The Western Front Association: The Transformation of the Canadian Corps

Post by BFBSM » Tue Jun 29, 2021 1:11 am

In this talk, Bill Stewart talks about the capture of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 which is the best known and most celebrated Canadian victory of the First World War. Whilst this presentation provides an overview of the battle and its preparations, its primary focus will be on the changes made by the Canadian Corps, like the larger BEF, to dramatically transform its doctrine and approaches between the Somme and Arras 1917 to deliver this triumph.
