The Monument at Vimy Ridge

Nothing can be more appropriate to add here than the magnificent monument to the achievement of Canada's volunteer soldiers of World War I. Dedicated in 1936, it's a symbol of bravery and of that rare thing, advanced military thinking outside the box, which led to a decisive victory. Afterwards, it is said, German soldiers were afraid of no one but Canadians.
