For King and Empire: Canada’s Soldiers in the Great War is a six-part documentary series about the Canadian Army’s participation in World War I.
Moving north after the charnel house of the Somme, the Canadians plan for their most difficult operation of the war to date; the attack on the German fortress position of Vimy Ridge. Thought to be impregnable, the Canadians would have to plan and execute to perfection to snatch this vital position from the Germans. Nobody thought they could do it.
