Hill 70 was one the lesser known victories of the Canadian Corps. It was also Arthur Currie’s first battle as Commander of the Corps. It was a brilliant idea, well executed and an example of how Currie did what he needed to do regardless of what the British Generals instructed. It was not cheap; 10,000 were casualties.
