April 9, 2007 marks the 90th anniversary of the pivotal World War I battle - one that many historians view as the battle that defined Canada as a nation.

At Vimy Ridge, Canadian soldiers achieved what more experienced soldiers from Britain and France could not - taking the strategic position of Vimy Ridge from the Germans. It was the battle that helped a young country discover its national pride, as for the first time, Canadians fought as Canadians, and achieved a significant victory.

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.
