sep 5, 1944 - Liberation of the Netherlands
During the last months of the Second World War, the Canadian military was tasked with freeing the Netherlands from Nazi control. For eight months, the Canadians fought the Nazis until they agreed to let food and supplies to be brought to the Dutch people in fear that their leaders would be executed.
