Book 'Passchendaele 1917, Landscape of War'

In 1914 the area around Ypres was green with dense vegetation, formed and transformed by nature and by human hand. The landscape had already been the setting for battles and military operations on numerous occasions, becoming known as ‘the battlefield of Europe’ long before the First World War began.

What were the processes that gave rise to the dense landscape? How did the war and the landscape interact? And what were the lasting traces left in the landscape by the war? This story is described in the latest publication of the Memorial Museum Passchendaele 1917, ‘Passchendaele 1917 – Landscape of war’, a book that was realized with Lannoo. It describes the Great War and the Battle of Passchendaele from a unique perspective. Its main focus is on the destruction of 1917, which had a crucial influence on many aspects of the way the war was conducted. This book is now available for € 29.99 in our museum or can be pre-ordered via different online sellers.
