In this video:
Leo Major was a French Canadian man born in 1921. He probably didn’t think he was going to be more of a hero than the average soldier when he joined up with the Canadian Army at the start of World War II—supposedly he simply joined up because he wanted to show his father, with whom he had a shaky relationship, that he could do something to be proud of.

Now that you know the story of Leo Major and his balls of solid steel check out this video and find out about Forgotten History- The Battleship Built in Union Square:
Could you imagine this man with a death metal playlist and headphones 🤘🏼I feel like the rage in the music would just make him and fucking animal *carnifex* blaring major bites a guys cheek off screaming the blood keeps me warm!
Lee Majors went on to star in The Six Million Dollar Man and The Fall Guy, then he married Farrah Fawcett. Wow, what a life the guy led.
Okay, now come on with the dumb-ass, over the head (WOOOOSH) comments. And don't let me down.
He should of got 2 VC for his actions in in WW2 and another in Korea, man of balls of steel more like one man army , image him and mad jack Churchill omg they could of conquered the world together 💪🏻🇬🇧💥🇨🇦👊🏻
Glad to see you got to Leo Major in your series. It's a good thing he could reach inside himself and effect some anger management while under stress.
One can read between the lines that many of those German regulars saw the writing on the wall by 1944 and weren't going to resist a chance to be out of the war, even if they could only find one Canadian to usher them in the right direction.
Guess his plot armor was mighty strong... Yeah I am not religious but after this I am beginning to believe in a God who clearly put this guy as his main character in the world...either that or he was Chuck Norris's dad the world doesn't know of and Chuck Norris is actually adopted.
As a Canadian, I have so much to brag about from this video, but the kicker for me was the Korean War one:
Thousands of Americans vs. thousands of Chinese, America loses.
20 Canadians vs. thousands of Chinese, Canadians win.
The Spartans really said: "This is Leo Major!"
Tim Hortons turns your balls to steel.
It is vitally important you check your Canadians for authenticity, fake Canadians are a much bigger problem than most people realize. There are many methods of determining if your Canadian of choice, the simplest method being to punch him in the face and if he respond by apologizing for bruising your knuckles, he is almost certainly a real Canadian. However this method does not come without its draw back because of he happens to be a French Canadian lumberjack, he may run off with 12 other lumberjacks and hold a hill in North Korea against 14000 angry Chinese infantry, and that would prove to be embarrassing.
He declined a significant medal from Monty! I would love to hear that conversation when Monty’s general staff tells Monty about it. I wonder if he was in the US 3rd Army if he would accept a medal from General Patton? Patton would have loved him either way...
These stories like this are why I love this channel. Canadians liberated my mother's hometown of Groningen. They put a couple soldiers up in their home. Before that her school was the German Barracks at night. She can't relate stories without tears flowing to this day. I recorded an interview for a Warfare class Sac State. Rare glimpse into civilian life under Nazi occupation. I should publish it.
Canadians really are loved in The Netherlands. So few left who did so much against that bastard and his minions. Much honour to Canada! When will you folks get rid of your liberal idiot government? You are going to lose the freedoms you spilt blood for in Europe and elsewhere for strangers. Don't go down without a fight!
TheAKgunner Just like John Kerry’s 3 Purple Hearts, and the American snipers heroics?
I have no doubt this guy was a legitimate hero, (unlike Kerry) but the telling of his story just sounds very exaggerated. By the way here is some advice, don’t let Hollywood teach you history.
