Description

Passchendaele – The Anatomy of a Tragedy

The attack on the village of Passchendaele was the notorious climax of the Third Battle of Ypres, the British and Empire armies’ toughest First World War fight.  Andrew Macdonald makes an important and dispassionate assessment of the command and operational parameters in which British forces operated.  He explains what was and was not possible in battle, and explores the commanders’ share of responsibility for the successes and failures in the hard fight up the Passchendaele ridge.
