A century after Vimy and Passchendaele
One hundred years ago this autumn, the four divisions of the Canadian Corps, the World War One victors at Vimy, were mired in the mud and ceaseless rain of Passchendaele, in Belgium. A year later, in 1918, World War One would end in an armistice. The 1918 year, however, would be the war’s bloodiest. The armistice between the Allied forces and the Central Powers that ended World War One came into force at 11:00 a.m. on Monday November 11, 1918. Read up on Canada’s role in World War One.
