100 days

During The WarThere was a series of attacks along the western front during the hundred days offensive during World War 1. Canada made many great contribution and sacrifices during the first World War. This offenisve also made Germany retreat and finaly surrender in November 1918. A large attack was planned in France in August and canadian troops moved north to Belgium. This shift made Germans think that there was going to be a major attack there. On August 8, Canada led the way by advancing 20km in three days. They started to attack. They were hoping for the war to end in 1918 so the Canadains kept up the hard work and kept attacking hard.
