Description - Passchendaele 1917 by Chris McNab
Passchendaele 1917 is the story of one of the most pitiless and iconic battles of the First World War, known today as Third Ypres. Fought over three tortuous months in 1917, the fighting raged through some of the worst physical conditions of the entire war, across battlefields collapsing into endless mud and blood. Eventually more than 500,000 casualties bought front line changes that measured only in hundreds of yards. Here Chris McNab details the background and events of the battle, right through to its legacy, using fact boxes and detailed profiles of leaders and equipment, as well as maps and poignant firstperson accounts. With supporting images from the Cody Images library providing a stark look at the horrific conditions men of all sides were tasked to fight in, this is a timely account of this bloodiest of battles. AUTHOR: Chris McNab is author of many internationally bestselling books on weapons and warfare, including titles in the Battle Story series on Verdun and Cambrai, as well as The World War I Story (all The History Press). SELLING POINTS: Brought out in time for the centenary of the start of the battle (31 July 1917) Stunningly and poignantly illustrated coffee table book Heavy involved ANZAC troops, as well as French and Belgian forces, so international sales potential Author is well respected in the field 150 b/w illustrations
