They Called it Passchendaele: The Story of the Third Battle of Ypres and of the Men Who Fought in it

Author(s): Lyn Macdonald

Second Hand & Rare Books

The full horror of World War I is summed up in the word Passchendaele. The struggle to capture this obscure Flemish village cost a quarter of a million casualties in one of the worst campaigns in the annals of warfare. This is the story of Passchendaele, told through the words of the men who fought there. It sets out to capture their bravery and terror in the face of battle, the details of their daily lives and the spirit of humour and comradeship that kept them going. Their individual stories are blended into a portrait of the human face of war by Lyn Macdonald, the author of "The Roses of No Man's Land" and "Somme".
