French forces suffered 150,000 casualties throughout 1915 in attempts to take control of Vimy Ridge from the Germans. In March, 1916, the British army relieved the French, but were driven back.

Sir Arthur William Currie led all four Canadian divisions, the first time the Canadians had fought together, achieving a superb victory. By April 12 the entire ridge was under Allied control.
