Masters of War: The Canadians in the Great War
Monday, July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Development of the Canadian Corps from inexperienced Colonials to the most effective fighting force on the Western Front.
Norm Christie outlines the history of the development of the Canadian Corps from the early days in 1915-16 as inexperienced Colonials, to 1917-18 when they became the most effective fighting force on the Western Front. It started with Canada’s most famous battle at Vimy Ridge, when, against all odds, they captured the strongest German position on the Western Front. Who was responsible for these developments? How did they come about? How did this incredible transformation happen? Norm explains the players and their personalities that made it happen and how their success and confidence brought about changes that made the Canadians completely different to the British and Australian Armies
And how, after all their sacrifices and accomplishments, were they forgotten?
