    The Battle of the Scheldt was a series of military operations by the Canadian 1st Army. The battle took place in northern Belgium and southwestern Netherlands during World War II from October 2 to November 8, 1944. After five weeks of difficult fighting, the Canadian 1st Army—bolstered by attached troops from several other countries (the vast majority from the United Kingdom) —was successful in clearing the Scheldt after numerous amphibious assaults, obstacle crossings, and costly assaults over open ground. Both land and water were mined, and the Germans of the 15th Army defended their line of retreat with artillery and snipers.
