The Battle that Defined a Nation
Special video produced by Legion Magazine – used by permission
Prince George, B.C. – At 5:30 am, on April 9th 1917, the battle to take Vimy Ridge began, and it was a battle that would be considered a defining moment for Canadians.
Legion Magazine has produced the video to commemorate the 100th anniversary of this battle and we have embedded it for your viewing.
While 250News is aware the narrator erred in pronouncing the word Lieutenant, instead of the Canadian pronunciation (lef-tenant) that should not, in any way, diminish the magnitude of this important chapter in Canadian history. We hope you take a few minutes to watch and to pay respect to those who fought, and those who fell.
