See below for English description.

Après leur triomphe sur la crête de Vimy, les soldats canadiens deviennent les troupes d'assaut de l'armée britannique. Malgré les tirs d'artillerie féroces, les gaz toxiques et l'explosion de bombes d'artillerie, ils ouvrent la voie à la victoire, bataille après bataille. Le coût de leur sacrifice est énorme pour ce jeune pays. Cependant, de cette dure épreuve émerge un nouveau Canada.

Canadians earned the admiration of the world - and a reputation as soldiers who could get the job done - after their hard-won victory at Vimy Ridge. From that date in early 1917 until the Armistice in November 1918, they proved themselves again and again in legendary battles such as Passchendaele, Lens and the Hundred Days' offensive. De Vimy à la victoire documents their decisive battles to push back the German lines in the final years of the Great War. The book features a scrapbook design with sidebars and extended captions, and first-person accounts describing life at the Front. Includes numerous haunting photos and illustrations complemented by original maps.
