It was the most fearsome enemy bastion of all. The English and French has tried to take it and failed. But on a chill Easter morning in 1917, the men of the Canadian Corps in France struggled up the shell-torn slopes of Vimy Ridge. Only two years before, they had been regarded as a band of unruly colonials. Now, with careful planning, skill and bravery, the Candians had earned the admiration of the world.
