A Canadian soldier near Caen waits for a barrage to clear before advancing; Normandy, France - 25 July 1944
Canadian soldier with the UN peacekeeping force in Bosnia.
This Canadian UN soldier was manning a checkpoint on the road near Olovo. The UN was using the road to move food and supplies into the interior and they wanted to make sure the bridge wasn’t attacked. There were also two Muslim teenagers guarding the bridge for the Bosnian Army. They had Thompson machine guns with no ammo. I asked them what they planned to do with no ammo if some bad guys showed up and they said “run!”
