Monument et Parc commémoratifs du Canada à Vimy honors a major World War I battle, the Battle of Vimy Ridge in 1917, which marked the first time Canada fielded an entire army of her own. Vimy was the only victory the Allies would enjoy during their 1917 spring offensive. The memorial contains a large number of stylized features, including 20 human figures, which help the viewer in contemplating the structure as a whole. The front wall, normally mistaken for the back, is 7.3 m (24 ft) high and represents an impenetrable wall of defense.
