The Battle of Moreuil Wood

This documentary project proposal presents the 1918 Battle of Moreuil Wood as a worthwhile subject for a historical documentary relevant to Canadians. This subject is also in keeping with recent interest in Canadian military history as demonstrated by this year’s federal initiatives to commemorate the role of Canada in the War of 1812.

Canadians do not know their military very well, typically drawing on US films and television for their appreciation and understanding of military culture and the profession of arms. I believe this particular moment in our military history serves well as a demonstration of the remarkable capabilities and distinctive character of the Canadian Horse Soldier that have persevered to manifest in our modern Armoured Regiments of today.
