The fascinating story of the conception, design, construction and recent restoration of the hauntingly beautiful First World War memorial at Vimy Ridge. A mix of historic and recent photographs illustrates the text and evokes a sense of scale, emotion, and importance of the monument and its surrounding landscape. A testament to Canada’s commitment to commemorate the sacrifice of almost 60,000 Canadian soldiers during the First World War, Vimy: Canada’s Memorial to a Generation traces the history of the monument at Vimy Ridge, from the inception of the idea as early as 1919, through to the restoration of the monument in the early 2000s.
