Passchendaele

The epic Battle of Passchendaele, also known as the Third Battle of Ypres, was fought July 31 through November 10, 1917, for control of several ridges south and east of the Belgian city of Ypres. Although Passchendaele may be considered an Allied victory, the three-month campaign remains shrouded in controversy, particularly as it relates to the human cost.
