In 9 days the 100,000 men of Canadian Corps broke through 5 successive German defensive lines and turned the main German position on the Western front. The tenacity of the Canadian attack and its execution surprised the enemy and from 26th August to the 3rd September 1918 it was a fight to the finish. The cost to Canada was 11,000 Canadian men killed, wounded and missing.” - from the back cover. Very good. 20.00
