Between 1939 and 1945, over 1.1 million Canadians served in army, navy, and air forces across the globe. Canadians contributed significantly to home defence, the production of war materials, the training of aircrews, the protection of shipping convoys across the Atlantic, the United Kingdom’s defence, the bomber war over Europe, and land, air, and sea action in Asia, the Mediterranean region, Northwest Europe, and Germany.
