This multimedia longread about a group of Westman veterans is the culmination of months of video interviews, international phone calls, and historical research. The project included a five-page spread in the paper and a series of mini documentaries. It went live on June 6, 2016 — the 72nd anniversary of D-Day.
I wrote the article, edited the videos (shot by Colin Corneau) and helped promote the project website (created by Andrew Nguyen). In September 2016, the project was awarded an EPPY Award for best news or event feature video and in March 2017, Knights of D-Day was nominated as a Canadian Association of Journalists awards finalist.
