The impact visiting this site is mind blowing. The sacrifice that was made in this battle needs to be remembered. We walked the battle route and then physically understood what these soldiers must have experienced.

Well kept by an Italian gent, who takes great pride in his work. If he is there when you visit, he will open up the church for you which was rebuilt by the Canadians after they flattened it.
