In partnership with the Canadian Battlefields Foundation, the Juno Beach Centre Association and the Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society, the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies is pleased to announce the Maple Leaf Route Webinar Series. Every two weeks from May to September, we will be following Canadian and British Commonwealth soldiers as they landed on D-Day in June 1944 and fought their way inland at the Battle of Normandy.
This nine-part series has three goals:
- To provide an alternative platform to raise awareness and foster interest in Canada’s military history in Europe
- To explore new directions in the study of Canada and the Second World War through discussions by established and emerging scholars.
- To highlight the many educational and commemorative activities of La Fondation, Juno Beach Centre Association and Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society in Canada and France.
Each of our remaining talks will be introduced by a CBF tour alumnus.
