I started re-reading my grandfather's copy of Pierre Berton's Vimy a few nights ago, vaguely realizing the battle happened around this time of year. It has just worked out, by coincidence, that tonight I begin the chapter in which the four united Canadian divisions start their assault on the ridge. That day was April 9, 1917.

92 years later....
