This is a special miniseries to celebrate 150 years of Permanent Artillery since the formation of A and B Batteries, Royal Canadian Artillery.

Vimy Ridge is seen as the birth of the Canadian nation. It is a model of a well planned Corps attack. Well resourced, well planned and very well rehearsed we look to understand what went right at Vimy Ridge.

This episode details the planning for Vimy Ridge.

This follows on from our Bullecourt series. The Battle of Bullecourt occured 48 hours later and 30 km south of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. We will compare and contrast Vimy Ridge with Bullecourt to highlight to real cost of failing to correctly plan and resource an attack.

This is part of our 150th Anniversary of the Royal Australian Artillery series.
