Léo Major (1921 – 2008) grew up in a working-class neighbourhood in the French-speaking part of Montréal during the greatest economic crisis of the 20th century. In 1940, at the age of 19, he voluntarily enlisted in the Canadian army. He is assigned to the Régiment de la Chaudière and receives training as a connector in England. Here he befriends Welly Arseneault for life. On June 6, 1944 (D-Day), Léo and Welly land with thousands of other Canadians at Juno Beach on the Normandy coast. A story full of emotion: about nighttime reconnaissance, battlefield injuries, the loss of a friend and heroism.
