Preliminary Bombardment- an awesome artillery barrage pounded enemy oppositions for two weeks before the attach on vimy ridge, with a concentration of one heavy gun for every 20 yards of front, one field gun for every 10 yeards of front, and an expenditure of more than a million rounds of ammunition // New Role for Machine Guns- the use of heavy machine guns was revolutionized at vimy ridge. before the attach, they effectively harassed the enemy's supply lines in the manner of an artillery barrage. during the advance, they provied withering covering fire /// Over the Top!- tense waiting broken by the word of command, the canadians launch their great offensive on vimy ridge. months of preparation preceded the big push. the ridge was tunnelled extensively to facilitate the movement of men and supplies. troops rehearsed the attach over tapes representing the german trenches // The Advance- the canadians move through the enemy's shattered barbed-wire defences. ahead of them, a superbly mounted and timed artillery barrage lifts forward as they advance
