About This Book

Passchendaele 1917 is the story of one of the most pitiless and iconic battles of the First World War, known today as Third Ypres. Fought over three tortuous months in 1917, the fighting raged through some of the worst physical conditions of the entire war, across battlefields collapsing into endless mud and blood. Eventually more than 500,000 casualties bought front-line changes that measured only in hundreds of yards. Here Chris McNab details the background and events of the battle, right through to its legacy, using fact boxes and detailed profiles of leaders and equipment, as well as maps and poignant first-person accounts. With supporting images from Air Sea Land Photos providing a stark look at the horrific conditions men of all sides were tasked to fight in, this is a timely account of this bloodiest of battles.
