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.
With historian Norm Christie as our guide, we explore the battlefields, cemeteries and monuments of World War I.
In their own words, the men who fought tell their stories, and we discover how the naïve amateur soldiers of 1914 became, by 1918, perhaps the most feared, efficient, and deadly allied corps on the western front.
