Canada's contribution to World War 2 was more logistical than their contribution to World War 1. They supplied food, ammunition and other necessities to the soldiers. In World war 1, they contributed by fighting along the Western Front with the help of the French and British troops. They fought against the Germans along the Western Front.
During a war, a "front" is a place where armies are fighting battles. In World War I, most of the major battles were in Europe. So in World War I, "Western Front" refers to the front in the western portion of Europe- it was mainly in northern France, where Germany had invaded. The "Eastern Front" was in Eastern Europe, primarily around the borders between Russia and Germany/Austria-Hungary.
Are you referring to World War I or World War II? In World War I, Germany was the reason for the opening of the Western Front, by the invasion of Belgium in order to attack France. In World War II, Germany, again, was the reason for the opening of the Western Front. First, they attacked Denmark and Norway (which would be more considered a Northern Front) which was the first contact of German and Allied troops (the British deployed into Norway, but retreated). The Germans then attacked the Benelux countries and France, all falling in a matter of weeks. In both world wars, the initial front was the Eastern Front (on a German standpoint).
VE (Victory in Europe) Day was May 8, 1945.8/9 may 1945 in europeMay 8, 19458th May 1945On May 8, 1945, Germany surrendered on the Eastern Front to the advancing Soviets. On May 7, they had surrendered to Britain and US on the Western front. The last German troops held out in Prague until May 11, 1945.
Once the allies successfully invaded Europe, this forced Germany to divert more troops from the Eastern Front to the Western Front. Until this happened with Operation Overlord, the Russians handled the brunt of the German war effort. They pressured the other allies to attack Europe as soon as possible to ease their losses and force German to divide and weaken its forces.
