Did Vimy Matter? Does Vimy Matter? The Easter Monday battle of Vimy Ridge won by the Canadian Corps holds a special place in the Canadian memory of the Great War. Why? What is it about Vimy that makes it memorable? Should it be? Did it matter militarily? Politically? In terms of troop morale? Or were there other contributions by the Canadian Corps that deserve to be recalled on Remembrance Day?
