Consisting of the Calgary Highlanders, the Black Watch, and the
French-speaking Regiment de Maisonneuve, the 5th Canadian Infantry Brigade
landed in France in early July 1944 as part of British General Bernard
Montgomery's Twenty-first Army Group. That summer, the brigade participated in
hellish battles in Normandy, including Caen and Verrieres Ridge. The 5th went on
to distinguish itself in Belgium, where it endured foul weather and fierce
resistance near Antwerp in October 1944, and ended the war with bloody
street-fighting in the towns of The Netherlands.
