The battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 saw Canadian troops storm a strategic 14-kilometre long escarpment that was believed to be impregnable. This was the first time in the nation's history that a corps-sized formation fought together as a unit under its own meticulous planning. Canadian troops persevered under heavy fire to take the ridge, demonstrating incredible discipline and bravery. The battle became a symbol of sacrifice for the young nation and a turning point in its role in the global theatre of war." Contents: Prologue; Introduction: The War to End all Wars; Innocence Lost; Trench Warfare; Easter Mourning; A Ridge Too Far; The 1st Division; The 2nd Division; The 3rd Division; The 4th Division; A Bitter Victory; Vimy's Heroes; Epilogue: The Vimy Memorial; Appendix: Letters from a Vimy Veteran.
