Explore the lasting impact of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, 100 years later. This souvenir catalogue explores how perceptions of Vimy have evolved over the past century from a tactical battlefield victory in France to a nation-defining event. Understand the larger context of the Franco-British offensive—the preparation, the defenders, the capture of the ridge and its consequences. Then take a step back to examine the evolving memory of the battle in Canada over the last 100 years. It is a potent reminder of how we construct our past and shape our present through acts of commemoration.
