Interested in hearing the WWII stories from the perspective of those who lived it?

WAR STORY is a new television series for the History Channel featuring little-known stories of Canadians in combat, told entirely by the men and women who were there. Each episode of War Story tells the story of an extraordinary military event where Canadians made the difference. War Story reveals the horror and heroism of battle and survival as never before as it looks behind
the headlines and slogans, exposing the very human side of conflict: the victories and the cost, the love and loss.

You can watch episodes of War Story online at http://www.warstory.ca/all-stories.php or by tuning in to the History Channel Friday evenings at 8.

Included among those featured on the series are, Louise Johnson, former DIL employee and Honourary Patron for the Legacy Campaign as well as Queenie Curnoe, former employee at Victory Aircraft during the Second World War. Both of these women played an essential role in war factories which proved significant to secure Allied victory.
