Description

The beaches codenamed Gold and Juno constituted the western section of the British sector of the landings.

This title explores the D-Day objectives for the troops landing on these two beaches, which included the capture of the town of Arromanches.

They were also tasked with the capture of Bayeux and securing the coast road between Bayeux and Caen.

The British 50th Division supported by 8th Armoured Brigade successfully fought their way off Gold, whilst the Canadians on Juno has a tougher time.

It could not however prevent the linking of Gold, Juno and Sword on 7 June securing the British beachhead.

The breakout could now begin.
