I think this guy said it best, British Prime Minister Lloyd George wrote, "The Canadians played a part of such distinction that thenceforward they were marked out as shock troops; for the remainder of the war they were brought along to head the assault in one great battle after another. Whenever the Germans found the Canadian Corps coming into the line they prepared for the worst." I would also like to add that the Australians were considered prime troops as well. Check out the before and after picks of the town when it was shelled. "WOW!"
