On June 4, 2019, the official Government of Canada delegation for the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy attended the unveiling of the Chambois Canadian Monument in Chambois, France. The Battle of Chambois was fought in August, 1944 during the Second World War’s Normandy Campaign. The seizure of Chambois by Canadian, American and Polish forces led to the closure of the Falaise Pocket on August 21, 1944, which led to the destruction of most of Germany’s Army Group B in Western Europe.
