Dintelsas: temporary end to the Canadian advance




After the battle was won in Normandy, the 4th Canadian Armoured Division began its long march into Holland. In late October 1944, this Canadian unit became involved in Operation Suitcase, which aimed to drive the Germans out of the western part of North Brabant. The provisional end point for the division was to be the small port of Dintelsas near Dinteloord.
