“On an April night in 1945, [Canadian soldier, Léo Major] single-handedly chased the Germans out of the town of 50,000 souls, and Zwolle has never forgotten it....Major [PDF see p. 113] and another soldier, Cpl. Willie Arsenault, entered the German-held town on a reconnaissance mission sometime after sunset on April 13, 1945. The area was crawling with German occupiers, but many had gone to bed. Major returned at 9 the next morning and announced the town had been liberated, but that Arsenault had been killed.”
