An e-book edition of Canada and the Battle of Vimy Ridge, 9-12 April 1917 is currently available for download on the Directorate of History and Heritage website in both official languages.
Released for free by the Directorate of History and Heritage at the Department of National Defence and the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), the book is a 149-page document detailing the Battle of Vimy Ridge and those who fought in it.
Originally authored by Brereton Greenhous and Dr. Stephen Harris, the e-book version includes additional content from DND historian Jean Martin.
The hope is that the book can be used as an education resource for those looking to gain more knowledge about one of the most significant battles in Canadian military history, just in time for the Battle’s 100th anniversary.
“We are happy to re-release this book, and to draw attention to the new material exploring the relationship between soldiers of the Canadian Corps and the people of France among whom they lived for many months,” said Dr. Stephen Harris, Chief Historian and Acting Director, Directorate of History and Heritage.
