• Published on the 100th anniversary of the battle

Using a mix of official records and personal accounts, the book develops a unique account of the battle

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the 3rd Battle of Ypres. In ‘Passchendaele: 103 Days in Hell,' Alexandra Churchill, with Andrew Holmes and Jonathan Dyer, explains this pivotal engagement using 103 personal stories of men who fought in it. Using a unique method that draws extensively on both official military records and work with the descendants and families of their chosen subjects, the authors paint a vivid and engaging picture of a battle that has become synonymous with the wasteful suffering and horror of the Western Front and how it effected men who took part in it. The book is beautifully presented with portraits, original and modern photography of the battlefield and of Commonwealth War Graves sites. This, combined with an imaginative, balanced selection of voices from on, behind, above and below the battlefields, and taken from both sides of no man's land, combine to make a lasting and worthy tribute to own for the centenary of Passchendaele.

REVIEWS
