The Battle and the Legend

Unknown - 2017
Rate this:
Why does Vimy matter? Tim Cook, Canada's foremost military historian and a Charles Taylor Prize winner, examines the battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 and the way the memory of it has evolved over 100 years. Vimy is unlike any other battle in Canadian history: it has been described as the birth of the nation. But the meaning of that phrase has never been explored, nor has any writer explained why the battle continues to resonate with Canadians.
