Canada Remembers - Part One - Turning the Tide
Film  (53:40) 1995, director: Terence Macartney-Filgate
Description
Men and machines begin the move down to the Channel coast of England. Naval vessels gather, air raids are mounted on German positions and routes of supply. The long-awaited D-Day invasion is about to begin. The camera pans the faces of Canadian soldiers, sailors and airmen who traveled across the ocean to play their part in the fight. Meanwhile, the wives and children they left behind have found their own way to become part of the war effort--by joining up themselves, or by going to work in the factories and shipyards. 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. Among the landmark events of the years between, covered by combat cameramen, are the Battle of Britain, the tragic raid on Dieppe, the landing in Sicily, and the battle for Ortona. Interspersed with archival footage are the vivid memories of men and women who recall life during the war years. Part one of the series.
