By Andrew and Tony
The Scheldt is a major estuary in the Netherlands/Belgium border. The Canadians had to take it and they did with a mixed force ( mostly Canadian) of Australians , British and a bit of the Belgian resistance and took heavy casualties. It opened up the port but was rendered useless because of the estuary, any convoys that passed through would be picked of by German guns so they had to take the rest of the estuary but Canada needed more soldiers because of a enlisting crisis. In the end the allies won and got major shipping supplies to the front
On the 8th of December 1941 a armada of Japanese air force and 11 midget submarines(12 where originally launched but one was sunk by a American ship patrolling the waters surrounding the harbor) So the idea of it being a surprise attack is false the ship that sunk the midget sub called in that it sunk the submarine and the army command did nothing witch ended up costing 2,403 sailors there live and many others wounded
During June 1942
