Officially designated as the Third Battle of Ypres, it is a battle best known as simply Passchendaele, a name now synonymous with wretched and perilous conditions, extreme casualties, and, of course, mud. Lasting from July to November 1917, the battle claimed over 275,000 Allied lives. In this accessible and authoritative guide, Chris McCarthy offers a thorough overview of the battle’s history.
 
McCarthy examines the tactics, equipment, and decisions and experience of the commanders. He details locations of individual battalions and divisions and also provides detailed weather reports for the battle day by day—rain and more rain. This book is the ideal reference for anyone traveling to Ypres for a battlefield tour or simply hoping to learn more about this significant moment in World War I without leaving home.
