Vimy Ridge was once probably the most vital geographic gains at the complete Western entrance in international conflict I (1914-1918). In early 1917 it was once thought of essentially impregnable, yet on nine April the Canadian military Corps, lower than the command of the British Lieutenant normal Sir Julian Byng, assaulted it as a part of the Arras offensive. in a single of the main fabulous operational assaults of the conflict, they seized virtually the whole ridge overnight.
