DRAWN TO VICTORY

About Drawn to Victory

Drawn to Victory is the first in a trilogy of documentaries, activities and educational initiatives called A Nation Soars: Commemorating Canada’s Great War Flyers.

In this first instalment, narrator Dan Aykroyd tells the story of how aerial photography (with some clever Canadian innovations) led to the development of the greatest tactical weapon of the First World War — accurate battlefield maps. It also shows how in the post-war years, the new technology was applied to Canada’s vast swaths of unmapped land, and the first detailed maps of the country’s interior were created.
