The 60's Project

September 29-30, 1944

Soviet forces land on Muhu Island as German forces withdraw from the nearby island of Saaremaa. Canadian forces give the Germans a 24-hour truce to allow civilians to be evacuated from Calais. The German garrison at Calais surrenders. Canadian attacks continue north and west of Antwerp. To the south, German forces launch localized attacks against the US 3rd Army. The last cross-channel gun was silenced, ending nearly four years of harassment of the area around Dover.
