CMSS and the Zentrum Für Militärgeschichte Und Sozialwissenschaften Der Bundeswehr, Germany, are cosponsoring a major conference on Vimy Ridge for April 20-22, 2017, to mark the 100th anniversary of the battle of Vimy Ridge, located at the University of Calgary.

It has often been claimed that the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 1917 was not only Canada’s greatest feat of arms, but marked its birth as a nation. The sessions will examine the battle and the myth – from both sides of the ridge.
