Tug of War
The Allied Victory That Opened AntwerpBook - 2000
Antwerp, Leopold Canal, Woensdrecht, Breskens Pocket, Walcheren Island -- these place names live on in the memories of World War Two veterans of Canadian infantry and armoured divisions who fought in the mud and wet against an unbending enemy. It was 1944 and the Canadian army, with divisions from the U.K., U.S., and Poland, had been given the difficult tasks of liberating the port of Antwerp and clearing both banks of the Scheldt River, which leads into Antwerp. The bitter Battle of the scheldt lasted 86 days, and took the lives of more than 12,000 Allied soldiers.
