Follow the First Canadian Army in Belgium and across the Netherlands during the Fall of 1944 as the Allies tried to dislodge the Germans from the vital Scheldt Estuary to open the strategic port of Antwerp. Discover how grim and difficult this wet campaign was for the Canadians, but also how important it became to continue the advance towards Germany. A unique multimedia lecture by Dr. Stéphane Guevremont with rare photos and videos.
