H-Hour, Normandy 1944 presents the latest series of work by photographer Leslie Hossack. This story starts on June 6th, 1944 when Canadian troops landed on Juno Beach at 7:45, H-Hour. It goes on to explore structural remains of the Atlantic Wall  - giant bunkers and fortifications, now largely hidden by the blowing sands of the D-Day beaches. It also commemorates individual grave markers of the soldiers killed in 1944 and buried in the Canadian, American, British, and German cemeteries scattered throughout Normandy.

This catalogue of Leslie Hossack's work is divided into four sections:Juno Beach, Atlantic Wall, Official Telegrams, and War Graves. In addition to over 70 images, the book also includes Hossack's personal writings, a foreword by David Bercuson, curatorial essays by Joanne Stober and Lindsey Sharman, and an annotated list of further reading related to H-Hour, Normandy 1944.
