Canada's 100 Days Offensive and the End of the First World War

The final Allied offensive that ended the First World War and the central role that Canadians played in it has been a forgotten part of our history. Retired artilleryman and historian Robert Poirier will discuss the Canadian Corps participation in the Hundred Days offensive, the arrival of armistice in Canada and overseas, and the return of the troops home. Born and raised in Kenora, Robert Poirier was commissioned into the Royal Canadian Artillery and served in Canada and overseas for 29 years. He has an MA from the Royal Military College.
