Canadian Facts and Trivia - THE PEOPLE AND THE HISTORY
The image of the First World War as a futile conflict marked by hellish conditions of trench warfare amid cold liquid mud and unending rain was cemented at Passchendaele in Flanders.

Canadian forces arrived in Flanders in late 1917 to relieve other Allied troops who had been attempting to dislodge the Germans from the area for months with little success. Though the Canadians did prevail, the cost, 15,654 killed or wounded, was much higher than at Vimy earlier that year.
