[Casualties were light on Utah because the US troops were accidentally landed in the wrong place, and casualties on Omaha were appalling.] Juno was the most important of the five beaches because its objective was the Caen Crossroads. I should think that after Juno the Canadians felt that the disaster at Dieppe had been compensated, and they could stand equally with the US and Great Britain.
