Vimy Ridge is surmounted by Canada’s most impressive tribute to its fallen soldiers. Our audio guide relates how Canadian forces seized the hill on Easter Monday 1917. Four Canadian soldiers were awarded Victoria Crosses in remarkably similar ways and we feature the story of Private William Milne. We also explain how sub-terrainian operations contributed to this stunning success of the Canadians and why over 3,000 miles of tunnels were dug during the course of the war.
