First of all, Vimy Ridge was just one of many BATTLES, that took place during The First World WAR. A Battle lasts for a few hours or days, a WAR lasts for years. The First World War lasted for 4 years, from 1914 to 1918, which was about 90 years ago.
The second thing that you have wrong is WOMEN. There were NO WOMEN involved in the fighting at VIMY RIDGE. NONE. All of the soldiers in that war were MEN. Women had a MINOR role far behind the trench lines as nurses in field hospitals. They helped to care for the wounded men and assisted the Doctors in the operating rooms. They did NOT carry or use weapons at all.
The attack on VIMY RIDGE was a 100 percent Canadian event. Previously, both the British and the French armies had been defeated in their attempts to take the ridge from the Germans. The Canadians spent 3 months rehearsing the attack and every man had his own job to do, on a time schedule. This was the first time that such planning had been applied to an attack in this war.
The attack began on Monday April the 9th of 1917, at 5 o'clock in the morning. Four divisions of Canadians, totaling one hundred thousand men got up out of their trenches, and started to walk towards the ridge, following their artillery barrage. It took less than half a day to beat back the Germans and to hold the entire ridge. This was a major victory for the Canadian army and it was the first time that the entire Canadian Corps had fought as one complete unit.
The victory was not cheap, it cost over 7,000 Canadian dead and a further 12,000 wounded. The War went on for another full year and a half, until in November of 1918 the Germans were finally defeated and they signed a surrender agreement. Because of the great victory at VIMY RIDGE, Canada was one of the victorious nations who shared in the celebrations at the end of the war.
Canada was now considered, by the rest of the nations of the world, to be a full and separate country of its own, no longer a colony of Britain, no longer having to ask for permission to do things, from Britain. Canada earned that right thru it's bloodshed and bravery in the First World War, and the greatest Canadian victory, and there were many of them, was at VIMY RIDGE, in France.
Two hundred acres of French land at VIMY RIDGE is now the site of the VIMY memorial. This land was given to Canada, by the French Government to show their appreciation for the Canadians part in defeating the Germans. A huge set of statues and a memorial wall stands to honour the men who died there.
They sent many troops over to fight for the British and French but are best known for their effort at Vimy Ridge. The Allied forces had been trying to take Vimy Ridge since the beginning of the war but wasn't able to. Canadian forces and only Canadian forces came up with a plan of attack and took Vimy Ridge and held it for the rest of the war. It is known as one of the biggest turning points in the war. Canadians also fought in other battles such as Passchendaele, but are best known for Vimy Ridge.
Yes they were actually a pretty powerful force in WWI. They sent many troops over to fight for the British and French but are best known for their effort at Vimy Ridge. The Allied forces had been trying to take Vimy Ridge since the beginning of the war but wasn't able to. Canadian forces and only Canadian forces came up with a plan of attack and took Vimy Ridge and held it for the rest of the war. It is known as one of the biggest turning points in the war. Canadians also fought in other battles such as Passchendaele, but are best known for Vimy Ridge.
During the Battle of Vimy Ridge 3,598 Canadians were killed and 7,004 wounded. It was a huge success and marked the first time all four Canadian divisions of the Canadian Expeditionary Force fought together as a single unit, and since then it has been widely accepted that the battle was the birth of Canada's national identity.
The Canadian army fought alongside the British army on many fronts, the most known being the battle of Somme, Paschendale, Ypres, and Vimy. Vimy is the most renowned military exploit of Canada, where Canada used state-of-the-art shells combined with the rolling barrage strategy to regain the Vimy ridge in a very short amount of time.
watched the minless violance They did a lot in the war. They were a part of the Triple Entente. They captured Vimy ridge (using the creeping barrage tactic), which was something that many other large countries tried but failed to do. After Vimy Ridge Canada began to get some credit from the rest of the world. People realized that Canadians were good fighters. Canada was involved in the battle of the somme and the battle at ypres. (Others too i just don't remember them right now.)
Canadians took ground others could not, it made most of Canada very proud. But it was done under British command. When it came time to fight in WWII we fought under our own command, as Canadians. Canada and Canadians have a very deep and proud military history. Vimy is just one example of many but it is the one many can recall.
Canada was granted its independence as a Dominion by Great Britain on July 1st, 1867, many years before the start of World War 1 in 1914. However, it was at the Battle of Vimy Ridge that Canada's new identity was forged in the eyes of the world. Despite out independence from Britain in 1867, we were still viewed as a colony of Britain, and it was at Vimy Ridge that we proved to the world that we could operate without British support, and gained acceptance and respect in the international community.
Women working in factories to produce the ammmunition to help in the war..this was important because Women suddenly were allowed to work..and not just allowed to..they were NEEDED. this had never happend before . also.. many Canadian volenteers helped gain victory..(more troops) ..the battle of Vimy Ridge...also..Conscription helped when volenteers stopped volenteering (when you were forced by the government to fight for your country)
he believed it because he did. and that is that He believed conscriptionwas necessary because it was a numbers war. After the battle of Vimy Ridge(?) or Passchaedeale(?) and loosing so many soldiers he belived that it was necessary to enforce a law that would make all of the elligable men for fighting, because it was a war of attrition
