Operation Infatuate - The Battle of Walcheren

1st - 8th November 1944 Operation Infatuate - The Battle of Walcheren. Operation Infatuate was the code name given to an Anglo-Canadian operation during the Second World War to open the port of Antwerp to shipping and relieve logistical constraints.

The operation was part of the wider Battle of the Scheldt and involved two assault landings from the sea by the 4th Special Service Brigade and the 52nd (Lowland) Division. At the same time the 2nd Canadian Infantry Division would force a crossing of the Walcheren causeway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Infatuate http://www.combinedops.com/Walcheren.htm http://ww2today.com/1-november-1944-no-4-commando-in-assault-on-flushing
