In the early hours of June 6, Allied paratroopers, including 450 Canadians, jumped from aircraft or landed in gliders behind the German coastal defences. The Royal Canadian Navy provided 109 vessels and 10,000 sailors as its contribution to D-Day. By the end of D-Day 15,000 Canadian troops had been landed.
