The Hundred Days campaign (August 8 to November 11, 1918) contributed decisively to ending the First World War, and the Canadian Corps played a key role in the Allied victory.
Curated by Tim Cook and Jack Granatstein to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the end of the war, Victory 1918 – The Last 100 Days is a visual and evocative exhibition that weaves artworks, artifacts, documents, film and photos together with the powerful stories of Canadians who participated in this costly combat.
This exhibition is developed by the Canadian War Museum with the generous support of John and Elizabeth Irving.
The exhibition is also supported by Dr. John Scott Cowan and the Sir Joseph Flavelle Foundation.
