"(C)ommemorates the seventy-fifth anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, when Canadian volunteers from every corner of the nation stormed the strongest natural fortress on the Western Front - one that had successfully withstood repeated French and British attacks over the previous two-and-a-half years. It was the first time that all four divisions of the Canadian Corps had attacked together, but it would not be the last. And before the war ended, Canadian courage and military prowess had won Canada substantial recognition in the Imperial War Cabinet and a seat at the peace conference in Versailles." From the preface by General A.J.G.D. de Chastelain. Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor corner wear, very small bump at bottom edge of front cover, small indentation on front cover. Very Good.
