The beaches of Normandy were the only viable landing points for the Allied Forces. At the same time, it was acknowledged that this section of the French Coast was heavily fortified and the authorities realised that the use of conventional tactics such as combined tank and infantry would not prevail. A solution was proposed by the brilliant, eccentric General Hobart which involved the creation of special assault vehicles (avres). Our hero is a driver of one of these tanks - his job to pave a way through minefields, barbed wire and anti tank trenches, allowing the Canadian Infantry through. Highly dangerous and truly heroic, this is one of the great untold stories of World War II.
