This Canadian military history story details the rise of Citizen soldier, Sir Arthur Currie. For 100 years Canada's role in ending WWI sooner than anyone thought possible has gone largely unrecognized. The Canadian Corp on the Western Front in WWI led by Currie, became the premiere allied fighting force. The fact that Canada was not yet a formalized nation but a Dominion at the close of the war may be the reason for the absence of recognition yet the record of the Canadian WWI military accomplishments is irrefutable. Currie took over command of the Corp after the ill conceived Somme operation and executed a brilliant strategy which led to Canada's greatest military triumph of WWI at Vimy Ridge. Canadian soldiers unlike British "city boys" hailed from hard scrabble farms and logging camps. Their natural survival and hunting instincts were exactly what the Great War required.
