Operation AXIOM: The World War—The Nivelle Offensive, Part I
9-12 April 1917: The Battle of Vimy Ridge—The Canadian Corps assaulted the German defensive positions atop the escarpment, seizing the high ground overlooking the Arras battlefield; this was the first time all four Canadian divisions had fought together as a distinctive formation, Vimy Ridge becoming a prominent symbol of Canadian nationhood & achievement.

Lest we forget.
