  • 100 days canadians push to end the war.

    canadians were never ones to brag, we were the best ww1 troops around but never said anything . the germains called us storm troopers . we spearheaded the end to the war when no one else could. after the war we just went back to a quiet life on the farm, forest or boat .

    Funny that the Australians say virtually the same thing.
    "I dogmatise and am contradicted, and in this conflict of opinions and sentiments I find delight".
    Samuel Johnson.
