On Easter Monday 1917 with a snow fall blowing of their faces, the 4 divisions of the Canadian Corps in France seized and held the best-defended German bastion at the Western entrance - the muddy scarp of Vimy Ridge. The British had did not take the Ridge, and so had the French who had misplaced 150,000 males within the try out. but those really good colonial troops did so in a morning on the fee of in simple terms 10,000 casualties.
