Walter Allward is one of Canada's most esteemed sculptors of the late 19th and early 20 centuries and is responsible for creating some of Canada's finest sculptures, and monuments. His most famous work is the Canadian War Memorial at Vimy, in France, winning a competition of some 160 submissions. It commemorates the capture of Vimy Ridge by Canadians in April 1917, during a four day battle in which some 3,600 Canadians died.
