did at least half the work.
