Passchendaele and the Battles of Ypres 1914-18

Passchendaele, the objective of the third great battle of the Ypres, was finally captured by the Canadians on Nov. 6, 1917. Long before that, this strategically located Belgian town had ceased to exist as anything more than a name on the map, having been obliterated by artillery shells and swallowed by the Flanders mud. But by then, the town had come to symbolize the suffering of the British infantryman. This book details the experiences of those soldiers from the first clash in 1915 to the final offensive in a story that will leave no reader unmoved. First-hand accounts and color renderings of the uniforms and weapons put you there in the trenches with the ordinary soldier.
