    Greetings ladies and gentlemen.

    A few important battles in WWI were won due to Canadian troops, or with major help coming from the Canadian Corp. (Well, at least from what we can see on the CBC and Historia channel.) So I decided to make a serie of threads about our different victories in WWI. Here is the second one : Passchendaele.

    Taken from : Battle of Passchendaele - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Sort of "in topic" but Iron Maiden made a song called Passchaele that is a tribute to the battle.

    Yes, but it was Iron Maiden {now if it had been a Madonna song he'd be walkin' the plank... :shock:}


    I watched the History channel on WWI, it's just unbelievable what they went through.

    Same here. It was definitely a nightmare of a war. And my post had a key word in it.;)
