This volume deals with the development of the Canadians, from a devastated force after the Somme, to a well-oiled machine ready to take on the strongest German position on the Western Front, Vimy Ridge. On April 9th, 1917 the Canadians struck, and won a fantastic, if improbable, victory at Vimy where they knocked out the Germans before they even knew the fight was on. It was a legendary performance, of International and National significance. Asides in the book include: Mining Warfare, Pilgrimage to Vimy 1936, and The Make-up of an Army.
