In the cold dawn of Easter Monday on April 9, 1917, 100,000 soldiers get ready for Canada's largest WW1 attack. For three years, Vimy's German fortifications repeatedly threw back French & British assaults. It is now the Canadian's turn to brave the razor-edged barbed wire, knee-deep mud and withering machine gun fire. Four days and 10,000 casualties later, the Canadians stun the world by seizing the ridge in one of the war's most successfull and brilliantly planned offenses. Dramatically mixing archival footage with intensely realistic reenactments, The Battle Of Vimy Ridge powerfully recounts how the Canadians fought their way to victory. Divided into 4 parts to facilitate classroom use: Setting the Stage, Key's to Victory, The Battle Looms and The Battle Joined and Won. Narrated by Paul Gross.
