The 4th Division attacks the Pimple. After a short fight they capture it, and push toward the village of Givenchy-en-Gohelle. While the Allies expect counterattack, none appeared, and a day later the Germans withdraw from Givenchy and pull back onto the Douai Plain. The meticulous planning and rehearsing of the Canadian Corps pay off and their reputation as the most effective fighting machine of the Western Front, and of Canada itself, is sealed.
