Year by year, how Canada helped push back imperial Germany from 1915 to 1918:

The First World War remains by far Canada’s bloodiest military mission. More than 60,000 Canadians were killed, compared to 42,000-plus during the Second World War.

The casualty rate tells the story. About one in 10 who served from 1914 to 1918 died, compared to approximately one in 26 between 1939 and 1945.

The number rises if you consider only those Canadians who actually deployed to the Western Front.
