Craig Baird hosts a series of podcasts about Canadian history. In this one he reviews the Battle of St. Eloi. The 18th Battalion was involved in this battle and was their first major engagement of the war since they arrived in Belgium in September 1915.
Craig reviews the battle and shares how the environment of the craters created as a tactical advantage made “the battle a nightmare”. The Canadian’s came in to replace the British forces who they relieved.
