The First World War was won in the last hundred days.

The Hundred Days campaign — a series of bitterly fought battles along the Western Front between August and November 1918 — contributed decisively to ending the war. The Canadian Corps, forever after marked as elite “shock troops,” played a key role in the Allied victory.

One hundred years after the end of the war, Tim Cook and J. L. Granatstein delve into this series of battles in a visual and evocative souvenir catalogue. Artworks, artifacts and historical photos are woven together with the powerful stories of Canadians who participated in this costly combat.
