The Canadian Corps; from volunteers in 1915 to the most ruthless and efficient fighting force on the Western Front in 1918

Lost Battlefields

Host: Norm Christie, Producer Director: Peter Williamson

A supplemental documentary to For King & Empire

Norm Christie visits the battlefields and visits the cemeteries and memorials that commemorate the sacrifices of Canadians at Mount Sorrel and Hill 70. These two battles, which were not covered in For King & Empire, cost Canada 5,000 dead, but few remember their names.

They were two vital battles that contributed to the ongoing development of the Canadian Corps. These battles were key turning points transforming the Canadian Corps from the enthusiastic volunteers of 1915 to the most effective fighting force on the Western Front in 1918.
