Publisher's Summary

At D-Day's end, the Canadians, who had landed on Juno Beach, were six miles inland - the deepest penetration achieved by Allied forces on this infamous day. But every soldier on this front line knew worse was yet to come. For in the darkness the Germans were massing, intent on throwing them back to sea. With dramatic intensity, Holding Juno re-creates the ensuing battle and ultimate Canadian triumph and includes fascinating first-person soldier accounts as well as photos and maps.

Audible Editor Reviews

As the time between the present and World War II grows, so, too, does the importance of remembering the details of what transpired in one of the world's greatest tests. Though much has been made of D - Day, for Canadian soldiers the six days following would prove to be their true test of mettle. The gritty and masculine delivery from accomplished narrator, Kyle Munley, in this audiobook by Mark Zuehlke puts listeners right on Juno Beach as Canadian soldiers advance on German forces and help make way for the eventual Allied victory. With intense first - person accounts combined with precise factual details, Holding Juno proves again why Zuehlke is one of Canada's leading historical writers.

Spoilt by narration

For me the narration is far too "americanized" and is also strangely stilted in delivery; hence the very low rating from me? This is a great shame for the author and story (which if read with more feeling & accuracy would probably rate 5 stars from me).
