OTTAWA, May 27 /CNW Telbec/ - June 6th, 1944 is well-known as the day the
Allies landed on the beaches of Normandy. To mark the 65th anniversary of this
monumental event, The War Amps is re-releasing three one-hour documentaries
from its internationally award-winning Military Heritage Series.
D-Day: The Story of the Canadian Assault Troops tells of the achievements
of Canadians, who got further inland on D-Day than any of the other forces in
Normandy. The story continues in Operation Charnwood: The Canadian Battle for
Caen, depicting the battle to dislodge the Germans from Caen. Take No
Prisoners is the chilling story of more than 130 young Canadians who were
taken prisoner and murdered by the 12th SS Hitler Jugend in Normandy.
The War Amps has also produced a two-minute vignette called Juno Beach,
which is based on the full-length D-Day documentary. It can be viewed on The
War Amps Web site at waramps.ca/dday_juno/home.html.
Produced by War Amps CEO and D-Day veteran Cliff Chadderton, and funded
by corporate donations, the documentaries and vignette will air on regular,
specialty and community channels on and around June 6th. The documentaries are
also available at a cost-recovery price of $12 each (DVD or VHS) by calling
1-800-250-3030 or visiting waramps.ca.
As an additional commemoration, Mr. Chadderton has launched a special
section on his blog (cliffchadderton.ca) which gathers together his previous
entries related to D-Day and he will continue to add new entries through the
D-Day and Normandy Campaign anniversary period.
