A splendid piece of filmmaking." -
THE GLOBE AND MAIL
A three part Series of hour long films about Canadians and the Second World War
Part 1 - Turning the Tide
Turning the Tide takes us from the outbreak of war in September 1939 to June 1944, when the allied armies landed in Normandy to fight the Germans in history's largest seaborne invasion.
Part 2 - The Liberators
The Liberators accompanies Canadian soldiers from their D-Day landings on the shores of Normandy, up along the coast of northern France and into Belgium and Holland.
Part 3 - Endings and Beginnings
In Endings and Beginnings, veterans recount their memories of that epochal conflict, in combination with outstanding footage filmed by army cameramen at the front. VE-Day - victory in Europe - on May 8, 1945, saw the exuberant celebrations in Canadian cities, but there was still the war in the Far East to be won.
