Library and Archives Canada: Database of 620,000 First World War personnel files completed to mark anniversary of Canada’s 100 Days. “August 8, 1918, is commonly known as the beginning of ‘Canada’s 100 Days’ — when the Canadian Corps spearheaded attacks that became known as the Battle of Amiens, a major turning point that led to victory in the Great War and the Armistice of November 11. To mark the centennial of the end of the First World War and the heroic and tragic events that led up to it, we are pleased to announce the completion of the digitization of all Canadian military personnel records from the Great War.”
