Passchendaele: Requiem for Doomed Youth

Passchendaele epitomises everything that was most terrible about the Western Front. Author Paul Ham shows how ordinary men on both sides endured this constant state of siege, with a very real awareness that they were being gradually, deliberately, wiped out.

The Battle of Passchendaele took place over several months, between July and November 1917, with Allied and German armies fighting for control of the ridges south and east of the Belgian city of Ypres.
