Canadian War Museum Presents: “Victory 1918–The Last 100 Days”

The Canadian War Museum will be featuring a new exhibit between October 26 2018 and March 31, 2019 to commemorate the Hundred Days Offensive and the end of the war. From CWM:

The Hundred Days campaign (August 8 to November 11, 1918) contributed decisively to ending the First World War, and the Canadian Corps played a key role in the Allied victory.

Curated by Tim Cook and Jack Granatstein to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the end of the war, Victory 1918 – The Last 100 Days is a visual and evocative exhibition that weaves artworks, artifacts, documents, film and photos together with the powerful stories of Canadians who participated in this costly combat.

You can also follow #Last100Days on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for further content (see @CanWarMuseum and @MusCanGuerre on Twitter and Instagram).
