  • The Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF) was the designation of the field force created by Canada for service overseas in the First World War. The force fielded several combat formations on the Western Front in France and Belgium, the largest of which was the Canadian Corps, consisting of four divisions. The Canadian Cavalry Brigade and the Canadian Independent Force, which were independent of the Canadian Corps, also fought on the Western Front. The CEF also had a large reserve and training organization in England, and a recruiting organization in Canada. In the later stages of the European war, particularly after their success at Vimy Ridge and Passchendaele, the Canadian Corps was regarded by friend and foe alike as the most effective Allied military formation on the Western Front. The Germans went so far as to call them "storm troopers" for their great combat efficiency. In August 1918, the CEF's Canadian Siberian Expeditionary Force travelled to revolution-rift Russia. It reinforced an anti-Bolshevik garrison in Vladivostok during the winter of 1918–19. At this time, another force of Canadian soldiers were placed in Archangel, where they fought against Bolsheviks.

  • Le Corps expéditionnaire canadien (CEC, Canadian Expeditionary Force) est une force canadienne d'outre-mer créée lors de la Première Guerre mondiale. Des quelques 630 000 Canadiens recrutés pour ce corps, environ 424 000 d'entre eux ont été envoyés outre-mer. Le corps sera divisé en plusieurs formations réparties en Angleterre, en France et en Flandre. La plus grande forme le Corps canadien, constitué de 4 divisions. Le CEC sera la principale force canadienne en Europe lors de la Première Guerre mondiale. Elle sera accompagnée sur le front ouest par la Canadian Cavalry Brigade (en) et la Canadian Independent Force. À un certain moment de la guerre, surtout après leur succès à la bataille de la crête de Vimy et à la seconde bataille de Passchendaele (en), le Corps canadien a été perçu comme l'une des formations militaires alliées les plus efficace sur le front ouest. En août 1918, le CEC met en place le Corps expéditionnaire sibérien, qui renforce la garnison anti-bolchevique de Vladivostok lors de l'hiver 1918-1919. (fr)
