It all began in April 1940, when Adolf Hitler decided to set his blitzkrieg across Western Europe. The blitzkrieg struck Denmark, and immediately the order was sent out to Canadian troops to board a ship to Norway.

It was now that Prime Minister Winston Chamberlain called for all ships, even just a fishing ship, to sail across the English Channel and rescue the troops. The operation succeeded beyond what was expected. Only 10 000 troops had been expected to be rescued, but 340 000 was the final tally. It was a miracle, and it shall be remembered by many for a very long time.U.S. Surprised by Pearl Harbour AttackBy: Matt M.
