3rd Canadian Infantry is an Allied Mechanized division in Steel Division II, available as part of the Back to War pack.

Storming Juno Beach in the face of strong German resistance, the 3rd Canadian Infantry was the only allied division to achieve all of its D-Day objectives, also managing to penetrate further inland than any other division that day. True to the reputation of their WW1 forefathers, the Canadian infantrymen were regarded by their enemies as the "Stormtroopers of the British Empire".

Its commander, Rodney Keller, was considered a soldier's general, outspoken and caring for the lives of his men, Keller led his division further inland on D-Day than any other, despite German resistance being strongest in his sector, but for Omaha Beach. 'Rod' Keller started the war as a colonel, before quickly rising through the ranks with the expansion of the Canadian armed forces.

Given command of the untested 3rd Canadian Infantry Division in September 1942, in just two years he transformed this motley collection of recruits into a cohesive and professional fighting force, which demonstrated its skill on D-Day by performing better than any other assault division, despite heavy odds.

But the strain of combat took its toll on Keller, and he was soon regarded (including by himself) as unfit for command. Wounded by friendly fire in August, he was replaced as the head of his division, never to return to active duty.
