Passchendaele: The Story of the Third Battle of Ypres 1917

by Lyn MacDonald - £9.99  Penguin Books Ltd (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780241952412 | ISBN 10: 0241952417

The third battle of Ypres, culminating in a desperate struggle for the ridge and little village of Passchendaele, was one of the most appalling campaigns in the First World War. A million Tommies, Canadians and Anzacs assembled at the Ypres Salient in the summer of 1917, mostly raw young troops keen to do their bit for King and Country.
 
Lyn Macdonald's Passchendaele tells their tale of mounting disillusion amid mud, terror and desperate privation, yet it is also a story of immense courage, comradeship, songs, high spirits and bawdy humour.
 
Passchendaele portrays the human realities behind one of the most disastrous events in the history of warfare.
