Shock Army of the British Empire presents a critical analysis of Canadian Corps operations during the 100 Days of Victory during the First World War. The 100 Days Campaign of 1918, from the attack at Amiens on 8 August to the triumphant return to Mons on 11 November, was a remarkable turnaround from the near defeat suffered by the British and Allied forces in the spring and summer at the hands of the German Kaiserschlacht. As part of the largest British Army ever assembled, the Canadian Corps under Lt Gen Sir Arthur Currie spearheaded the Allied advance to victory. Author Shane Schreiber describes how the Canadian Corps managed to turn a tactical victory into a continuous string of consecutive successes in a sustained campaign. The story of the 100 Days and the role of the Canadian Corps reveal critical lessons for both soldiers and scholars alike about the nature of the Great War and about future high-intensity conflicts in general. Major Shane Schreiber joined the Canadian Forces in 1984. He attended Royal Roads Military College and the Royal Military College, graduating from the latter with a BA (Hons) in History and Political Science. With an impressive military record, Major Schreiber is currently managing editor of the Canadian Army's professional Journal and is scheduled to serve as Chief of Staff, I Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group in summer 2004.
