The First World War was won in the last hundred days.
The Hundred Days campaigna series of bitterly fought battles along the Western Front between August and November 1918contributed decisively to ending the war. The Canadian Corps, forever after marked as elite 'shock troops,' played a key role in the Allied victory.
One hundred years after the end of the war, Tim Cook and J. L. Granatstein delve into this series of battles in a visual and evocative souvenir catalogue. Artworks, artifacts and historical photos are woven together with the powerful stories of Canadians who participated in this costly combat.
