canada and the brutal battles of the somme

The Battle of the Somme lasted 141 days, from July 1 to Nov. 18, 1916. It levied more than a million casualties, including more than 24,000 Canadians and 700 Newfoundlanders. It stands among history’s most notorious battles. To many, it is the poster child of the Great War’s staggering waste and appalling failures. But for the Canadian Corps, the Somme was a coming of age, setting the stage for their seminal victories to follow.

First World War collection

We cannot forget the First World War. Even though more than 90 years have passed since the guns fell silent, we are still shocked by the savagery of that conflict. The butcher’s bill worldwide was 10 million combatants, with countless more millions of civilians perishing through starvation, violence and even genocide. For Canada, a Dominion of the British Empire, with a population of fewer than eight million and not yet 50 years old at the start of the war, the country paid a terrible price. More than 60,000 Canadians were killed in the cataclysm from 1914 to 1918.

Second World War collection

The Second World War, which lasted six years from 1939 to 1945, totally involved the Canadian people. The nation’s men and women served in huge numbers, 10 per cent of the population of 11 million putting on uniform. Millions more worked in war plants, in the mines and fields, and in the bureaucracies supporting the government.
