Lors de la bataille de Vimy, les Canadiens ont r#65533;alis#65533; ce que soldats fran#65533;ais et britanniques, pourtant plus exp#65533;riment#65533;s, n'avaient pas su faire. Ils ont vaincu les Allemands et pris la position strat#65533;gique de la cr#65533;te de Vimy. C'#65533;tait la premi#65533;re fois que des soldats canadiens combattaient au nom de leur pays. La bataille de Vimy a favoris#65533; le d#65533;veloppement d'un sentiment de fiert#65533; chez les Canadiens #65533; l'#65533;gard de leur jeune nation et cela, m#65533;me si la victoire s'accompagnait d'un sombre bilan : 10 000 soldats morts ou bless#65533;s au combat. En France, sur les lieux de la bataille, le Parc comm#65533;moratif du Canada #65533; Vimy est un hommage #65533; la c#65533;l#65533;bre bataille d'avril 1917.

A true story of war, but a touching story of Canadian bravery too. A REAL must read!

For a non-fiction book, it had many interesting pictures and quotes. It was a bit long, would be great for research. It kept me interested about the battle.
