The British offensive, which became known as Passchendaele, got underway on 31 July, 1917 with the objective of capturing fifteen miles of territory. The attack quickly lost momentum and, it was not until finally in November that the line managed to advance seven miles. With winter setting in, the British troops were subjected to some of the worst conditions they had ever faced. During the attack 265,000 were either killed or injured. This battlefield guide gives details of the attacks whilst guiding the reader through the battlefield as it stands today. With illustrated maps and then and now photographs it will appeal to those visiting the area as well as armchair historians
