Governor General's Literary Award-winner Vern Thiessen takes his characters, drawn from a spectrum of Canada's regions and peoples, and shows how the battle has redefined them. Coming from different perspectives through the eyes of five people, we perceive why we fight and what we fight for. Vimy is an impressive elegy on the healing power of memory.
