By June 1944, Juno Beach was a key part of Hitler's vaunted Atlantic Wall, with no less than four major strong points along its length. German pillboxes were sited to sweep the beaches with machine gun fire and were surrounded by belts of barbed wire and mines. Leading the attack were the 3rd Canadian Division, supported by the specialist assault tanks of the 79th Armoured Division (Hobart's 'Funnies'). Despite careful planning, poor D-Day weather led to a piecemeal landing and heroic individual battles in the streets of the seaside towns.

The acclaimed “Battleground” series from the renowned military publishers Pen & Sword provides an extensive range of titles describing specific battles, particularly during the two World Wars. Well written and illustrated with contemporary photos, drawings and maps, the books give much more detailed and vivid descriptions than found in more general titles, bringing the battlefields alive for visitors as well as informing and entertaining readers at home. Where appropriate, the guides include recommendations for visiting the memorials, cemeteries, monuments and museums by local walks and/or car tours and include recommendations for further reading.
